The biopic of Pakistan’s most notorious serial murderer, Javed Iqbal, starring Yasir Hussain and Ayesha Omar, has a new release date. The film Javed Iqbal: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer, which was set to be released on December 24, has been pushed back until January 28.
Hussain took to social media to present a poster for his next film, which now has a new release date. “Javed Iqbal will be born on January 28, 2022. In theatres near you. It’s not a good idea to come alone to watch it “Jhooti actor Jhooti actor Jhooti actor Jhooti
In another post, he shared a picture with Omar, the leading lady of the film and talked about the chemistry between the two.
Sharing the picture was from their shooting days of Javed Iqbal, the Karachi Se Lahore actor penned, “I learned a lot from Ayesha Omar on the shoot of Javed Iqbal.” Singing Omar’s praises, Hussain added, “Thanks Ayesha for your care and great ideas. You guys will love the chemistry between a police officer and a criminal.”
The Lahore Se Aagay actor had shared the makers have been awaiting a green signal for the film from the Islamabad censor board, which they still haven’t received, hence the delay in the release of the film. “We couldn’t really promote the film because we are still awaiting the film to be cleared by the Islamabad censor board,” he told the publication.
“So, we have to delay the release till January, so we can do promotions in full-swing, followed by the film hitting the cinemas.” Like Hussain, Omar too confirmed the news on social media. Taking to her Instagram stories, the Bulbulay star had commented, “Great decision, had to be done.”
