Heer Maan Ja stars the lovable pairing of talented theater actor Ali Rehman and the very pretty Hareem Farooq. After recently starring in a drama on silver screen, Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka, the two will be displaying their endearing chemistry on the big screen once again. We previously saw them in Parchi and caught a glimpse of them in Janaan.
Azfar Jafri the director of Heer Maan Ja opened up about the film’s casting and status. In an conversation with Epk, he revealed that Heer Maan Ja is a romantic comedy. They choose to produce this genre after extensive research. After gathering significant feedback, the makers decided that this is the kind of a movie which the audience wants. Heer Maan Ja will be in accordance to the liking of the masses.
The romcom is in post production now. Hareem Farooq and Ali Rehman will be playing very different roles in comparison to their previous roles.
We asked the director why did they choose to cast the two once again? The director replied that Hareem and Ali’s pairing has been coincidental. He said that Janaan only incorporated a short scene of Hareem and Ali towards the end, as it was hinting about an upcoming film which was to see them together i.e Parchi.
He said that looking at the kind of characters that they had created, they considered their options and eventually decided that Hareem and Ali were the right people to play their respective roles as they fitted these characters. Therefore, their pairing was coincidental.
The film is slated for release this Eid Ul Azha. So far the makers have only revealed the poster and we are looking forward to its trailer.
