It’s a celebration of love and friendship, an action-packed rom-com – a story about love transcending boundaries in a cross cultural relationship. Don’t say Bachaana, the first feature film Nasir Khan has directed, is not ambitious!
Sweet, bubbly Aalia, who is Indian, undergoes a series of unfortunate events and is forced to place her faith in Vicky, a Pakistani taxi driver in Mauritius – a man she hardly knows. Thus begins an adventurous journey of love.
The film features award winning actress and model Sanam Saeed (Aalia), who is well known for her roles in dramas such as “Zindagi Gulzar Hai”. Mohib Mirza, who plays Vicky, has worked as a host, producer and actor in leading Pakistani dramas and telefilms. The film also features one of Pakistan’s leading comic talents – Adeel Hashmi.
Hum Films & Big Film Entertainment in collaboration with British entertainment entrepreneur Nasser Fazal of Green Flag Films released Bachaana in the UK on 22nd April. Nasser Fazal said, “Bachaana is a complete entertainer and a visual treat, the best from Pakistani cinema – I am certain it will strike a chord with South Asian audiences in the UK.”
Director Nasir Khan said, “After the fantastic response in Pakistan, we are really excited to bring Bachaana to the UK audiences. I am excited for both Sanam Saeed and Mohib Mirza as their chemistry in the film would be something everyone will connect to immediately in the UK.”
Bachaana released in over 15 screens across the UK, including: Odeon Cinemas in Glasgow, Birmingham Broadway Plaza, Cardiff, Leicester, Leeds, Bradford, Manchester and Trafford Centre; at Cineworld Bradford, Luton, Feltham, Ilford, Wembley and Wandsworth; and Vue Cinemas in Starcity Birmingham and London Harrow.
