It was quite expected from the time when Hamza Ali Abbasi denied to promote his film Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (JPNA), that he won’t be doing the sequel, if planned. The film came out as one of the biggest blockbusters in Pakistani cinema, which led the team to go for the sequel. The latest reports are that JPNA team has decided to start shooting JPNA 2 from March this year with none other than Fahad Mustafa replacing Hamza Ali Abbasi.
Last year, Mustafa appeared in two lead roles on big screen. Anjum Shehzad’s critically acclaimed Mah e Mir did not collect much on box office but Mustafa, who played the main role, received a lot appreciation. His next Actor in Law was a blockbuster. The actor is now working on three projects this year including JPNA 2.
JPNA writer Vasay Chaudhry broke the news on his Instagram. “So this is how #JPNA2 would kinda look like,” Chaudhry welcomed Mustafa.
Earlier this month, Mustafa was called in Dubai to host the historic opening ceremony of Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 2.
Hamza Ali Abbasi might not be appearing in the sequel of JPNA but is doing at least two lead roles this year. He will be starring with Hania Amir and Ahad Raza Mir Bilal in ‘Parwaaz Hay Junoon,’ which is tribute to Pakistan Air Force and with Fawad Khan in Bilal Lashari’s next which is yet to be titled.
