On the other hand, in recent news, the movie has been banned by the censor board for unknown reasons. Paradoxically, this isn’t the first obscurity Shamoon and his team have faced in making the film.

Earlier, Shamoon shared:

Many actors left us in the process of the making of this film. Some didn’t have the courage to carry on with the harsh shoots on the scorching sun in the mountains and some simply dint believe in the film until one day the official trailer was released.

Apart from Shamoon Abbasi, the cast includes Sherry Shah, Maira, Nouman Javaid, and Dodi Khan.

Shamoon is hopeful that the matter would be sorted soon. Let’s see what happens now. For more details, stay tuned with us!
