On the 13th September, 2016 we had the privilege of working at the premiere launch of the film Janaan in the o2 Arena. Since the movie came to London, it had already been announced as one of the top 10 films talked about within the UK!
Janaan, (Urdu for Beloved) was produced as a romantic comedy, set in Pakistan directed by Azfar Jafri, written by Osman Khalid Butt and co-produced by Imran Raza Kazmi, Hareem Farooq, Reham Khan and Munir Hussain. The music in the film is already popular with one of the songs sang by my favourite vocalist who has an outstanding voice, Sherya Ghoshal.
Although the film is based around romance and is written in a way which entertains, there are other themes within the story. Child abuse is just one aspect covered as well as the importance of education. Not only is this a heartfelt movie, but it also carries a strong social message to its viewers.
The actors and actresses did an amazing job entertaining the crowd with their flawless acting and wowed the fans with their gorgeous looks! The vote for best looking was between Bilal Ashraf who played Asfandyar Khan and Ali Rehman Khan who played Daniyal Khan. I think the winner was Bilal Ashraf as he played the shy, young handsome guy who the leading protagonist, Meena falls in love with.
We both had an amazing time covering the event and became good friends with co-producer, Imran Raza Kazmi! Another fellow Gemini like Emine 😉 While the film went on, we spoke for a while and got to know one another as well as his passion for creating films and how much effort went into creating Janaan.
It all paid off in the end as the premiere was an amazing turnout and the response was phenomenal! It is definitely a film worth seeing in cinema, so if you haven’t already, then go now and book your tickets!!
