Naumaan Ijaz is one actor who can play any character with ease and keep the audience engaged. His dedication and excellence towards his work make him an inspiration for all in the industry. While we love watching him in dramas, we know watching him on the big screen will be even better. Oh and guess what? We will actually be seeing him in a movie real soon!
He has signed the movie titled 'Maidaan' which is being produced by actor Gohar Rasheed and Waqas Rizvi under the Shuffler Films banner.
Naumaan earlier appeared in Mehreen Jabbar's movie Ramchand Pakistani back in 2008. Excited to find out about this comeback project, we contacted him to confirm the news of him signing Maidaan and here is what he told us,
‘It’s a very interesting story as it is based on true events, but I am still waiting to read the draft, then let’s see when the shooting for it begins”.
Maidaan is based on the street children, who hail from poverty-stricken areas of Pakistan. They came together to take part in the ‘2014 Street Child World Cup’ held in Brazil and the story revolves around real life characters and their struggle to make it to the international platform.
In an earlier conversation with HIP, the actor and producer Gohar Rasheed said,
“Movies like Maidaan, with stirring storylines, should be brought to the cinema as they end up motivating the audience. The stories of these children will make people realise that nothing is impossible.”
With Naumaan Ijaz on board, we are sure he will add value to the movie and make it worth watching. Plus, let’s face it, as much as we enjoy masala movies, it is films like Maidaan which leave a positive impact on the audiences and encourages them to never give up on their dreams.
The movie is expected to release sometime this year and is scheduled to be shot in three different countries namely Pakistan, Europe, and Brazil.
