“Be tolerant, Allah will be tolerant with you” – Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), source: Musnad Ahmad. On 24 January 2020, I’m bringing to theatres across Pakistan, a piece of my heart, Zindagi Tamasha, a film by Khoosat Films (distributed by IMGC Distribution Club). A story of tolerance, forbearance and compassion, made only with a lot of love and solicitude over the past one year. Thank you for all the feedback since the initial release of the trailer in September 2019. Film is a complex medium, and one for the masses, hence keeping in consideration as many opinions and sensibilities as possible, and maintaining respect for public/state institutions, I’m most happy to present on the screens a version cleared by all 3 censor boards of Pakistan- federal, Punjab and Sindh (&Balochistan), after a review and a re-review. I request all of you to please watch Zindagi Tamasha in cinemas and to let it speak to you as you please. This is a film about all of us, for all of us. #zindagitamasha @khoosatfilmsofficial

While speaking to media in a recent meet and greet, he said: “I’m not trying to show controversy. I request you all to please watch Zindagi Tamasha in cinemas and to let it speak to you as you please. It is a film about all of us, for all of us,”

Sarmad added that he understands how film is a complex medium so in the making of Zindagi Tamasha he has taken into account all sensibilities and maintained respect for masses and institutions.

“God is not a fan of arrogance. Whether it can break any mold, the future will tell,” he added. 

“Making a film is our responsibility; watching the film is yours but it can be said that the film has been made with clean intentions, and tells a story sensitively,” added Sarmad.
