Former couple Syra Yousuf and Shehroz Sabzwari are going to be starring in a movie about winning back your ex.
They started work on the movie before their divorce. Director Omar Essa didn't want to give away the title of the film but confirmed that it's a love story.
So far, they've filmed 90% of the movie and have just a couple of days of filming left. "I am not keeping any expectations as of now. With the condition of our industry/business models, thinking about it will just make me 'chirchira'. That's not a good place to be when I am still in the creative process," he told Images.
"I have done a reasonably good job in filming I feel, but things can still go wrong in post production. So let's keep praying for the best."
The movie is about more than just the former couple though. "We are not their 'khandan walay'. We have a professional relationship and they believe in the project. They have worked hard towards it, especially Syra," Essa said. "The role required a lot from her, physically and emotionally. Even if we had started production after their problems, I like to believe they would have still done the project."
Sabzwari confirmed to Images that he and Yousuf are working together on the project but refused to give more details.
In March 2020, the couple announced that they were getting divorced after seven years of marriage. They cited irreconcilable differences and asked people to respect their choices and privacy. They have a daughter together named Nooreh.
Sabzwari has since married model Sadaf Kanwal. His quarantine wedding was announced in May.
