Pakistani film actor Meera is to feature in an upcoming Pashto film, “Worbal” which will be shot in Murree and Islamabad.
Producer of the film, Shahid Khan while talking to The Express Tribune said that the venture has a national focus, unlike most Pashto films which usually restrict themselves to audiences from the province.
“The film will prove to be a milestone for the Pakistani film industry,” he said, adding that it was great that mainstream actors were now expressing an interest to act in Pashto films.
“Meera agreed to work on the project, despite having other offers of regional films,” said Khan.
Muhammad Kamal Pasha wrote the narrative of the film, while Saeed Tehkali worked on the dialogues. Tahseen Khan has been tasked the camera work.
Khan said the fact that so many actors were now acting in Pashto films was a testament to their increasing standards.
Other famous actors who have appeared in Pashto films include Veena and Khushbu.
Last month, the Home and tribal affairs department Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) banned five Pashto films from being screened in cinemas on the grounds that they had been released without obtaining approval from the censor board.
