It’s a family entertainer which will engage the audience attention from the beginning and leave them mesmerized as they exit the theatres.
While filming for the project, the captain of the ship Mr. Mahmood Akthar had to undergo cardiac medical treatment, therefore the entire team merged as a unit, wrote and shot the film together. The making of the film is indeed very special as we have put in our heart and soul into it.
Film making is always an uphill task and the experience was extra ordinary and gratifying. The producer of the film Shayan Ahmed also marks his debut in the film.
As of now I have a couple of films and drama serials in the pipeline. That’s not all, there is something being cooked for Hollywood as well. Fingers Crossed! Can’t wait for you guys to see it. Ramadan Mubarak. Stay blessed!
