The makers of ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ – Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza don’t want any delay in the release of their upcoming project featuring Fahad Mustafa and Mahira Khan.
Speaking to Dawn Images, Qureshi and Meerza indicated the release of ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ sometime in December this year despite fewer screens across the country due to COVID-19 times.
“Yes, there may be less cinemas but that will be the case even next year. Why wait? I do think that people will come and see the movie,” said Meerza. “We released our first movie, Na Maloom Afraad, to limited screens back in 2014. We’ll just do it again,” confident producer said.
Qureshi is optimistic that people will come to the cinemas if they are going to restaurants and malls. “People are going to restaurants and malls. Why wouldn’t they go to the movies?” the director expressed hopes.
“We may have fewer screens now but if local content doesn’t release because of this, there will be even less screens by next year. We can’t let that happen,” Qureshi added.
The young filmmakers are looking forward to more projects in near future. “If we release Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad this year, then we will definitely make two more movies next year,” plans out Fizza.
“If we just had business in mind, we would have probably wanted to time our release for next year as well. But we’re very passionate about what we do. We have so many more stories to tell,” Qureshi was quoted saying.
It must be noted here that ‘Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad’ was scheduled to release this year’s Eid-ul-Adha but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If this film goes onto release, it would be the first film to release in COVID-19 times.
