Danish Taimoor is on a roll.
You may have missed seeing this hottie on the silver screen, for his last film ‘Wrong Number’ came out in 2015. But worry not, as he is all set to come back with a bang and feature in three films this year. You already know about Sangeeta Jee’s ‘Tum Hi To Ho’ and Yasir Nawaz’s ‘ Mehrunnisa V Lub You’ and joining these two biggies is Javed Sheikh’s directorial venture ‘Wajood’. Yes, this is the same ambitious film which Javed Sheikh first announced back in 2015 as his comeback to direction.
There was a press event yesterday in Karachi where the cast of the film was announced which includes Danish Taimoor, Saeeda Imtiaz, Aditi Singh (Telugu film star) in leading roles. The ensemble cast also features Ali Saleem, Frieha Altaf, Faiza Khan, Asad Mehmood, Shaheen Khan and of course the trio of Nadeem Baig, Shahid and Javed Sheikh. Seeing the three veterans together on stage was definitely one of the highlights of the event, more so since Shahid hasn’t been seen in a film for a long time and is making a comeback of sorts.
To know more about the film we contacted Danish and he told us that it’s a romantic thriller which revolves around the trio of Danish, Saeeda, and Aditi and that he is playing a pilot in the film. While we know of Saeeda we were curious to get more information about Aditi and Danish told us she has worked in Telugu films and it’s her first Pakistani film. Given the India-Pakistan tension how they would manage to shoot with an Indian star was the obvious question on our mind. To this Danish replied that her portions will be shot outside Pakistan and that it would not be a hassle.
Danish also told us how he was super excited to be working in a Javed Sheikh directorial and that this film will be definitely one to watch out for. On a final note, Danish revealed that the shooting is starting this February and that they are targeting an Eid-ul-Azha release for the film.
Given how Javed Sheikh has always changed the game when he has taken to the director’s chair, we are definitely super excited for this film. Here’s wishing him, Danish Taimoor and team Wajood all the best!
