Family re-unions, outing plans, and lots and lots of entertainment!
Eid is the festivity we all await in our monotonous lives, and oh what fun it all is.
After Ramadan, the joy of Eid is doubled as it feels like a reward to celebrate the washing away of sins and the incredible test of tolerance during the month.
To cash in on the Eid holidays, film-makers schedule most of their films for Eid, of course.
The following Pakistani films will be releasing all over Pakistan on Eid:
Yalghaar (30th June)
The most anticipated Urdu film this year is Yalghaar. The film was announced 4 years ago after the success of Waar, which was released the same year in October. Hassan Waqas Rana, the producer of Waar, directed Yalghaar, apart from being the producer and writer both!
Shaan, Humayun Saeed and Sana Bucha will be appearing together for the very first time in a film. Bilal Ashraf, Armeena Rana Khan, Ayub Khoso and Adnan Siddiqui will also be making an appearance in the film.
Yalghaar will also be releasing in the Middle East, Europe, North America, Africa and Asia-Pacific Region. BIG PROJECT!
Mehrunissa V Lub You (26th June)
MVLU is Yasir Nawaz’s second film, produced by his own production house also. The first film (Wrong No.) proved successful at the box office, so YN took another chance with Danish Taimoor and VOILA! MVLU made.
Danish Taimoor and Javed Sheikh are again a part of YN’s movie and it is also stated to be a ROMCOM. An item song by Amna Ilyas is also rumoured to have been included in the movie. Sana Javed, a well-known TV drama actress, will be making her big-screen debut in MVLU.
Shot on an expensive set costing around 20 million Rupees, it shows the busy inner city of Karachi.
