Saqib Malik’s highly anticipated directorial debut film, titled Baaji is all set to release mid-2019. Starring Meera in a career-defining title role the film has been written by Irfan Ahmed Urfi and Saqib himself.
Baaji, a social drama-cum-thriller set against the backdrop of a fading Lollywood and the emerging new order of the Pakistan film industry, promises to be a film with a difference.
Despite being a film that is a tribute to the interesting story and character oriented classics of Pakistani cinema of the seventies, Baaji will be very contemporary in its tone and execution.
Other than Meera, the cast also includes Amna Ilyas, Osman Khalid Butt, Mohsin Abbas Haider and Ali Kazmi in pivotal roles.
Lollywood star Nisho will also be seen in a strong supporting role, along with Nayyar Ejaz.
Zeb Bangash, Jamal Rahman, Taha Malik and the legendary maestro of Pakistani cinema, Taffoo will be contributing to the music of the film.
