Nadeem Baig’s upcoming movie ‘London Nahi Jaunga’ has been delayed as the world is still suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though our daily lives are coming back to normal, but it seems like we still have a long way to go.
Due to this coronavirus, almost every businesses and industries in the globe had to face massive loss and many difficulties, including the Pakistani entertainment industry.
The upcoming movie would have been released this year but as we all know the virus has not been completely over yet, that is why the shooting of the movie is stopped and left to be completed.
In the past 6 months of prolonged lockdown in Pakistan, many productions were stopped and the cinema’s were shut down in the country to prevent the spreading of the deadly virus.
However, now the government has allowed to re-open cinema’s and have given permission to the productions to start their work while following the mandatory SOP’s.
Film-makers are all very excited that they can finally complete their most-awaited project for the audience, but unfortunately, Nadeem Baig’s London Nahi Jaunga would not be able to release this year.
Nadeem revealed in a recent interview with Dawn Images that, the movie London Nahi Jaunga would not screen until summer 2021 as 18 day’s worth of shooting is still pending to be completed in London.
“I hope that by the time of summer in 2021, life would have normalized. That is when I will be ready to schedule a release date for the movie.”
He also said that, as a director, one of my main priorities has always been to make profits as much as possible for my producer. Right now, even though cinemas are open, but I would not feel safe going to watch a movie in these pandemic situations. And if I’m not comfortable sitting in a movie theater, I can not expect that my audience would want to do the same.
However, even though his upcoming movie is half stuck, Baig is still hoping for the best regarding the rise of theater in next year. He also unveiled his next silver screen project Naram Garam and shared some interesting facts about the very much loved duo of Vasay Chaudhry and Humayun Saeed.
“Vasay Chaudhry is going to be the main lead in this project and he will surely surprise everyone, although Humayun will also be playing a very special role in it.” he said.
