Ali Zafar, who has mentioned his keen desire to produce a film in several interviews, has finally announced his dream project on his birthday.
Ali Zafar new movie is titled Deosai and it is an action-drama movie. It will be set in the glorious northern areas of Pakistan and will be shot on real locations. The film is set to go on floors by the end of summer 2015 and is scheduled to release in theatres internationally by the mid of 2016. The film will be directed by Imran Babur, a well known Pakistani director.
"Having worked intensely in the northern areas, I fell in love with the idea and story Ali shared with me. It's an extremely powerful story and I am excited and honoured to be a part of this project" says Imran.
"Being an artist who likes to discover the intricacies of various art forms, and experience his relationship with them, for me venturing out into creating a feature film is a most thrilling beginning. I have been wanting to play my part in the revival of our local cinema industry and make films that are not just avant guard in their narrative and aesthetics but also mean something. Films that can make a difference and are remembered for a long time for their content besides aiming to be successful commercial ventures. Which is why I waited for that right intuition and idea for my first film as an actor producer and I am extremely happy with the way it has shaped up.” Says Ali Zafar.
