There is no doubt that Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar is a household name in Pakistan. The man has penned several mega-hit plays including Pyaare Afzal, Bunty I Love You, Landa Bazaar, Sadqay Tumhara and more recently Meray Paas Tum Ho. He has also written the blockbuster Punjab Nahi Jaungi starring Humayun Saeed and Mehwish Hayat.

Recently, Qamar decided to don the director’s hat and direct his first feature film. After several hitches along the way which included changes in the cast and release date, his film Kaaf Kangana is finally hitting the screens on October 25. Even the trailer has gotten a makeover. But despite all that has been done, the film’s trailer failed to impress the audiences. In fact, Pakistani Twitter is lit with comments mocking the film and its Kashmir-related dialogues.

References to Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta’s Veer Zaara were made.


Some people commented that the earlier trailer was better.

Watch the trailer here:

Khalil-ur-Rehman’s directorial venture has faced several challenges along the way. The film began with Sohai Ali Abro as the lead but soon after, she quit and was replaced by Urwa Hocane. Farhan Saeed was also roped in for the film but the couple decided to bow out of the film later. The film’s leads Eeshal Fayyaz and Sami Khan were finalised after this.

Meanwhile, Resham was also supposed to be part of the film but dropped out a day before the shoot for reasons not known.

Apart from Sami and Eeshal, the film starres Ayesha Omer, Fiza Ali, Saba Hameed, Abi Khan and Sajid Hasan. Neelam Muneer will be doing an item song in the film.

Kaaf Kangana is scheduled to hit the screens on October 25.
