President HUM Network Sultana Siddiqui said, "We are excited to partner with Big Films for the release of feature film Bachaana under Hum Films banner. HUM Network has always supported new talent and we have great expectations from Nasir and Rizwan. It's a delight to release Sanam Saeed and MohibMirza's feature film as we consider them an integral part of HUM Family.
Siddiqui emphasized that the whole industry should support Pakistani productions.
"I hope the audience will enjoy the movie and will keep supporting Pakistani productions. I also request our press and cinema owners to keep encouraging local productions as they have been bearing fruit in last few months. It's an exciting time for people in the film making business and we hope to bring more films with a Pakistani identity in the future. Best of luck to the entire team of Bachaana!"
Bachaana is the first feature film of Nasir Khan as a director. Khan gained prominence after his documentary Made in Pakistan was presented at the Mumbai International Film Festival. With the cast and crew from both Pakistan and India, meeting each other for the first time on the set, the film truly captures cross-border relationships on and off screen.
Filmed in Mauritius, the production team conducted an intensive talent hunt to find actors in the neutral venue. With eye-catching scenery, music composed by top Pakistani talent, and a new take on Indo-Pak relations, the movie will surely cause a stir.
