Khalil ul Rehman Qamar is a distinguished writer who has written several popular drama serials that we truly adore. More recently, Khalil ul Rehman wrote the script of the blockbuster film Main punjab nai jaon gi. He is currently working on his next film Kaaf Kangana. This film will be written, directed and produced by the man himself. Kaaf Kangana is expected to be released next year.
However Kaaf Kagana has met with a lot of controversies as Khalil ul Rehman has already replaced the leading lady of the film twice now. The film now stars Eshal Fayyaz, a relatively new face.
In a conversation, Khalil ul Rehman told us that he was immensely disappointed with the previous female lead Urwa Hocane and therefore decided to replace her. He was also disappointed with the tantrums well established celebrities generally tend to throw and therefore wanted to cast a new girl. He further added that he believes in working with people who are fully committed, hardworking and sincere with the work that they do. The film originally had Sohai Ali Abro in the lead who was replaced with Urwa Hocane. However, Khalil ul Rehman claimed that he had the worst experience working with the actress, Urwa Hocane.
Watch his full interview below:
The director was later given two suggestions for the recast of the main lead. Out of the two, he decided to go with Eshal. Upon contacting her, he was pleased to hear how committed and willing Eshal was to do this film. He instantly flew her over and got started.
Eshal fayyaz was intimidated by the well known writer and director however she soon overcame her fear. She admitted that she was not able to give her best initially however after Khalil ul Rehman’s assurance and encouragement, Eshal managed to impress the director.
Eshal is starring opposite Sami Khan who was also very taken by her performance and appreciated her. Eshal also added how thrilled she was to get this opportunity. Her experience of working with Sami has been great. She also mentioned how particular Khalil Qamar is regarding the dialogues. During a shoot if she even missed a word he would point that out and ask her to stick to the script.
The cast seems to be doing very well now. We have high hopes for Kaaf Kangana. Let’s see what the film has to offer!
