It was only a matter of time before television's favourite damsel-in-distress, Sajal Aly, made her way to the big screen. And we hear she's signed her debut film already.
The project titled Ishq 2020 is being produced by Crew Motion Pictures (CMP), the makers of the acclaimed feature film Dukhtar (2014) and documentary, Without Shepherds (2013).
Sharing that CMP has four feature film ventures planned for 2016-17, the team calls Ishq 2020 "A youth based romantic comedy with a female protagonist, featuring young and promising actors like Sajal Ali, Sanam Chaudhry and Muneeb Butt," adding that "The film will have a couple of other young and powerful actors too."
Butt gives us some insight into the plot of the movie: "I wouldn't restrict it to one genre; there's romance, action, comedy but at the heart of the story, there is a love triangle."
The movie will be shot in many different parts of the country, including Lahore, Bhawalpur, Naraan and Kaghan, to name a few.
Butt adds, "Since the movie chronicles the journey of the two main characters, in the process, we see lots of different parts of the country."
