Mumbai, Apr 18 (ANI): Premier of Pakistani film Salakhain was held here on Friday.

Salakhain directed Shahzad is an urdu film set in Lahore. It is a hardcore revenge saga that portrays the story of a young man who is passionate about life and dreams of a bright and prosperous future.

How he plots revenge and gets even with his enemies forms the crux of the film’s story.

Released in 2004 in Pakistan, the film introduced Ahmad, one of Pakistan’s most sought after model and winner of Lux Style Awards 2003 for Best Model, in the lead role. A thriller that ran for one year in Lahore, Salakhain stars Meera as the leading lady.

Meera expressed the hope that the film would succeed with the same elan that it did in Pakistan.

“Basically the film has an action oriented subject. It is a male dominated film in which there are two heroines, me and my co-star Zara. There is action, drama and emotions in the film. In Pakistan it has been a box office success and hopefully the people of India will also enjoy this movie,” said Meera.

Salakhain produced by Rashid Khawaja, stars Meera, Zara Sheikh, Ahmad, Sajid Hassan, Shafi Asghar and Farooq Zamir, besides many other actors from Pakistan’s television, film and theatre world.

The film’s background music has been composed in India and includes songs by Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Kumar Sanu, Shabnam Majeed, Naghmana Jaffri and Zil-e Humma.

Khuda ke Liye (In The Name of God) was the first Pakistani film to be officially released in India.

‘Salakhain’ is the second Pakistani film to be released in India. However, this time around, the film is not issue based but is instead a hardcore commercial revenge saga.

Bollywood actor Ravi Behl felt that there should be more cross border film exchanges.
“If the culture of the two countries mingle creatively one can express across borders. Creativity is creativity, there is nothing bad in sharing our values; you can share your ideology and your own ideas. So I hope this is a start to something very good,” said Ravi. (ANI)
