The movie has a stellar cast, including Osman Khalid Butt, Amna Ilyas, Mohsin Abbas Haider and Ali Kazmi. It has been penned by Irfan Ahmed Urfi and Malik.
Baaji is scheduled to hit the screens in mid-2019.
Earlier on May 03, sources had revealed that a film was being made on Meera’s life, directed by ace ad film-maker Saqib Malik. This would be his directorial debut on the big screen.The film would have elements inspired by Meera’s life, including her journey within the film industry as an actor and her rise to fame. It would also depict her viral sex-tape and pictures which caused her career’s downfall.
Although the plot is inspired by some aspects of the Nazar star’s life, the film is not a biopic.The sources further revealed that although it can be classed as a multi-genre film, it is mainly a thriller.
The film’s title has not been finalized yet. However, the cast includes Ali Kazmi, Osman Khalid Butt, Mawra Hocane, Nayyer Aejaz, Meera Jee amongst others.
The shooting for the film started on April 25, 2018, in Karachi and will move to Lahore in mid-May.
Malik has previously announced many films, boasting of big casts members. However, this time, it seems like his claims are being turned into reality. We hope to see his film on the silver screen soon.
