Sikander Rizvi, grandson of the legendary singing sensation Madam Noor Jehan and brother of actress Sonya Jehan (who debuted in Karan Johar’s ‘My Name Is Khan’) will make his big screen debut opposite screen sensation Humaima Malick.
The film titled ‘Dekh Magar Pyaar Say’ being directed by the noted Pakistani ad film-maker Asad-ul Haq is under production in Lahore and is expected to release later this year in India & Pakistan simultaneously, among other global markets.
A successful television actress, Humaima shot to larger fame with Shoaib Mansoor’s critically acclaimed ‘Bol’ in which she was paired opposite Atif Aslam. She made her Bollywood debut opposite Emraan Hashmi in UTV-Disney and Kunal Deshmukh’s caper, ‘Raja Natwarlal’.
Sikander Rizvi is being tipped as a Fawad Khan-in-the-making, for his drop-dead good looks, and has been voted by the Pakistani media as the country’s most eligible bachelor.
The main protagonists’ journey of love is humorously chartered through the romantic city of Lahore. DMPS is a romantic comedy, a genre not recently explored by Pakistani auteurs.
The hot first-time pairing of Humaima Malick and Sikander Rizvi is keenly anticipated.
The script has been penned by writer and journalist Saba Imtiaz, who recently released her debut novel, ‘Karachi, You’re Killing Me!’
BAFTA winning Director of Photography, Nicholas D. Knowland [aka Nic Knowland] of Jinnah fame is the film’s DoP.
Comments Asad-ul-Haq, “Dekh Magar Pyaar Say is based in the cultural capital of Pakistan and will be featuring a brand new outlook on the traditional romantic movie, one that is filled with twists, turns, surprises and everything in between, all the while debunking established clichés associated with the romance genre.”
