KARACHI: It was just a few months back that actor Javed Sheikh revealed how he had started planning for his comeback as director with brand new feature film Wujood. It now appears that the project seems to be moving smoothly, with the director having finalised some of the vital personnel for his crew.

According to Sheikh, veteran music composer Sahir Ali Bagga will be producing the original soundtrack for the film, which will mark Javed’s return to directorship after nearly eight years. “The majority of the soundtrack will be composed by [Sahir Ali] Bagga but it is likely that we may also have one or two more musicians contribute their tracks to the film as well,” the Na Maloom Afraad-actor told The Express Tribune.

Although the cast for the movie is yet to be finalised, the popular Javed did hint that he was in talks with a few artistes to feature in the film. “As of now, I have not yet finalised anyone for the movie and will make an announcement about my cast in the coming few weeks,” he shared. Apart from directing and producing the film, Sheikh will also be playing a supporting role in Wujood. During an earlier interview with the publication, Javed had described the film as a “violent love story.”

Aside from being preoccupied with Wujood, Javed recently wrapped up work on a Bollywood film titled, Happy Bhaag Jayegi. “Even though my work on the film is complete, I may go there [India] for a few days of additional shooting for the movie.” Expected to release in July, Happy Bhaag Jayegi marks the Bollywood and feature film acting debut of Javed’s daughter Moomal Sheikh.
