Did Quaid-e-Azam really want to be an actor?

The trailer of the much-anticipated film Actor in Law is finally out and it has all the elements of a "social comedy."

The "story of real and fake" shows the lead actor Fahad Mustafa as an aspiring actor Shan Mirza, who after facing restrictions from his father, played by Om Puri, takes up the role of a lawyer but continues to channel his inner talent.

His character apparently draws inspiration from Quaid-e-Azam, who himself wanted to be an actor but ended up as a lawyer.

From then on, Fahad showcases his acting skills in the courtroom by delivering some famous dialogues.

What left us in fits of laughter was "Tight Karain Issay" that was indeed a play on Ayesha Sana's claim to fame "Bright Karain Issay."

Mehwish Hayat can be seen as a journalist who is apparently playing the love interest of Fahad.

Alyy Khan seems to be taking a dig at the famous TV anchor Mubashir Lucman with his character Muddasir Sultan.

With a glimpse of Ayyan Ali and the film touching the sensitive topic of minorities, Nabeel Qureshi's directorial seems to be up to date on current affairs.

Actor in Law however, takes a dramatic turn when Shan Mirza is exposed and proved to be a criminal.

But what makes him a criminal is yet to be known and for that, we can't wait to watch the film.
