Well, news is that after his successful shot at feature film-making (Khuda Ke Liye) Shoaib Mansoor is making, or intends to (or so the rumours float around) another film. If gossip-weavers are to be taken seriously, the cast of his film includes Mahira Khan, pop star Atif Aslam and model/actress Umaima. Some say Iman Ali also has a role to play in the movie, but it’s not dead certain. Is she in, is she notâ€¦ what the heck.
Shoaib Sahib is an intelligent man, rest assured. His efforts are never half-baked or meaningless. You always expect something out of the top drawer from him. However, casting individuals like Atif Aslam and Mahira Khan (as characters other than their real selves) raises a question on the actorsâ€™ list. Perhaps itâ€™s a reservation expressed way too soonâ€¦
