After the success of Na Maloom Afraad, its sequel Na Maloom Afraad 2 started production. Having completed filming in Karachi, its shooting spell in Cape Town has also come to an end.
This is what we know so far,
The main cast, Fahad Mustafa, Urwa Hocane, Javed Sheikh and Mohsin Abbas Haider will be returning to the screen. Actor Nayyar Ejaz will be playing an Arab Sheikh in the sequel. Saleem Mairaj and Ashiq Ahmed will also be present in the film.
Mohsin shared his experience of shooting in Cape Town with HIP,
"It was actually my first experience of shooting in Cape Town and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Our crew consisted of locals, and they were extremely professional. I also feel my camaraderie with Fahad and Javed Sahab has grown this time around. The weather may have been very unpredictable, but it was all worth it. In fact, I didn’t feel like I was working at all."
"Hania was a new addition to the Na Maloom Afraad clan. Nabeel and Fizza felt a new actress opposite me would do wonders, considering how successful Kubra has become (laughs). But jokes apart, I think Hania is very talented and an amazing actress to share space with. She is supportive and punctual, something I truly appreciate and I hope people will enjoy our chemistry on-screen."
So Hania Amir will be playing the leading lady in the film. She told a local leading daily, "My character is more of a happy person, but then she's also serious about what she wants. She's a go-getter." She will be shown romantically involved with one of the main cast members, who is brought up in South Africa.
After countless weepy, victimized female characters, Hania's role should be a breath of fresh air. "You'll see how this girl goes after what she wants and what she believes in. In the script, you'll see a lot of comments bashing women in general 'larki ye nahi karsakti', that sort of thing. But then you see this woman's journey, you'll see how she's gone through everything and achieved what she wants or at least tried to", Hania spoke of her character.
After Actor in Law and Na Maloom Afraad, this will be the third film from Filmwala Entertainment's Fiza Ali and Nabeel Qureshi.
The film is set to release this Eid-ul-Azha.
