“I’m playing one of the 16 pilots in Parwaaz Hai Junoon, it’s one of the main roles in that track,” Shaz Khan, who hails from an Air Force background told Instep. “My grandfather was an air commodore and my uncle also holds one of the senior positions in the Air Force, so this was a project I couldn’t say no to. It’s a grand story and a pretty big production.”

He also informed that he was cast in the film months back but no official announcement had been made on that due to some issues. He will begin shooting his part in the coming days.

Starring Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ahad Raza Mir and Hania Amir in lead roles, Parwaaz Hai Junoon is directed by Haseeb Hassan and is based on Pakistan’s Air Force. The film will go on floors soon.
