Ace director Nadeem Baig recently announced his two films for the coming year. Both of his projects will be written by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar and Vasay Chaudhry respectively.
Talking to a leading daily, in his recent interview, however, Nadeem Baig, rather reluctantly admitted to having finalized the cast for one of his films, London Nahi Jaunga.
The film, London Nahi Jaunga, has been written by Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, who last penned down the hit cinematic outing Punjab Nahi Jaungi for Nadeem Baig.
Although work on London Nahi Jaunga hasn’t yet begun, Nadeem Baig did state that the film would be of the same genre as Punjab Nahi Jaungi and will have the same cast, which might include Mehwish Hayat in the lead as well.
The ace director stated that the scripts of both his film had been written with Humayun Saeed in mind, as the audience wanted to see him on the big screen after a two year break. “People like watching Humayun on screen, more so, after watching him in Meray Pass Tum Ho, where he has put aside a glamorous persona, for a very serious and simple role and impressed audience likewise.”
Nadeem also mentioned that he might have plans to shoot the third part for Jawani Phir Nahi Aani but that would have to wait for a few years.
Nadeem Baig delivered the biggest hit of cinema history in Pakistan, Punjab Nahi Jaungi, alongside Humayun Saeed and Mehwish Hayat and Khalil ur Rehman Qamar as the writer. Since the team would be getting together one more time, we can only hope they’ll recreate the same magic they did with their previous cinematic outing together.
