While the fate of Verna’s release in Pakistan is still unclear, there are multiple local films that are lined up for release later this year. On one hand is Shaan Shahid’s musical, Arth that features the star alongside Mohib Mirza, Humaima Malick and Uzma Hassan and comes out on December 21 while Gohar Rasheed, Bilal Ashraf and Urwa Hocane starrer Rangreza is also expected to release on the same day. Another addition to the list is Ahsan Khan-starrer action comedy, Chupan Chupai that will hit cinemas on December 29 and features Neelam Muneer opposite Khan.
Directed by Mohsin Ali, Chupan Chupai is a light hearted comedy of errors in which Khan essays the role of Babu, a boy from Karachi. “It’s a story from the streets in which the guy tries to sort things out but the situation takes a completely different turn,” the actor shared with Instep in an earlier interview.
