Anchor turned director Kamran Shahid’s upcoming films Huey Tum Ajnabi is all set for an Eid ul Fitr release this year. This was announced last week at the trailer launch event of the film in Lahore in which most of the cast appeared alongside the captain of the ship. Kamran Shahid who is a well known TV anchor and journalist told journalists during the event that his film was based on true events and revolved around the saddest event in Pakistan’s history, the fall of Dhaka. Although the film would have been ideally released during the 50 year anniversary of the event in 2021, it was delayed due to various reasons, including Covid.
The event was attended by the film’s leading man Mikaal Zulfiqar, Shamoon Abbasi, Mehmood Aslam, Shafqat Cheema, and Sohail Ahmed as well as the writer and director Kamran Shahid himself. Although his father film actor Shahid had bankrolled the film, he wasn’t able to make it to the launch ceremony due to personal reasons whereas the film’s leading lady Sadia Khan had some prior commitments. The film’s title track was played live by Baqir Abbas and his crew and mesmerized the audience which included journalists and well wishers.
