Which Imran Aslam? The young TV actor or the old journalist (Ex-editor of The News and the current Geo President). By reading Rehana Saigol's name may I assume it would be the later one?

Great decision DAWN. Pakistan's movie Phoenix is about to rise from the ashes. And pumping money in a highly prospective industry studded with the beautiful and talented artist is the surefire way to resurrect the art of movie making in this country. My heartiest congratulations to the investors.

Film's name seems inspired by a famous punch line of SRK's movie Kal Ho Na Ho. Hopefully the story would not be a copy.

I love mahira.

One would think life in Pakistan is all about rom-com? We need another film about terrorism and romance like we need a whole in the head? are there no simple stories to tell about everyday life one is left to believe that Pakistani families spend major part of their lives dealing with marriages in their family, event planning for these marriage and rewriting the codes of arranged marriages.
