Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry recently took to Twitter to announce the telecast of Karakoram Highway — Where Men and Mountains Meet. The documentary will air on PTV and is meant “to honour and recall the historical predicament” of constructing the Karakoram Highway.

He shared the poster on Twitter and announced that PTV will telecast the documentary on January 1 at 11:05am. The minister called the documentary a “tribute to our heroes”.



Directed by Zohaib Pervaiz, the documentary has been made by Delirium Productions in association with the Frontier Works Organisation.

“Karakoram Highway (KKH) — a 1300km long highway — [is] a mammoth project which is often regarded as the 8th wonder of the world. It is the emblem of Pak-China friendship, also known as the ‘Friendship Highway’,” states the official description. “This herculean task witnessed numerous sacrifices, so much so that a famous proverb ‘a life lost every kilometre of the road’ came into being.”

The ISPR DG’s official Facebook account also shared the trailer and details about the documentary. According to the ISPR, it was due to be released on December 18.

The trailer for the film features the Karakoram Mountains and interviews with several men, including Urdu writer Mustansar Hussain Tarrar.
