Gear up Pakistanis – we’re getting a new superhero!

Comedy king Ahmed Ali Butt and the talented duo behind Load Wedding and Actor in Law, Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza are coming together for a new superhero film titled Fatman.

Butt announced the film on social media by sharing a selfie with the film’s makers.


He captioned it, “AlhumduliAllah it’s official. My next film and my first as a lead with these crazy people.”

“Looking forward to making a great film with these great, creative filmmakers and hope you’ll all love it as much as I love the script… InshAllah, see you next year.”

The film’s name had us intrigued so we got in touch with the director and lead actor for some inside details.

Speaking exclusively about the film to The Current, Ahmad said, “It’s a different and bold take on superhero films but at the core, it is a story about a father-son relationship.”

He added, “It also addresses body shaming, yet keeps the family entering factors in mind.”

Meanwhile, Nabeel revealed, “It’s a real-life superhero family entertainment film with a great message which talks about body shaming, with pun intended.”

The film will be directed by Nabeel and produced by Fizza Ali Meerza under their production house Filmwala Pictures. Shooting for the film is expected to start early next year while the release is slated to be in late 2020.
