Sarmad Khoosat sent out his latest tweet followed by an open letter to the prime minister that he wrote three days back over hurdles being created in the release of his upcoming film “Zindagi Tamasha”.
Khoosat explained the plot once again saying that the film doesn’t contain objectionable content and it has already been cleared by the censor authorities, however, he avoided naming the individuals threatening him to stop releasing the film.
Written by Nirmal Bano, Zindagi Tamasha has been directed and co-produced by Sarmad along with his sister Kanwal Khoosat.
Film features model turned actress Eman Suleman, Samiya Mumtaz, Arif Hasan and Ali Qureshi in lead roles, while Sarmad himself has made a special appearance.
