Aced actors Gohar Rasheed and Faryal Mahmood who have time and again proven their mettle on television, are now pairing up for a film together. Titled Lockdown, the film is based on the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown that has currently been implemented globally.
“I can’t talk much about the story, but the name kinda gives it away! It’s about a couple suffering through these times and how they overcome their struggles to be with each other in the end. Hope for all of us to ignite in ourselves and others!” said Faryal while talking to Images.
The actress also revealed that Lockdown will most likely become the first film to be released for online streaming as currently pitching it Netflix and Amazon Prime is both under consideration.
“It’s a love story with the backdrop of lockdown and the horrors of Covid-19. The whole world is experiencing it right now,” said Gohar while adding, “The story is very unique, it’s very relatable. The way it’s been written, the kind of treatment they’re doing, it’s never been done before.”
Directed by Abu Aleeha and scripted by Abida Ahmed, the Gohar Faryal starrer is currently in shooting spell. The release date for the film has not been announced as of yet.
