Kamal Khan’s critically acclaimed film, Laal Kabootar, has been selected as Pakistan’s submission to the Oscars 2019.

The makers of the film took to social media to share the news. “Something for us all to be proud of as a team. All the sweat and hard work was worth it.”

Speaking to The Express Tribune, Mansha Pasha shared, “Kamal, Hania, and Kamil worked so hard on this film. They had such a great work ethic that this film was going to be one of its kind. We hoped Laal Kabootar would be the trailblazer for more Pakistani films that tap into different genres and diverse content. This film will Insha Allah stand the test of time.”

Starring Mansha, Ahmed Ali Akbar, Ali Kazmi, and others, the film revolves around the gritty, raw life of Karachi.
