Keeping up our tradition of giving out exclusive news, we have an exciting one for you that we have recently stumbled upon!
While there have been many films and TV series based on Pakistan, makers often opted for a set or alternate location instead of original location for its shoot. However there have been some Hollywood films that were shot in Pakistan back in the day as well. These include films back from 60s’ 70s’ time like K2, Bhowani Junction and a few others.

The good news is another Hollywood project is making its way to Pakistan. As per sources, a US television network AMC is planning a project to be shot in Pakistan. The network is behind mega successes like Breaking Bad and Walking Dead.
Sources have also revealed that the network has locked in multi-talented Hollywood actor (of Pakistani origin) Faran Tahir, who has roles like, “Raza” in Iron Man and “Captain Robau” in Star Trek ,to his name. Faran Tahir had also performed at a theater play “Bhai Bhai” earlier this year in Pakistan along with his brother Ali Tahir as well.
Moreover the network is also in talks with few other Pakistani actors for a possible role. One of them as per our sources is confirmed and few are negotiating at the moment. The nature of the project is ambiguous but it is highly probable that it is a film. Epk reached out to Faran Tahir for a comment however no official confirmation has been received from his end!
Our sources have confirmed that Faran will be in Pakistan in December. Sources have also revealed that Lahore and its outskirts are being considered for shooting and the project is set to go on floors in December as well. We can’t go into the specifics of the project as we have yet to get official confirmation from the makers of the said project.
This project will be an encouraging example for more foreign film makers and will enable them to show the real picture. We are excited that this film will not only give opportunities to Pakistani talent but also technicians to work with the foreign crews.
