Our stories are more realistic than Bollywood’s larger than life stories: Director Asim Raza
Pakistani director and producer Asim Raza is all set to captivate audiences with his upcoming flick Ho Mann Jahaan. He had earlier stated that when he had set about to make Ho Mann Jahaan, Asim Raza had envisioned each and every role for a certain, specific actor. That’s how much of a perfectionist the Pakistani director is, when it comes to making movies.
He was asked as to how he set out to make the film, to which he replied:-
“Ho Mann Jahaan details the experience of youngsters adhering to society approved standards rather their own will. So today when I got the chance to make a film, I immediately started with this idea.”
He also went on to further stated that Ho Mann Jahaan will be different from other Pakistani films in the sense that it would cater more to human emotions, which would form the gist of the movie’s message. Raza also said that he felt that audience will connect with his movie on an emotional basis.
“Human emotions are for sure going to be the main highlight of my movie. I am a firm believer that emotions add a lot of value to our lives. Ho Mann Jahaan is a story of emotions and I am sure that the audience will connect to my movie on the basis of those emotions,” he said.
Asim Raza also had plenty to say about the fact that how Pakistani movies, which were more reality-based as compared to Bollywood films, had an edge over them.
“One of the reasons could be that our stories are quite different than Bollywood’s larger than life stories. They are more realistic and often picked from within the society we live in. I think it’s an added advantage and it may be the reason our dramas have become so popular in India because people find it realistic enough to believe.”
Ho Mann Jahaan is to be released on 1st January 2016. The movie has already generated quite a lot of buzz and is very much likely to rake in huge bucks at the box office. With Mahira Khan, Adeel Hussain, and Shehreyar Munawar in leading roles as three friends who are out to discover their choices on a musical journey, the movie is bound to be a hit.
