Hamza Ali Abbasi, who is also playing Noori Nath in Bilal Lashari’s remake of Maula Jatt, is reported to get in shape for the film.
5- Hania Aamir is the female lead
We knew about the leading men of the film since the announcement of the film but the leading lady was kept in the shrouds of mystery until now. The news is that the chirpy and super cute Palwasha of Janaan, Hania Aamir, has bagged the lead role in ‘Parwaaz Hay Junoon’ opposite Hamza Ali Abbasi and Osman Khalid Butt.
The film will be the debut of 19 year old Hania Aamir, who got into fame with her dubsmash videos on the social media and eventually landed into the films, as the leading lady opposite the towering stars.
We hope that we have tempted you enough about the project. Keep looking this space for more updates on the film.
