Blockbuster movie Waar is set to be  screened in UK from January 17, the film's official Facebook page announced on Tuesday.


According to a schedule posted on the page, it listed release in 23 cinemas in the UK including in 12 Cineworld cinemas, 10 Odeon Cinemas and one VUE Cinema.

The movie will be exhibited in London, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Bolton, Bradford, Sheffield, Leicester, Leeds, Glasgow, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent, Cardiff, High Wycombe and West Bromwich.

The film, directed by Bilal Lashari, had a record breaking run in Pakistan before an anticipated release in Dubai, on December 12, 2013.

The film had grossed Rs230 million on the domestic circuit since its release on Eidul Azha.

There has also been some speculation about the film’s release in India. Bilal Lashari said, “I have not approached anyone specifically for distribution in India.” Given the theme of the film and the perception that ‘Waar shows India as cause of nation’s problems’, the director says, “I have no idea how people will react, but it would be great if it ends up being screened. A lot of people are saying it’s never going to happen.”

The movie was released on 42 screens across Pakistan and beat the box office record for an opening day take of Rs11.4 million.

It is an action/thriller and drama film, written by Hassan Waqas Rana and stars Pakistan’s actors, Shaan Shahid and Shamoon Abbasi. The storyline has been inspired by the war on terror in Pakistan and its effects on the world, but with a stylised interpretation of it.
