Update: The article previously mentioned the film title to be ‘Mein Manto,’ whereas the actual title of the film is ‘Manto’ and it has been corrected in the article. ‘Mein Manto’ is the title of an upcoming TV serial, produced as an extension to the same project, which will follow the film after its release.
