By Sarah Ilyas Ehtasham– After the success of WAAR , Hassan Waqas Rana is working on his second project “Yalghaar”, under the production of MindWorks Media, which will be released soon. The famous “Waar” producer,said that his second film “Yalghaar” is the most expensive project in the history of Lollywood. While talking to media, the producer also stated that this movie is a tribute to the Peshawar School Attack victims.
The movie is based on the true story of 72 hours long Army Operation held in Swat. The story line revolves around the lives of those Military Officers and Soldiers who were involved in the operation and how they got affected on a personal level due to the operation. It took almost three years for the producer of the movie to work and research on the script, cast and crew of this huge project. Other than the heavy cast of the film the producer used vast amount of choppers, heavy ammunition and amazing locations to make the movie real to life. In Karachi the crew dug an artificial tunnel to replicate the one in North Waziristan.
When the Waar Producer stated that “Yalghaar” is a heavy budget movie, he wasn’t wrong as the movie involves quite a star studded cast. The famous television actor and host who is associated with the media industry for more than two decades, Adnan Siddique, is playing the role of an army officer Col Imran in the movie. After starting his career from the famous drama serial “Aroosa” to his mind blowing performances in “Meri Zaat Zara-e-Benishan” and “Maat” on Pakistani Television and “A mighty Heart” in Bollywood opposite Angelina Jolie, Adnan won the hearts of million.
Starting his career from “Bulandi” opposite Reema Khan and doing 500 films in Pakistani film industry, the super dashing director, actor, writer and model, Shan Shahid is set to perform the lead role of Colonel Asad in the film “Yalghaar”. While Umair Jaswal (vocalist of Qayaas) , Bilal Ashraf and Sikander Rizvi are set to make their acting debut in the film and will be sharing great space with the lead actors.
The well-known actor, producer and director Humayun Saeed , is also the part of the film. The owner of Six Sigma productions, Humayun, is playing the role of a militant Torjan. The Lux Style Award winner for the best Actor spend many days with the captive militants in order to adapt his character and make his acting real to life.
The famous “Bulbulaye” actor and singer Ayesha Omer aka “Khoobsorat” is playing the role of Zarmina and Sana Bucha who was the news anchor and program anchor on Geo News is playing the role of Sadia, a reporter, in the film.
There are more than 150 written characters in the movie, so Hassan Waqas Rana has given equal chance to the new comers as well, beside the fact that a huge amount is on stake. We are looking forward for this movie and expect that it is even a bigger success than Waar.
