After a year's absence from the silver screen, actor Mohib Mirza is set to return with romantic thriller Bachaana.
Directed by Nasir Khan from Lahore, the film sees Mohib in the role of Vicky, a Pakistani taxi driver in Mauritius, who is to become the saviour of Aalia (played by Sanam Saeed), an Indian girl stuck in a bad situation. As the two strangers embark on an adventure together, they will find themselves falling for each other.
"Bachaana is a very light, commercial film that doesn't try to teach a bilawajay ka sabak (an unnecessary lesson)," said Mohib Mirza in a chat with Images. "I'm very excited to return to comic grounds in this film."
Mohib has been made consistent appearances in films, starting off from the relatively unknown Inshallah (2009) to gaining prominence as a film actor with Josh and Seedlings in 2013 and Dukhtar in 2014.
Sanam Saeed, on the other hand, makes a highly awaited film debut in Bachaana. The film also stars Adeel Hashmi in an important role.
The film is set to release in the 'upcoming Valentine's season'. Its trailer will release on January 5.
