Only a few weeks ago we heard the news that Mahira Khan would be starring in director Asim Raza’s upcoming venture, Paray Hut Love opposite Sheheryar Munawar. However, recent reports suggest that Maya Ali has been signed on for the film, which is a romantic coming-of-age comedy.
“Yes, the latest on Paray Hut Love is that Maya is playing the lead against Sheheryar,” director Asim Raza told Aamna Haider Isani of Instep. “Mahira is playing a very special part in the film,” he also confirmed.
Regarding the reason why Mahira will no longer play the lead, the director said, “Mahira was facing serious date issues.” Though, Mahira Khan will have a special role in PHL, Asim wants to keep it a big secret and didn’t disclose too much about her character.
Maya Ali, who can be seen in some major ad campaigns, such as Lux and Coke (both Asim Raza’s projects), shared, “How can anyone say no to Asim Raza, one of the best directors we have.”
She added, “It was like a dream come true when he offered me this film. I am glad to get this opportunity to work with Asim and I will try my best to deliver as per the director’s expectations. I’m looking forward to working with Sheheryar too.”
Paray Hut Love will mark Maya Ali’s second big banner film, while her debut film, Teefa in Trouble, alongside Ali Zafar, is slated to release on July 20, 2018.
