It seems that the most awaited Pakistani film based on Shahid Afridi’s life is finally going to release soon. In an interesting development, a fake movie poster of “Main Hoon Shahid Afridi” has been surfaced today over internet.
Update: the previously shared movie poster is termed as a FAKE by the film producers, therefore it has now been removed from site.
Cricket and films are two of the most favorite pastimes of people in the subcontinent. Both these terms are now being merged by Humayun Saeed, as he is producing a movie based on the life of flamboyant Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi. The trend of such sports related movies has been imported from the neighboring country, where movies based on sports have gained much popularity after the success of “Chak De! India.”
The film titled as “Main Hun Shahid Afridi” implicates the struggles and attainments of a simple boy who made it big in cricket through sheer determination and hard work. 19 year old cricketer Noman Habib will portray the lead role of cricketer Shahid Afridi.
Another reason for keeping fingers crossed for the film is Mahnoor Balcoh, who reportedly is performing an Item song for the movie. It has been revealed that the song on which she will be performing her much awaited item number is “Charhti Jawani”. Besides Mahnoor, the star cast of the film includes Humayun Saeed, Javed Sheikh, Nadeem Baig, Shafqat Cheema, Ismail Tara, Abid Kashmiri, Annie Jaffry, Seemi Raheel, Farhana Maqsood, Shahzad Sheikh and Shahid Afridi himself .
The film is being directed by Syed Ali Raza. The film’s promotional work is about to begin and it will not take long for the viewers to see its trailers on TV channels. The movie is expected to be released in the coming summer.
