The teaser trailer of Pakistani war film ‘Yalghaar’ was released around two years back, since then the film has become one of the highly anticipated movies of all time in the country.
Yalghaar was originally slated to be released in 2015 but had suffered major delays for a number of different reasons. According to the director, cinematographer, and writer of the movie, Hassan Waqas Rana, the movie was delayed because the team had to take several re-shoots.
It was tough for the director to get the team back together to re-shoot some of the scenes. After wrapping the initial shoot, the actors and actresses of the project at that time had already begun working on other projects.
Apparently, the director wasn’t happy with some of the shots and he had to reschedule a lot of shots for the movie.
Fans of ‘Yalghaar’ were surprised on Sunday when one of the leading actors of the film, Bilal Ashraf, confirmed the release date of the movie through a Facebook post.
According to Bilal Ashraf and Armeena Rana Khan, the film will be released on Eid-Ul-Fitr 2017.
Yalghaar is highly anticipated for a number of different reasons. It has a huge cast of well-known celebrities and has a budget of over PKR 60 Crores. The film will depict the events from Pakistan Army’s 2009 Swat Operation in which the army fought against Taliban militants for control of the district.
The cast of the film includes celebrities like Shaan Shahid, Humayun Saeed, Adnan Siddiqui, Armeena Khan, Ayesha Omer, Ayub Khoso, Gohar Rasheed, Hassan Rana, Bilal Ashraf, Sikander Rizvi, Sana Bucha, Uzma Khan, Aleeze Nasser, Umair Jaswal and Ashir Azeem.
