Known for his on-screen villainous persona, Shamoon Abbasi, is now all set to don director’s hat for his upcoming untitled film.

The unofficial first look of the film has recently been leaked on social media where television actress, Sherry Shah, can be seen in an unrecognizable avatar. The actress shaved her head and gained an astounding 40 pounds for an interesting role in the film.

We recently contacted Shamoon Abbasi to know more about the film, but he remained reluctant in sharing details and asked us to wait for official poster to come out soon.

“I will be able to give you all details once we officially release the poster in two weeks,” he stated.

However, the actor shared interesting line-up of actors he cast in his next offering. According to Shamoon Abbasi, the film starred Zhalay Sarhadi, Nauman Javed, Imran Rizvi, Myra Khan, Kanwal Khan and Majid Khan in pivotal roles. He also said that a couple of new faces from Dubai and Holland would also be introduced in the film.

This untitled film is not Shamoon Abbasi’s first directorial film. In 2014, he announced his first directorial project, Gidh, starring Shaan Shahid, Humayun Saeed and Sara Loren in lead roles. The film trailer was also launched the same year in October but the film never saw the light of the theatre and its released got postponed for indefinite period.

Now since the actor has announced his next directorial project, we really wish that it gets release in theatres and play an important role in the revival of cinema in Pakistan.

As far as television directorial projects are concerned, Abbasi has directed adventure shows such as the Indonesian game show Morven Gold Aventure Bali, Sunsilk 21st Century Woman of Pakistan, Rescue 15 (a show based on a police department), and reality shows including Saaye, which is based on paranormal activities.
