‘Bol’ is likely to be released after the Cricket World Cup

March 10, 2011

Shoaib Mansoor‘s ‘Bol’ which was supposed to be released last year and then early this year, was delayed to settle matters related to distribution. But now, the much-awaited film by the ace director Shoaib Mansoor, is likely to be released after the cricket world cup hysteria simmers down i.e it is now likely to hit cinemas in mid April, 2011. It was cleared by the Film Censor Board in November last year.

The cast of the film comprises Humaima Malick, Atif Aslam, Iman Ali, Mahira Khan, Shafqat Cheema, Manzar Sehbai, Zaib Rehman, Amr Kashmiri and Sagar. Several students from the National College of Arts (NCA) filmmaking department have assisted Shoaib Mansoor in the film.

The Express Tribune spoke to the actors regarding their experience and the delay of the release. Atif Aslam, who plays the character of a doctor wanting to become a musician in the film, said:

“I am doing a lot of work and am not really relying as an actor on this film. I did this film because I wanted to do a film and didn’t want to play the ‘chocolate hero’. Bol gave me the opportunity to be a part of something substantial. I think it is for the director to decide how and when the film is to be released”.

Mahira Khan, who makes her debut with this film, said:

“It was truly a learning experience for me, Shoaib saab is an institution in himself, we all are waiting for Bol; and I hope it brings great business to the cinemas”.
