Sarmad Sultan Khoosat has a lot up his sleeve; the actor-filmmaker recently announced two films that are scheduled to release in the coming months. While one of them is called Kamli that will star Saba Qamar in a lead role, the other one is titled Zindagi Tamasha (Circle of Life) that the director recently wrapped up.
However, prior to the release of Zindagi Tamasha in Pakistan, the film - Sarmad’s first-ever Punjabi feature film - is all set to screen next month at the Busan International Film Festival that is held annually in Haeundae-gu, Busan, South Korea.
Sarmad has started to share a few looks from the upcoming film that features Arif Hasan, Samiya Mumtaz, Eman Suleiman and Ali Kureishi in key roles.
The first character poster released earlier this week features Samiya Mumtaz as Farkhanda who is described in these words: “Years of ill-health have made a withdrawn person out of Farkhanda with cheeky humor managing to break through every once in a while. She is now the quiet spectator of the events that unfold in lives of those around her.”
This was followed by the introduction of another character, named Rahat, essayed by Arif Hasan. The post reads: “Rahat is a naatkhawan and enjoys a celebrity status amongst the community in the old city of Lahore. He is a devout Muslim, who, in the eyes of everyone is a superhuman incapable of any sacrilege. Hence, when he does wrong there is no forgiveness for him.”
The first film to release under the banner of Khoosat Films, Zindagi Tamasha has been cleared by all three censor boards and is all set to release later this year.
