2018 has been a rollercoaster ride for the Pakistan Film Industry with its hits and misses in terms of on-screen pairs. While Ali Zafar & Maya Ali were a fresh pairing, Fahad Mustafa & Mehwish Hayat are safe bets with each other much like SRK & Kajol.
As we embark in 2019, here’s a look at nine fresh on-screen pairs that we believe will set the screen on fire.
1. Fawad Khan – Mahira Khan
The much-loved pair of Fawad and Mahira Khan debuted together on the much-acclaimed show Humsafar, back in 2012. The duo became an instant hit and have been seen numerous times together either in advertisements, photoshoots or on the ramp. The only place left for them to be seen together was the silver screen.
Lo and behold, prayers were answered after both were signed to play the lead in The Legend of Maula Jatt. To watch Fawad play Maula Jatt and Mahira play his love interest, Makkho Jatti would be a treat for their fans.
2. Bilal Ashraf – Mahira Khan
‘Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan will make a stunning on-screen couple,’ exclaims producer Momina Duraid, who is casting these two in her next movie Superstar. The movie is known to be of a romantic genre and to have two good looking individuals as leads would make it a worthwhile watch.
3. Asad Siddiqui – Zara Noor Abbas
Husband-wife duo Asad and Zara will be seen together in Wajahat Rauf’s third film. Seeing a real-life couple come together on screen is always a delight to watch. The pair will be seen as parallel leads in the film, and apart from their confirmation, not much is known about the genre of the movie.
4. Sheheryar Munawar – Maya Ali
Sheheryar and Maya will be seen playing love interests in Asim Raza’s Parey Hut Love. Mahira Khan was first signed on to play the lead but due to some serious issues with dates, she could not commit to the project. The pair has been loved so much by the audience that they lovingly call them ‘Saniyar’.
5. Shaan Shahid – Kiran Malik
The superstar, Shaan Shahid, and model turned actress Kiran Malik will be seen together in Shaan’s much-awaited film Zarrar. They may be in their forties but surely their looks can give the young actors a run for their money.
As Shaan himself describes the film to be a new breed of a spy thriller action genre, it would be interesting to see how the chemistry of the lead actors unfolds.
6. Shamoon Abbasi – Sherry Shah
A rather unconventional pairing in Durj, Shamoon Abbasi essays the role of a cannibal who has a love interest played by Sherry Shah. Intriguing to say the least, Sherry Shah went bald and gained 40 pounds for her role in the film. The genre of the flick is said to action-thriller in which real-life incidents are highlighted that had taken place in Pakistan.
7. Farhan Saeed/Feroze Khan – Iman Ali/Sonya Hussayn
An exciting debut for acclaimed singer turned actor Farhan Saeed and model turned actress Iman Aly, romantic family drama Tich Button will also be a debut for Urwa and Farhan as producers of the movie. Feroze Khan and Sonya Hussayn will also be romantically linked in the movie.
8. Faysal Quraishi/ Zahid Ahmed – Aamina Sheikh/Faryal Mehmood
Sorry: A Love Story is a romantic drama, which showcases the ups and downs of love. The film boasts of a star-studded cast which includes Faysal Quraishi, Zahid Ahmed, Aamina Sheikh, and Faryal Mehmood.
It will be interesting to note who all is paired together and how the story will unfold.
9. Sami Khan – Ayesha Omar/Eshal Fayyaz
A trio love story, Kaaf Kangana will have Sami Khan, Ayesha Omar and Eshal Fayyaz play the leads. While Ayesha plays the role of a pure Lahori Punjabi kuri, model-turned-actress Eshal Fayyaz will be seen playing the character of an Indian girl, Kangana.
Ayesha falls in love with Sami who is already in love with Eshal and then there is another boy who is in love with Ayesha’s character. It will surely be an interesting watch, we must say!
