‘Jannat’ premiere in Pakistan

The Bhatts — Mahesh and Mukesh — have always encouraged talents from across the border. In fact, in almost every film produced by them, a Pakistani composer or singer has always been associated with it. Besides, their last few films have had a theatrical release in Pakistan too. The latest is that JANNAT, their new film, will be premiered in Pakistan.

“Yes, there should be two premieres, in Mumbai and Pakistan, respectively. The Pakistani premiere is scheduled exactly a day before its release since we are planning a simultaneous release there,” Emraan Hashmi confirms, adding in the same breath, “It’s a love story primarily, with cricket and match fixing being the wallpaper — a subject both Indian and Pakistani audiences haven’t witnessed on the big screen yet.”

Although the Bhatts have released a couple of films in Pakistan in the past [reportedly, AWARAPAN was a huge success] and Emraan enjoys tremendous fan-following there, the actor hasn’t visited the country yet. “I am looking forward to visiting Pakistan this time,” he sounds excited.
