Mahesh Bhatt to shoot Hindu-Muslim love story in Lahore
Bollywood film maker Mahesh Bhatt is all set to shoot an entire Bollywood film in Lahore, the cultural capital of Pakistan.
The romantic saga, a Hindu-Muslim love story, will star Pakistani pop siger Noumad opposite an Indian debutante actress who is yet to be finalised. The untitled film will be directed by Mohit Suri who had earlier helmed “Awaarapan”
This film deals with a pre-partition story of intense love between two culturally divergent individuals during times of abject hatred. It is the story of a Muslim man who saves the Hindu woman from his own people and gives up his life in protecting her.
This would be the first Bollywood film to be shot entirely in Pakistan.
“We’re introducing a new star from Pakistan and a completely new girl from Bharat (India). The Pakistani boy is Noumad, a singing sensation in his country,” said the filmmaker who has worked with quite a few Pakistani artists, including actress Meera in “Zeher”.
