KARACHI: If emotions weren’t already running high in anticipation of Mahira-starrer Ho Mann Jahaan, the film’s official trailer release just added to the growing excitement.
The movie’s trailer was unveiled at a star-studded event in Karachi on Monday where the lead cast — Mahira Khan, Adeel Husain, Sheheryar Munawar — won the audiences over.
“It’s a movie about the youth; their love, happiness, sadness, problems, celebrations, but at the same time their stories are connected to those of their parents. Yes, it’s a film for the youth, but anyone who is connected to ‘youth’, it’s also their story,” Ho Mann Jahaan director Asim Raza said.
The two-and-a-half-minute clip shows the bitter-sweet side of life; from the fun-filled days in college to the harsh realities of real life. It gives a glimpse into the relationship dynamics the trio share and the struggle to break free from stereotypes associated with a music career.
“Both actors [Adeel and Sheheryar] are very different, from different schools of thoughts. I would have to tune myself when working with each — with Adeel I’d have to be serious, with Sheheryar it was the complete opposite,” said Mahira when asked which of her two male co-stars she enjoyed working with more.
The makers of the film also shared BTS footage at the event which led to a rather pleasant revelation: the handsome Fawad Khan will be seen in a cameo in Ho Mann Jahaan.
Asim Raza’s debut venture is definitely one to look out for, the trailer is promising and keeps the viewer hooked. The cast includes veteran actors such as Bushra Ansari, Sonya Jehan, Nimra Bucha and Arshad Mehmud.
Atif Aslam, Tina Sani, Abu Mohammad, Asrar, Faakhir, Jimmy Khan, Zeb Bangash have lent vocals for the songs in the film.
The film is slated to release 1st January 2016.
