One of the most highly-anticipated movies of this season, Bilal Lashari's venture Waar is scheduled to release in all major cinemas across Pakistan this Eidul Azha.

Waar is an action/thriller with a plot centering on counter-terrorism. The cast  includes a mix of industry veterans and some newcomers: Superstar Shaan plays the lead role in the movie, while Shamoon Abbasi, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Aisha Khan, Ali Azmat, Misha Shafi Kamaran Lashari and Nadeem Abbas Rana are also in the film.

Director Bilal Lashari said, “I know that the audience has been waiting to watch Waar for quite some time now. I am a perfectionist by nature and have been fine-tuning several aspects of the movie to make it a truly worth watching experience for the audience. My team and I have put our tears, blood and sweat in this movie to create a masterpiece and an entertaining piece of art. We have raised the bar of everything in this movie from cinematography to shooting to aesthetics and we hope that the audience will enjoy watching this movie just as much as we enjoyed making it.”

This English-language film has been shot at various locations in and outside of Pakistan, from Lahore, to the beautiful hills of Islamabad and the breathtaking Swat Valley, where a major military operation was launched two years ago. Some parts of the film have also been shot in Istanbul, Turkey.
