2015 is certainly turning out to be a great year for Pakistani cinema. More and more Pakistani films are hitting the theaters and two films have already made it to the Cannes Film Festival. Now it seems as if Cannes will feature a third Pakistani film.
According to the Imran Abbas official Facebook page, the actor’s film Abdullah has been selected for the 68th Cannes Film Festival scheduled to be held from May 15 to May 21.
The story of Abdullah revolves around the tragic Quetta incidents of 2011 in which five Russian citizens, allegedly suicide bombers, were killed at a checkpost of frontier corps.
If the news is true, this will be the third Pakistani film to feature at Cannes this year after Saffan Qadir’s Holiday in December and Rayika Choudhri’s Baat Cheet.
A search for the film Abdullah on the official website of the Cannes Film Festival did not yield any result. The website does, however, feature Baat Cheet and Holiday in December.
