After not being given nearly enough screen time here, the movie has been nominated for Best Feature at this year's Jaipur International Film Festival.

Load Wedding is the story of Raja (Fahad Mustafa) who has loved Meeru (Mehwish Hayat) since they were children. But he could never get himself to confess his love for her, because he knew that he couldn't marry her until his elder sister Baby (Faiza Hasan) is married. And that isn't happening because Raja, being the head of the family after his father's death, can't get enough jahez to get a decent rishta. The film shows the actual stress, pain and unnecessary hassle behind making a wedding happen in the first place.

The five-day event that will be held in Jaipur from 18-22 January 2019 will offer filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts a platform to enjoy unique movies from across the world.

It's a good time for the filmmaking duo that is Fizza Ali Meerza and Nabeel Qureshi; three of their four films – Na Maloom Afraad 1 & 2 and Actor In Law – will be screened at the South Asia Forum For Art & Creative Heritage (SAFACH) in Delhi next month.
