Another youth based rom-com Maan Jao Naa is in making and have the right reasons to be excited for it. The film, with the lineup of young and fresh cast and a surprise international star, is being made by Crew Motion Pictures, the makers of critically acclaimed Dukhtar (2014).
The script of Maan Jao Naa is co-written by Asma Nabeel and Ahsan Raza Firdousi. The film is directed by Abis Raza and produced by Muhammad Khalid Ali.
The film’s cast includes young stars Adeel Chaudary, Hajra Yamin, Ayaz Samoo and Ghana Ali and veterans Asif Raza Mir and Asma Abbas. One of the female leads, whose name is kept under wraps for now, is an international artist who has also worked in Bollywood (any guess guys?).
We spoke with Asma Nabeel, COO/Head of Films, Crew Motions Pictures, about the project and surprise cast member. She refused to give deets on the lady but promised “it will be a pleasant surprise”. She also shared that “a fresh wave is all set to hit the silver screen.” (excited?)
Asma Nabeel is an eminent name of the marketing and advertisement world in Pakistan. After making a dent there and bagging several accolades, including Femina Unstoppable Woman by Femina Middle East and Pond’s Miracle Woman to name a few, the multi-talented Asma is focusing on writing scripts for TV and cinema these days in addition to spearheading the film division of Crew Motion Pictures.
On experience of working with the young cast in Maan Jao Naa, Asma shared, “I am very happy to have the young talent with us. They are dedicated, hardworking and the viewers can see the hard work on the screen and they will love them too. The industry needs fresh blood and it’s extremely important that we as film makers welcome the young talent.”
