Pakistani-Canadian actor Ali Kazmi, who is one of the protagonists in Mehreen Jabbar’s upcoming film, Dobara Phir Se alongside Adeel Hussain, Hareem Farooq and Sanam Saeed, is all set to play an antagonist in his next. Tentatively titled Na Band Na Baraati, the film is a romantic comedy and is expected to release in February 2017.
“I am playing the antagonist in the film,” Kazmi told Instep in a brief conversation. “My role is that of a crazy mechanic who has a strong influence on others’ life,” he said.
As far as the plot of the film goes, it is a light hearted comedy based on two brothers, played by Mikaal Zulfiqar and Shayan Khan. “Na Band Na Baraati is a fast, fun ride; there are crazy comedic episodes as well as romance,” Kazmi explained.
Aside from Kazmi, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Shayan Khan, Na Band Na Baraati will also feature new entrants Nayab Khan and Anzhelika Tahir in prominent roles alongside veteran actors Atiqa Odho, Mehmood Akhtar and Qavi Khan.
The film has been shot in Canada. Three-fourth of the film has already been shot and Kazmi recently returned from Canada after shooting his part for the film. These days, the actor is in Pakistan and is busy shooting for a drama serial, which will air soon.
