In the event of the trailer launch of Actor in Law, there was a question and answer session in which Fahad Mustafa, Nabeel Qureshi, Fizza Ali Meerza and Mehwish Hayat talked about the film.
There is a scene in the trailer where Fahad Mustafa’s character says something like, ‘‘Quaid-e-Azam bhi actor banna chahte thay.” The journalists present at the event found this to be a bit offensive. Fahad Mustafa responded by saying that it’s a film, and the line was part of its content. He said in films such things came up and he would like all to see it first. He assured the media that there’s nothing offensive about the film, so people should watch the film and support Pakistani cinema.
Nabeel Qureshi explained that the media had seen the trailer in a ‘scattered’ way so they didn’t know of its [line’s] background. He said he hadn’t included the line out of nowhere. He said it was based on facts and actually the idea for the film generated from it. He reiterated that the Quaid-i-Azam wanted to be an actor because when he went to London to study law, he had tried to do Shakespeare. He said the Quaid wrote this to his father in a letter, to which his father said he couldn’t betray his family. He said that made the Quaid into a great lawyer and he helped us gain independence.
Fahad Mustafa emphasized that this [project] was all entertainment.
