As soon as the teaser came out, first thought of many viewers was “Who is Ishrat ?” Well let us take you back in time and remind you about who this particular character is!
Ishrat baji was a character played by Mohib Mirza in a sitcom that aired on Aag TV back in 2000s. It was quite a funny character however linking of that character here with an action comedy seems a little strange.
Mohib had hinted on reprising the role in a video back in March! Back then it was assumed that he will making a web series however as it has been revealed now he is coming back in a film!
Considering it is an action film we hope to see more qualities given to Ishrat Baji!

Fans loved this avatar and many have reacted with a sigh of relief to the news that he is back and that too on a bigger screen!
