“In Pakistan, we need to make films that explore new genres while still being engaging for the audience. Superhero films are the equivalent of modern day mythologies, and can be a source for innovative stories. Working in feature films has been a long standing goal and I am working hard to create something unique.” shares Nadir Shah who has directed Project Ghazi.
“Most of the films being produced in Pakistan are Bollywood inspired rom-coms, I wanted to move away from that and produce a film in a genre largely ignored by the Pakistani cinema. I wanted to give our audiences a taste of films closer to Hollywood with Pakistani talent”, comments Syed Mohammed Ali Raza, Producer and co-writer of Project Ghazi.
Project Ghazi will be hitting cinema screens across Pakistan on 14th July, 2017, and is distributed by Distribution Club.
