Heer Maan Ja is the only comedy film in the mix in the upcoming Eid releases. Heer Maan Ja is essentially about these two different people with some similarities who cross paths again. We get this much from the trailer and one thing that stands out is the character of Heer.
I caught up with Hareem Farooq who not only plays Heer but is also the co-producer of Heer Maan Ja. Hareem was very excited yet composed despite the rigorous promotions spell that the team is going through. Before I could dive into anything else I wanted to fish for some details regarding the characters in hopes to find out what to expect from this dynamic duo this time around!
“Heer belongs to a feudal family she knows how to be happy, very innocent but at the same time and very lively. She love to be mischievous but something happens in her life that changes a lot of things in her life.She enters back into Kabir’s life. Kabir on the other hand is a very ambitious man who, he is very career oriented he is someone who has lost many relationships due to his career.Maybe realization hits him later that he has lost a lot and whether he repents or stays with that is something you will find out. There is very less that I can reveal about the film.
The best thing about Heer?
The best thing about Heer is her relationship with her father. That is inspired by my own relationship with my father.It is one of the best things I like about the character.
The title of the film is interesting what is the story behind it?
Heer Maan Ja is derived from Heer Ranjha. The reason we named it Heer is because it is a story of a very innocent love but in a very light sweet manner. Heer Ranjha in Pakistan is the epitome of love this is the modern day version of that a more innocent version. So this is Heer and Kabir. And Heer is displeased due to some reason and throughout the film we will see people trying to make up for that.
Hareem is also a co-producer of Heer Maan Ja so that came up during our conversation as well. We also talked about her on screen chemistry with Ali Rehman Khan which is great. There is more from the interview coming soon. Heer Maan Ja is releasing this Eid ul Azha and like she termed it an “entertainer” so be sure to check it out!
