Sheheryar Munawar will now be seen alongside Syra Shehroz in Project Ghazi which is a directorial debut for ad filmmaker, Nadir Shah. Sheheryar is all ready for his second cinematic venture after Asim Raza’s commercial success, Ho Mann Jahan.
Ghazi is said to be Pakistan’s first superhero movie. But what makes the project even more interesting is its exceptional cast. Apart from Syra and Sheheryar, the movie comprises of exceptional actors such as Humayun Saeed, Aamir Qureshi, Adnan Jaffar and Tallat Hussain.

Project Gazi’s shoot kicks off in full swing in northern areas of Pakistan. Sheheryar spoke to media about his upcoming venture of which release date hasn’t been confirmed.
According to Shehryar, Project Gazi is a patriotic action-thriller, nothing like past films that propagate hatred for India.
“Project Ghazi is basically an action film, but has nothing to do with anti-terrorism and doesn’t campaign against India”
Munawar explained: “As an artist, we have a social responsibility to reduce negativity and with Project Ghazi, we are playing on metaphors but have stayed away from controversies. There’s no point in adding hate.”
“The film does have a nationalistic sentiment, but in a whole new light. I believe it’s something along the lines of The Bourne Identity.”
Shehryar spoke of his experience while shooting for Project Gazi. He thinks this certain project has greatly evolved him as an actor. Project Ghazi has kept our handsome hero drained, emotionally and physically.
“It’s been an amazing experience. It is entirely different from Ho Mann Jahaan. Arhaan was a grey character, with layered and complex personality,” said Munawar.
He added: “But Zain Taimoor is an out and out action hero. He’s a very nice guy, but has certain issues going on in his personal life, but overall he has a very serious aura about him [unlike Arhaan].”
“Apart form being physically challenging, it was emotionally challenging as well because I am a very expressive person, but Zain isn’t. And since we have been shooting throughout, it has taught me a bit of a self-control.”
“Since the shoot has been very tiring, I plan to take a few months off after I’ve winded up my part in July.”
He shared his work related further plans: “I’ll probably direct a couple of commercials. I believe working behind the camera has its own charm. I may get into writing as well, but I don’t want to jump into anything right now; I want to take my time.”
We hope Project Gazi climbs the ladder to success.
