Shah (شاہ) is an upcoming film scheduled to release on 14th August 2015. “SHAH” is based on the incredible true story of Olympian Boxer Syed Hussain Shah. Long time forgotten Syed Hussain Shah hails from Layari, an impoverished sub district of Karachi. In the past Layari was known for its boxers and footballers but in recent times its name is associated with crime and gang wars. Ethnic Baloch form the majority in Layari and it is the only stronghold of Pakistani Peoples Party in the city of Karachi.
From a homeless child who slept on a footpath in Karachi to Olympic glory – Hussain Shah became the only Pakistani in history and the first South Asian to win a Bronze Medal in Olympics Boxing at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. Traditionally Hockey has been the main sports for Pakistan in the Olympics, however in 1988 Pakistani Hockey team presented below average performance and failed to qualify for the semi final securing fifth position overall. In 1988, Syed Hussain Shah emerged as a surprise winner when Hockey team failed to meet the expectations.
