Last night, a star-studded premiere for "John" took place in Karachi, where renowned personalities such as Hania Aamir, Iqra Aziz, Yasir Hussain, Hira Mani, Kubra Khan, Zhalay Sarhadi and Zaviyar Nauman graced the event.

This indie gem follows the journey of a humble garbage collector who unwittingly gets entangled with a dangerous criminal gang, all while navigating the complexities of love.

Written and co-produced by the talented Babar Ali, who also serves as the film's director, "John" promises to deliver an unforgettable cinematic experience.
