Here are 5 things we found out about the much-anticipated film!
1. The Need For Social Messages In The Film
The cast of the film, ‘London Nahi Jaunga’ was pro at giving social messages in the film. Humayun Saeed who also works in the capacity of a producer as well as an actor said that he has always tried to integrate some kind of message in his films and ‘London Nahi Jaunga’ is no different.
Mehwish Hayat also believes that artists have a responsibility upon their shoulders and that not using their power and influence is a “disservice to their country as well as the world.”
Gohar Rasheed added further to this discussion and believed that change takes time and we cannot expect it to happen overtime.
2. Their Equation On The Set
The cast made interesting revelations about their equation with each other on the set. In fact, Humayun and Mehwish revealed that when they met each other for the first time they found themselves in the middle of a conflict and even threatened each other to go to court! Eventually, the conflict was resolved and there was no looking back!
The cast was happy to discuss Mehwish’s vibe on the set on London Nahi Jaunga:
Gohar found it hard to play his character as he feels that he has been accustomed to doing complex roles. He even revealed that he was scolded a lot by Nadeem Baig on set!
3. The Hurdles During The Making Of The Film
The team told us that completing this movie wasn’t a piece of cake and there were some setbacks in between. Firstly, the film got delayed due to Covid but Humayun is confident that the storyline is still fresh even though it was four years ago!
The cast really enjoyed doing the stunts and Mehwish shared a time she got bruised:
They touched upon the songs and how they found it difficult to memorize the lyrics because they carried a very fast beat.
4. Why Should People Watch The Film?
Humayun Saeed is optimistic about his film’s release and believes that people take ownership of their actors and a good movie produced in Pakistan will generate far more revenue than any other foreign film.
And that’s why London Nahi Jaunga has raised expectations. The cast has put their minds and hearts behind this one and we’re looking forward to some stellar entertainment this Eid!
Humayun believes that Pakistani people appreciate good entertainment and if they liked ‘Punjab Nahi Jaungi’ they are likely to enjoy ‘London Nahi Jaunga’ as well.
