Sarmad Khoosat pens down a letter to the government and higher authorities
After winning big at BIFF’19, Sarmad Khoosat directorial ‘Zindagi Tamasha’ managed to entice the local audience with its trailer, revealing that it will hit the cinemas across Pakistan on 24th January.
However, the trailer of ‘Zindagi Tamasha’ was taken down from YouTube a few days later, raising concerns on its release in Pakistan. The director Sarmad Khoosat had cleared the air and said that it will be reuploaded soon after some minor deletions as there were a few conflicts over some of the dialogues from the film.
Unfortunately, it looks like there are still some issues that might cause a delay in the release of ‘Zindagi Tamasha’ in Pakistan as the director himself has appealed the government and higher authorities to look into the matter and don’t let his hard work go in vain.
Sarmad Khoosat has penned down an open letter to the President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Chief of the Army Staff and Minister of Information, addressing the issues he is facing with the release of his film in Pakistan.
He added that his film explores themes around gender constructs, class divisions, and complex human experiences but it never intended to attack, to point fingers or to humiliate any individual or institution.
The Manto star mentioned that ‘Zindagi Tamasha’ was cleared by all three censor boards of Pakistan but still, there are some groups who are using pressurizing tactics to stop the release of his film.
Sarmad Khoosat requested the authorities to look into this matter as their whole team is being bullied and pressurized now.
‘Zindagi Tamasha – Circus of Life’ stars Arif Hassan, Samiya Mumtaz, Eman Suleman, and Ali Kureshi.
Nirmal Bano has penned down the story of this film which is an intimate portrait of a family as well as a scorching political commentary on little gods on this earth who police our private passions. The film focuses on the dark side of our society and revolves around a topic that is not openly discussed.
