Balu Mahi (بلو ماہی) is an upcoming film scheduled to release on the Valentines Day weekend, Friday 10th February 2017.
It is the first film of the director Haissam Hussain who has many successful and acclaimed dramas to his name like Dastaan, Akbari Asghari, Aunn Zara, Aik Nayee Cinderella, Durr-e-Shahwar. Haissam Hussain’s actual first film was Bin Roye (2015) which he left after filming few scenes due to the differenes with its producer. His name was not given as director on the film Bin Roye so Balu Mahi is the first official film of Haissam Hussain.
Balu Mahi is also the first film of Saadia Jabbar as a producer. Saadia has also produced some famous and acclaimed dramas like Mera Naam Yousaf Hai. Most of the dramas produced by Saadia are aired on APlus.
Balu Mahi stars Usman Khalid Butt, Ainy Jaffri and Sadaf Kanwal in the lead roles. Sadaf Kanwal the famous model is doing film debut. It is the second film of Ainy Jaffri after Mein Hoon Shahid Afridi in 2013. Usman Khalid Butt who earlier did a cameo in Janaan (2016) is also appearing in the leading role for the very first time.
The teaser of the film is released today, which is a song by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan also shot on him. So it is perhaps the first Pakistani film where Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has done a cameo.
Here is the teaser of the song Rung De Chunnar composed by Sahir Ali Bagga. The song is shot at Hirran Minar near Sheikhupura.
