Fox 5 news channel highlighted the upcoming Pakistani movie ‘Yalghaar.’ The actors said that the movie is about a social responsibility. Hum Films will debut “Yalghaar” in 22 countries. The movie is inspired by actual events of a military operation in the Swat Valley against an extremist stronghold.
“I thought that this film was just a brilliant chance of putting what I think forward in a different way,” actress Sana Bucha said in the video.
Actress Armeena Khan added, “There’s a lot of people fighting against terrorism. We’re up in arms against it, we’re speaking out about it, we’re going out, demonstrating, which is never highlighted.”
“The movie itself is a message to the nation and a warning to all the terrorists,” actor Adnan Siddiqui said. “We’re here and we will fight,” he further added.
“We used real ammunition, real blasts, real military — everything is real in this film,” Bucha said.
“We were shooting in areas which actually had stuff going on, so we couldn’t always gain access,” actress Ayesha Omar said.
“What I’m doing is right. I just cannot let this happen in this country or anywhere else in the world,” Siddiqui said.
“If we can play a part in spreading this message, in supporting this subject, it’s huge,” Omar said. “It is huge because the message is going across to the entire world.”
The movie is no showing on all cinemas. The actors hope that the movie serves as a message to their country and worldwide that terrorism can be defeated and we can find peace.
