The music launch and news conference of one of the most awaited Pakistani movies “Na Maloom Afrad” finally took place at PC Hotel Karachi on Friday, 5th September 2014.
Almost every member of the team was present there except for Salman Shahid and Kubra Khan, whom everyone wanted to see and know about. Kubra is a British model and actress and Na Maloom Afraad(NMA) will be her acting debut. Also, the movie is Mohsin Abbas Haider’s debut as an actor as well as a singer. He has sung the song “Sapno ki mala” for this movie. About him, Fahad Mustafa, who is playing one of the three main roles, said:
There were some questions that what the movie will be about. For this, Fahad quipped:
“The basic purpose of this movie is to entertain you. There isn’t any purpose or any sad part. There are some very minute details and messages that we’ve tried to convey you through humor. The movie is an entertainer and there is no such thing like patriotism on which most of our movies are based. ”
Talking about the music of this movie, there are a total of 9 songs. The music has been given by Shani and Kami. The song names are quite fun and are as follows:
2. Makri ka jala – Shani
4. Goli TT main phans gayi – Shani
5. Manga Tanga – Rajab Ali
6. Mere Neher – Various Artists
There is an item song in the movie too called “Billi”, which is picturized on Mehwish Hayat and created quite a buzz in the trailer. A few clips of this song were shown and believe me, it is quite worth it. About the music, Fahad said:
“This will be the first time in Pakistan that we’ll have our very own songs on which I and Mohsin will perform and there will be signature steps that will be followed by every person in Pakistan.”
Fizza Ali Meerza, who is the producer of this movie also blessed the media with a few words about Na Maloom Afrad:
“It is a Pakistani movie that we’ve made with great love. Two Pakistani movies are releasing this eid i.e NMA and O21. We all should stand up together and help Pakistani cinema revive on its own. We do not want any Indian film on this Eid. We want Pakistani movies to do well and rock the cinemas.”
A question was asked by a representative that the story and appearance of this movie resembles a Bollywood classic comedy “Hera Pheri”.
Nabeel Qureshi, the director of the movie, replied her with quite an amazing and eye-opening answer that said:
“Pakistani audience is not used to seeing a well-shot film. We have made a well-shot film. The colors and sound are so good that it got you thinking NMA has an Indian essence. It’s not Indian, it’s totally Pakistani. Even India could not copy this film because all these situations are only found in Pakistan.”
Javaid Shaikh and Urwa tul Wusqa Hocaine also shared their experience about the movie. Also, Mehwish Hayat mentioned how good it was to do the item song “Billi” for the movie and also appreciated the hard work and devotion of Nabeel and Fizza towards this movie.
To support the movie, many other notable celebrities were also spotted there. The Actor and Producer of Main Shahid Afridi, Humayun Saeed, and the young talented Producer of upcoming Pakistani movie Operation O21 , Azaan Sami Khan, were also present there. Stars like Hamza Ali Abbasi and Imaan Ali came late to the event place. To show her full support to the movie, Iman Ali was wearing a sexy black tee that read “Na Maloom Afraad”.
The movie is scheduled to release on this Eid-ul-Azha along with another promising Pakistani Movie Operation O21.
