Bilal Lashari’s “Waar” release delayed

Lollywood film industry have dealt some bad news to their fans eagerly awaiting Bilal Lashari’s “Waar” with reports in media suggest that the release date of the much anticipated movie has been further pushed back.

It was earlier reported that the movie, written by Hassan Waqas Rana, will be released till Eid-ul-Azha but due to an unconfirmed delay, the English–Language film will now hit the stores at the end of this year.

The film is said to base on true events of terrorism in Pakistan and their after effects on the world. A host of Hollywood movies have also tried to portray the war on terrorism including “Syriana” and “A mighty heart” but most
of the movies did not live to fans expectations and failed to portray the situation properly.

Famous music videos director, Bilal Lashari, has now stepped in to the business portraying the war situation in the country with his innovative style in his debut movie backed by Warner Bros.

Lashari, who is famous for directing iconic music videos for Mekaal Hasan band, Entity Paradigm, Atif Aslam and Overload, has turned into a film director hoping to bring a change and revival to the Pakistani cinema.

“Hopefully this film will be out by the end of this year. I can’t give out the release date right now but it’s going to be something that’s very exciting and again it’s going to play an important part in reviving Pakistani cinema.
We’re trying to make a film that is of international standards.” Lashari was quoted as saying.

“Waar” is an action packed thriller, starring Pakistan legendary actor Shan along with Shamoon Abbassi, who had started her Lollywood career with Faysal Bukhari’s “Bhai Log”.

Rest of the cast are new comers while reports in media suggest Pakistani TV actress Ayesha Khan, Pakistani sensational singers, Ali Azmat and Meesha Shafi all have a major role to play in the upcoming movie.

What makes the project more interesting is the fact that its soundtrack has been done by Pakistani teen heart-throb band “Qayaas”.

It is expected that the movie could prove out to bring revival to Pakistani cinema after the success of Shoaib Mansoor’s “Bol” earlier this year.
