The much-awaited screening of The Reluctant Fundamentalist finally took place in Lahore on Thursday evening, amidst amplified curiosity and excitement.

Before the show, cast member singer-actor Meesha Shafi posted, “Can’t wait to watch it with my friends and family,” on Twitter, adding later that she wished her “lovelies” – director Mira Nair and actor Riz Ahmed – were in the walled city to watch the premiere show.

While the foreign cast and crew members could not make it to the Lahore show, Nair was busy promoting the film earlier this month in Mumbai, where celebs including Priyanka Chopra attended. The Cinestar event in Lahore, which was co-hosted by HKC and Encyclomedia PR, was attended by TRF author Mohsin Hamid, Meesha Shafi, Atif Aslam, Ali Zafar, Cybil Chowdhry and many others.
