Shooting has started for ISPR’s Lt-Gen Nigar Jauhar biopic starring Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf. The movie heralds the life and career of Pakistan’ first female three-star general. It will be a telefilm that will air on ARY Digital.
Mahira Khan has started shooting at Army Medical College in Rawalpindi.
Mahira posted a short teaser, rather a first look of this high-profile telefilm with a note saying, “Honoured to be able to play a woman I admire so much. Pakistan Army’s first female three-star General. ‘Aik Hai Nigar’ traces the life and career of Lieutenant General Nigar Johar.”
The telefilm is being made for ARY Digital. It has been written by Umera Ahmed and directed by Adnan Sarwar. Mahira Khan and Nina Kashif are producing the film under the banner of their production house Soul Fry Films.
Apart from Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf, the telefilm also stars Khushal Khan, Sohail Sameer, Sara, and Iman Shahid.
Hailing from Swat, Nigar Johar is the first and the only woman in the Pakistan Army to have become a three-star general (Lieutenant-General).
Although, staring in such an important and touchy biopic Mahira must have grasped and rehearsed the character at her best but sources close to the “Raees” star disclosed that she is enthusiastic enough, and eagerly waiting for the completion of this project,
Sajjad Ali’s homecoming
From the mischievous ‘Chief Saab’ to ‘Sahil Per Khare ho’, Sajjad Ali is all
time favourite of music lovers. He moved from Pakistan to UAE at his carrier peak and after spending almost two decades there. The news is that Sajjad Ali has moved back to his homeland but this time he is settling down at Lahore instead of Karachi.
The credit for this development goes to Sajjad’s lovely daughter Zaw Aly who was responsible of bringing her parents over.
Sajjad is not only planning new musical projects but the doors of his Lahore residence are wide open to his friends from Karachi. Nadeem Jafri and Tehmeena Khaled recently enjoyed Sajjad’s hospitality in Lahore. A warm welcome with wide open arms and delicious food might not be a big deal for guests but melodious company of Sajjad Ali must be a treat to remember.
Sajjad is an ocean of knowledge and talent, combining a noncontroversial celebrity but rumours are rumours, and those who trade in this commodity did not spare even someone like Sajjad Ali. An unconfirmed news was circulating on social media last year that he is going marry leading actress and host of Pakistan TV industry Fiza Ali.
Fiza could not remain silent on the rumours and shared a video on her Instagram account in which she openly expressed anger over the mischievous item, saying, “Sajjad Ali is like my brothers, he is my teacher, he is the capital of Pakistan.”
Rumours apart, news is also that Sajjad is all set to launch some amazing music projects not only in Lahore but also in Karachi where an entertainment channel is planning something big with the maestro. Best of luck Sajjad Ali and welcome back home!
