Eid 2021 is going to be yet another stay-at-home holiday, and though Eid telefilms have long been a common sight in Pakistan, this is the second year in a row we'll actually be home to watch them. And among the plethora of films releasing on Eid-ul-Fitr is Love Vaccine.
The romcom stars Yasir Hussain, Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida star Sonya Hussyn and singer-turned-actor Farhan Saeed.
The script is written by Younus Butt, who ruled television in the 2000s with his super hit political satire show Hum Sab Umeed Sai Hain, and directed by Prem Gali director Qasim Ali Mureed. In addition to the top billed cast, the film will also star actors Gul-e-Rana and Saleem Mairaj. The film is being produced by Humayun Saeed, and will air on ARY.
"It's about love, masti and fun. Written by Younis Butt in his signature style, it is a light mood film," director Mureed told Images about his upcoming film.
You might've seen BTS posts on Hussyn's Instagram stories, with Gul-e-Rana also featuring in one, and found yourself wondering, what in the world is going on? Even Hussain, Mureed and Saeed have been posting.
Love Vaccine is what's going on.
"It's sort of a reunion of the TichButton team, not all of us are here, but enough are. It's a very beautiful and cute short story," said Hussyn. "I have only done serious characters for a while, and all my projects that are in the works are also serious, so I thought I'd opt for something more lighthearted. I thought I'd do a telefilm, a little comic, a little filmy, some colour, hasi mazaq," she added.
We're looking forward to this Eid season because, rest assured, we know our entertainment is taken care of. Stay home and stay safe everyone!
