It's raining rom-coms in Pakistan as we gear up for another one later this year.

Aabis Raza's upcoming Maan Jao Naa is based on the struggles faced by friends who transition from university life into the practical world.

Produced by Muhammad Khalid Ali and co-written by Asma Nabeel & Ahsan Raza, the film stars Adeel Chaudhry, Hajra Yamin, Ayaz Samoo, Asma Abbas, Ghana Ali, Asif Raza Mir and "a surprise international star"!

Images got in touch with Moor star Ayaz Samoo for deets on his character and here's what we know so far:

"My character's name is Asim. He's a fun guy and the film shows his transformation from being funny to serious -- you know, as someone matures with time and age, that's been showcased through my character."

He explains that the film is a mix of "lighter and emotional moments" and comprises of a "good soundtrack."

The film has already starting shooting; 15 days in and Ayaz already has stories to tell.

"[We were shooting] in the blistering heat; from sunburn to swimming in the cold water at Hawkes' Bay," he says. "There was a scene when we were dying from the heat and then there was a scene when we were shivering from the cold."

With a promising start to 2017, the actor shares he has two more film projects in the pipeline which he cannot disclose at the moment.
