Pakistani film-maker Syed Noor is all set to make his new film Bhai Wanted. Speaking at an event organised by the Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ) at its office in the Karachi Press Club, he shared that his film will attempt to highlight Pakistan’s beauty and that Karachi is indeed the city of lights. He proclaimed that the film will be shot entirely in Karachi. “The film industry will see its rise again from Karachi [as it did in the past],” he said.
Noor stated the location for Bhai Wanted has been scouted and that the film’s cast will include renowned senior artistes. The film-maker said his film will feature newcomers as well since he feels that Pakistan is brimming with fresh talent.
Given that Pakistanis are developing an inclination toward local cinema, Noor feels that the film industry is on the edge of resurgence. However, he said the process of revival may take some time due to lack of required facilities.
We wish Noor the best for his upcoming venture!
