While cine-goers yet again didn’t get the chance to watch new Pakistani films on Eid ul Azha, filmmaker Nabeel Qureshi gave a treat to film lovers this Eid when he released the first look of his upcoming film Khel Khel Mein. 

Starring the charismatic pair of Sajal Aly and Bilal Abbas Khan, last seen and loved in drama serial O Rangreza, Khel Khel Mein is directed by Nabeel Qureshi and produced by his partner, Fizza Ali Meerza, under the banner of Filmwala Pictures.

“If history was taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten,” says the caption of Nabeel’s Instagram post in which we can see silhouettes of several soldiers and then the lead pair as well as other actors.

Though much has not been revealed about the film but Nabeel Qureshi has earlier shared in an Instagram Q&A session with his followers that the genre of this film is something different from his previous movies. It is  “drama/historical” and now he has used hashtag 1971 in the caption of the motion poster. This might be a hint that the film’s story has got something to do with East Pakistan, fall of Dacca or Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.

Sajal has made her film debut alongside Feroze Khan in Anjum Shahzad’s directorial Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay which wasn’t a big success, however she has garnered immense praise for her Bollywood debut, Mom. Sajal is also a part of Jemima Khan’s What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Similarly, Bilal Abbas Khan also previously appeared in a film — Thora Jee Le (2017) — which wasn’t noticed. Bilal recently starred in Mehreen Jabbar’s web series, Ek Jhoothi Love Story. The two actors have established themselves in the top tier with their phenomenal performances on television.

Nabeel and Fizza are already waiting to release Fahad Mustafa and Mahira Khan starrer Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. The duo have also been working on Fatman featuring Ahmed Ali Butt and another web series on Lyari gang war. With all these releases in pipeline, it seems that the two have made the most of the pandemic and worked on many scripts. So, 2021 and the upcoming years are going to be full of entertainment!
