Presenting the official trailer of “Verna”, a film by Shoaib Mansoor, starring Mahira Khan, Haroon Shahid, Zarar Khan, Naimal Khawar and Rasheed Naz. From the director of Khuda Kay Liye & Bol. Directed by Shoaib Mansoor and Produced by HUM Films & Shoman Productions,
From the trailer it seems like a Mahira Khan centred movie and two male leads don’t look promising enough. Haroon Shahid didn’t impress much with singing skills and its seems same for his acting too. But let’s wait and see till the movie is released.
The love anthem of the season is here “Sambhal Sambhal” sung by Haroon Shahid and Zebunnisa Bangash. This song does have a Shoaib Mansoor’s feel to it.
Speaking on the trailer launch Mahira Khan informed; “that Verna was an amazing experience for her and Shoaib Mansoor has always been like a teacher to her”.
On Haroon Shahid’s performance Mahira Khan said; “Haroon has done exceptionally well, keeping in mind that this was his first acting stint and to make things easy for him, I did what my seniors had done for me by making my life much easier and this time as a senior myself I did same”.
Haroon Shahid also spoke on this occasion and said; “it felt amazing to be a part of Shoaib Mansoor’s project both as an actor and as a musician”. He said that; “he was connected with Shoaib Mansoor since 2011 as musician and very few have this privilege of being associated with Shoaib Mansoor as a musician”.
It was very challenging task and despite being very supportive, Shoaib Mansoor is not an easy director to work with, but determination and extremely supportive attitude from other colleagues especially Mahira Khan made life a lot easier.
Mrs. Sultana Siddiqui, President of Hum Network spoke highly of Shoaib Mansoor and praised his efforts of introducing new faces in acting and in music. According to her the most magical words by Shoaib Mansoor are; “Khuda kay liay, BOL, Verna”.
She further said that; “socials messages are must and it’s about time that we should start speaking up on social issues and social problems”.
On the concluding note President of Hum Network requested all to support and promote Pakistanis movies as we doing very well with very low budget movies and competing against very high budgets ones. If we keep progressing like this, inshaALLH within next 5 years we will be somewhere.
“Verna” is set to release on 17th November 2017.
