The 'Thori Der' singer has just landed his first film project as an actor and he's set to play its male lead. It's said that the female lead will be announced in the coming days.

What's interesting about the film is that it's not only written by Punjab Nahi Jaungi writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, but will also mark his debut as a film director! Who saw that coming?

Khalil ur Rehman's scripts always leave an impact — he has TV hits like Pyarey Afzal, Sadqay Tumhare and Mera Naam Yousuf Hai to his credit and Punjab Nahi Jaungi is approaching six weeks in the box office. So naturally, we're excited to see what he brings to the big screen in his directorial debut.

We're glad that Farhan's following up his popular role in TV drama Udaari with an equally promising project. We'll have more details soon. Watch this space.
