Actor Ainy Jaffri and Aunn Zara star Osman Khalid Butt have been finalized as leads in upcoming rom-com Balu Mahi.
The film will be directed by Haissam Hussain of Dastaan, Dureshawar and Aunn Zara fame and produced by Mera Naam Yousuf Ha producer Sadia Jabbar. The shoot is slated to begin later this month.
Ainy, who’s back in the limelight after a two year hiatus, lent vocals for lead character Jiya in animated TV serial Burka Avenger in 2013 and made her film debut with Main Hoon Shahid Afridi the same year.
Osman, on the other hand, has amassed a large fan base after his hugely popular TV shows Aunn Zara (2013) — which was a hit across the border as well — and Diyar-e-Dil (2015).
Music composer Sahir Ali Bagga has been hired to produce the soundtrack for the film.
