Mikaal Zulfiqar’s Sherdil to release across Russia in 2020

Pakistani films are certainly making a mark worldwide. Not only do we have our films premiering at major film festivals around the globe, we have a number of our projects winning international accolades as well. And if that isn’t enough, Pakistani films are tapping international markets as well with their releases. UK, USA, Canada and the UAE have now become a hub for Pakistani films. And it seems like, our filmmakers are now intent on adding Russia to the list as well.

After Teefa in Trouble screened at a film festival in Russia, its now the turn of Mikaal Zulfiqar starrer Sherdil. Sherdil recently screened at the Moscow Film Festival in Russia and now, according to EPK and producer Noman Khan, the film, is all set to release commercially in the country.

“We usually don’t come to Russia considering it an unknown land but people here are quite hungry for entertainment,” stated producer Noman Khan adding that Russian footfall attributed to about 50% once the first week of the film was over.

According to news, the producers and distributors of Sherdil, are eyeing the first half of 2020 for the film’s release in Russia. Noman Khan shared with EPK that he had already spoken to sponsors and the General Council in Russia and was aiming at a February release for Sherdil in the country.

It will be a great thing if we can release Pakistani films in Russia. I am glad this is being well received here in Russia and the people of Pakistan as well. More filmmakers should come here, shared Noman.

Starring Mikaal Zulfiqar, Armeena Khan, Sabeeka Imam and Hassan Niazi in pivotal roles, Sherdil, directed by Azfar Jafri, released under the banner of NK Pictures and ARY Films all over. The film’s release timed well with the Balakot airstrike incident between India and Pakistan when PAF pilots had shot down two Indian airplanes in the country’s territory. The incident gave the film added advantage and it soared on to become one of the highest grossers for the year.
