The film is nearing its release and posters (hence characters) have come out on social media, but Ali Kazmi was nowhere to be seen. We got hold of the actor to unfold the mystery.
“Since I am based in Canada, the film had to be shot here as well. Unfortunately, the makers were having trouble getting the permission for the shoot, and the project had already been delayed a bit, so they had to make some changes in the script due to which I couldn’t be a part of the film,” Kazmi shared with HIP..
He had indeed been looking forward to the film since it was a complete package.
“It was an interesting project and I was quite excited for it, but I guess you win some and you lose some; it’s all part of the game.”
For now, the actor is shooting for Taken - the television series being shot in Canada, whereas his Pakistani film, Dobara Phir Se, is expected to hit the cinemas in November.
