The booklet also had a light-hearted note signed off by the film’s director Ahsan Rahim, urging Maya to “Kindly stop training.” Last week, Ahsan sent Ali a copy saying “Kindly start training.”

The upcoming romantic comedy is being helmed by Rahim and produced by Zafar’s production house, Ligthingale Productions. Ahsan – known for making ground-breaking music videos and defining a new style in the world of advertising – will be making his first foray into cinema with Teefa in Trouble. The film will also mark Maya’s debut on the big screen.
