Good news for all Mahira Khan fans who were upset that she might not be a part of SRK’s Raees. Looks like Mahira Khan does not need Bollywood after all. The queen is all set to rule Pakistani cinemas with yet another Shoaib Mansoor venture.
Shoaib Mansoor, the man credited for the revival of Pakistani cinema is all set for a comeback, with another potential blockbuster “VERNA.” The movie is penned and directed by the showman himself and will be produced under his banner SHOMAN Productions.
The veteran writer, producer, director and the recipient of “Pride of Performance” has previously given us blockbusters like Khuda Ke Liye and Bol, both critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies that not only brought back the long lost culture of film viewing in Pakistan but put the Pakistani film industry on the global entertainment radar.
“This film has been Written and Directed by a man of Pakistan for the men of the world to listen to women. It is to encourage women to speak up … Khuda ke liye bol verna…..”, Shoaib Mansoor told the media.
Sultana Siddiqui, President HUM Network stated, “We at HUM are very happy to have signed up as distributors for Shoaib Mansoor’s film ‘Verna’. He is a brilliant director and his views on subjects that are close to our hearts as well, are similar. Shoaib’s films are commercial but at the same time focus on topics that carry a strong message. We are hopeful that this film will be even more successful than his previous ones.
VERNA will be released worldwide on Eid-ul-Fitr 2017 by the leading film distributor of Pakistan, HUM Films.
