The film is revolved around Mehrunisa, the female lead which has been played by debutant. “She triggers the change. She is the catalyst in the film,” told Sana while adding that the film is not just about her but every woman, and on a bigger scale, the whole country. “There are many symbolic things attached with the character and it is not just Mehrunisa, it is every women, it is Pakistan,” she added.
Danish informed that the idea of the film was clocked in Yasir Nawaz’s head when they were shooting Wrong No. in 2015 and that the former took a year and wrote seven drafts along with the writer to finalize the screenplay of the film.
“I play the role of a guy who is coming back to Pakistan after some years and considers himself Muhalley Ka Hero,” he told about his role in the film. “It is the most grand, most innovative and most meaningful film that I have been a part of in my career,” he added.
