Why Fahad Mustafa?
Director and scriptwriter Nabeel Qureshi is asked this question all the time. I always know what he will say in reply: “Why not Fahad Mustafa?”
The last time I asked Nabeel this question, he was working with the actor in last year’s Load Wedding. This time, he has just confirmed Fahad as the hero of his upcoming movie, Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad.
The movie is slotted for an Eid-ul-Azha 2020 release and while the female lead is yet to be confirmed, Fahad is certainly going to be a part of it.
“He’s a good actor. He works hard. We have a great working relationship. Why does everyone ask me this question?” laughs Nabeel.
I ask him a new question then: Filmwala Pictures, the production company owned by Nabeel and Fizza Ali Meerza has also announced another movie scheduled to release in 2020: Fatman. Will Fahad also be the leading man in this other movie?
“We haven’t finalised the cast yet for that movie,” says Nabeel.
Will Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad be a patriotic movie?
“It’s more of an entertainer, packed with action, drama and comedy,” reveals Fizza.
The movie is all set to shoot soon. Fahad’s inclusion in a Filmwala Pictures’ project is a no-brainer but it will be interesting to see who the actor’s leading lady turns out to be this time around.
