LAHORE: Shiny Toy Guns revealed the test look for their debut film Dekh Magar Pyaar Say.
This is perhaps the first time that such footage has been released for a Pakistani film, according to a press release. The motion-picture house is headed by filmmaker Asadul Haq and producer Ali Murtaza. The film is said to be a romantic story, set in the beautiful Lahore, featuring award-winning actor Humaima Mallick and also, introducing Sikander Rizvi, grandson of the legendary Madam Noor Jehan and brother of Bollywood actor Sonya Jehan.
The test look revealed exclusive behind-the-scene footage of some of the team members, which includes Saima Rashid Bargfrede as the lead stylist, HSY on fashion/design and Bafta awardwinning director of photography, Nicholas D. Knowland of Jinnah fame as the official DP( Director of Photography). The script is written by Saba Imtiaz, whose book ‘Karachi your killing me’ has made it to international markets and was recently signed up by a production house in Bollywood for an adaptation.
Rizvi has taken a leap from being a restaurateur to an actor. Commenting earlier on the script of his debut movie, he told The Express Tribune, “It’s fantastic and the director is great. Humaima is also great to work with. She’s an actor and I’m just starting out, so she’s really helpful and supportive.”
Asadul Haq also revealed that he is just as ecstatic as his cast to be working on the new production. He said, “I envisioned an avant-garde look and a strong, imaginative storyline for Dekh Magar Pyar Sey.”
