‘Waar’ hero Shaan injured in car accident

Pakistan’s superstar Shaan injured himself during a movie shoot on Monday, March 12, 2012. The good news for his fans is that he is fine, as no serious harm was done.

While picturising some shots of Masood Butt’s movie, Shaan got hit by a jeep, which went out of control. He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of the injuries.

The doctors did not see any major concern and discharged the superstar after giving him the required treatment. However, he will be unable to take part in any film shoots for at-least three weeks, as he has been advised rest.

Pakistan film industry is incomplete without Shaan, as he has contributed a lot to it. He is often criticised for his Punjabi movies, which always had weak scripts and no direction at all.

However, the 40-year-old actor defended those ventures, saying that they kept the industry alive. He waited for the right time and then acted in one of the most successful Lollywood flicks "Khuda Kay Lye."

The movie directed by Shoaib Mansoor was released in 2007 and was loved by masses. Although there were some very good actors in the film, Shaan was the best of them. He managed to win the Lux Style Award for Best Actor that year and then gave brilliant
performances in "Majajan" and "Zill-e-Shah."

The dashing actor is currently working on a couple of his own directional ventures. One of them is "Chup" in which leading model Juggan Kazim will work alongside him.

However, Shaan’s fans are anxiously awaiting his upcoming action thriller "Waar", which will be released anytime this year. The youtube trailer of the movie attracted more than six lac people in the first month, which goes onto show the excitement
of the fans.

Waar is the most expensive flick ever produced by Pakistan and its international release will be done by Warner Brothers. The cast of the movie is: Shan Shahid, Shamoon Abbasi, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ali Azmat, Aisha Khan and Meesha Shafi. It
is directed by Bilal Lashari, one of the brightest directors in the country.
