LAHORE - Zindagi Tamasha, the much-anticipated film directed by Sarmad Khoosat, is one of the most anticipated films of ...

Directed and co-produced by Khoosat and his sister Kanwal Khoosat, the Punjabi film has been penned by Nirmal Bano. The film stars Arif Hassan, Samiya Mumtaz, Ali Kureishi, and Eman Suleman. Khoosat also makes a special appearance.

The film shows a mix of Urdu and Punjabi which is the exact way people speak in Lahore. Instead of having actors for whom Punjabi is not the first language, Sarmad Khoosat has gone for the ones to whom the language comes naturally. Completely devoid of faux glamour, the film is dark and deep in every aspect.

Zindagi Tamasha and will be released in Jan 2020.
