As Pakistani film industry is undergoing a revival phase, it is good to hear about the new projects comprising production of movie. A number of movies have been being made for past couple of years, which have succeeded in persuading the deviated audience to get back into cinema for watching Pakistani movies.
But today, we are going to discuss Bachaana – a movie starring Sanam Saeed and Mohib Mirza.
While Saeed will play the role of a sweet and bubbly Indian girl name Aalia, Mirza’s remarkable truck driving dexterity in Dukhtar have landed him the role of Vicky, a Pakistani taxi driver. The movie is being made keeping in mind producing a movie that could bring Pakistan and India closer together.
In Bachaan, runs into trouble in Mauritius desperate for help that bring him closer to Vicky. Their unlikely love story discloses in this romantic thriller, which will be screened in both Pakistan and India.
Mirza, who is playing lead role in upcoming movie, has got himself recognized with films like Seedlings and Dukhtar, and while we have yet to see Saeed act in a film (her debut film Mah-e-Meer is in production), her TV plays and serials like Zindagi Gulzar Hai have achieved her enormous fame in both Pakistan and India.
She says that through her upcoming movie, she is striving to bridge the gap between the two nations. She said ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the script and Aalia’s character. She was very unlike the roles I had played before. All of us, in whatever way we can , are wanting to and trying to bridge the gaps and differences between India and Pakistan.’
Further she said that Pakistanis have been die-hard fans of Indian movies for decades, and now they are enjoying Pakistani storytelling through the small screen. ‘Our actors are crossing borders and so are our stories now. And that is what I saw in Bachaana. The film is light and easy. I was really enjoying getting into Aalia’s character with the mannerisms, clothes and diction.’
