We were looking forward to seeing Iman Ali and Humayun Saeed together in the latter's next film production, the rom-com Main Punjab Nahin Jaoongi (MPNJ). But it turns out that the plans for that pairing have been canned.

In a conversation with Images, Iman Ali confirmed that she has "opted out" of the film. The Mah-e-Mir star did not provide any reasons for her decision.

MPNJ producer and lead actor Humayun Saeed confirmed Iman's departure from the film.

"Mehwish Hayat is now doing Main Punjab Nahin Jaoongi," he shared, adding that "Iman is doing another film with me."

So, we guess all hope for seeing this good-looking couple on the big screen is not lost!

MPNJ is being directed by Jawani Phir Nahi Ani director Nadeem Baig and written by Sadqay Tumhare writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar. The film will also star Ahmed Ali Butt, Samina Peerzada and Saba Waseem. The film will be shot in Karachi and Lahore, and some scenes were said to be planned for shooting in Romania.

I like Iman Ali but Mehwish Hayat is a far better choice. She did a great job in Jawani Phir Nahi Ani and Actor in Law. Mehwish is the star of today. But will love to see Iman and Humayun togather in the other film. I also want to see Iman Ali opposite Muamer Rana.

Iman Ali was not happy with the script. Also the film's writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar has been demanding that producers choose Mehwish Hayat as female lead for his film.

Iman Ali have a very arrogant personality, Which is not great for her. She is loosing too many projects because of her this attitude.

This is over exposure. Not good to see the same faces on tv and big screen. We need some fresh faces and new people, especially in film
