Shamoon Abbasi will play RAW Agent Kulbushan Yadav in ‘Dhai Chaal’
Where Shamoon Abbasi’s ‘Durj’ is getting rave reviews from the critics and the audience, the actor is now all set to play the role of the Indian spy Kulbushan Yadav in the upcoming film ‘Dhai Chaal’.
Directed by Taimur Sherazi, the film will also star the gorgeous Ayesha Omar who will be playing the role of a journalist from Balochistan. ‘Dhai Chaal’ will revolve around the time during which RAW agent Kalbushan Yadav was operating in Pakistan but it will also have the element of romance.
Farheen Chaudhary has written the story of this crime-thriller. The cast also includes some other prominent names of showbiz including Salim Mairaj, Adnan Shah Tipu and Rashid Naz and will also star some local theatre talent from Balochistan.
Talking to the Images, Ayesha Omar shared that ‘Dhai Chaal’ is a story about the people of Baluchistan and their sacrifices.
“The story is about Balochistan, it’s about foreign entities there and how the people of Balochistan sacrificed a lot and went through a lot of hard times to regain peace in the region. It’s about everything they gave up; it’s the story of students, of journalists.”
The Bulbulay actress added that the team of ‘Dhai Chaal’ includes young, energetic kids from universities in Balochistan who are working day and night from the heart. Ayesha also appreciated the dedication of producer Irfan Asrah who is working in Balochistan for the past 15 years.
“He’s been working in the region of Balochistan for the past 15 years. He’s an anchor as well and nobody gives much importance to Balochistan. Nobody wants to highlight things that are going on and he really wanted to because he studied there, lived there, he saw the struggles of the people.”
‘Dhai Chaal’ is expected to release in February 2020.
