Sikander Rizvi, Noor Jehan’s grandson bagged the lead role in an upcoming movie set in Lahore, opposite actress Humaima Malick.
The first choice for the lead role was Fawad Khan. Due to the busy schedule of the actor he turned down the role and the role got into the plate of another cutie boy. Sikander was approached to star in the project, to which he said YES. Rizvi also revealed that he never thought of working in films though he was always surrounded with the company of celebrities from the film industry.
“I never wanted to work in films even though I have always been surrounded by the film stars,” “When Fawad dropped out, I happily stepped into his shoes.”
The romantic-comedy movie’s name is Dekh Magar Piyar Say, a popular phrase in Urdu. The movie is directed by Asad-Ul-haq. “‘Dekh Magar Pyaar Say’ is based in the cultural capital of Pakistan and will be featuring a spanking brand new outlook on the traditional romantic movie, one that is filled with twists, turns, surprises and everything in between, all the while debunking established cliches associated with the romance genre,” said Asad.
Sikander was hopeful regarding the response his film would receive. He stated that he would like to be accepted as an artist and a fine actor like most of his Pakistani contemporaries. The film would be released in Pakistan, India and internationally as well.
