The makers of the massively successful TV series, Humsafar and Zindagi Gulzar Hai, are all set to release their latest film Bin Roye this Eid-Ul-Fitr in the UAE. The cast and crew of this Pakistani romantic drama came down to the Khaleej Times office yesterday to promote their film. Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed are playing the lead roles, along with Armeena Rana Khan, Zeba Bakhtiar and Javed Sheikh.

“I hope to see all of you on Eid in the cinemas watching Bin Roye. I don’t know how to lure you guys into watching it but it really has some beautiful moments, lovely songs and I think we have a pretty awesome cast as well. Bin Roye for me is the journey of our lives,” said Mahira while talking about her forthcoming release. The beautiful and talented actress from Humsafar also described her experience working on her Bollywood debut Raees opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

“Everybody on the set was very talented. It was a surreal experience. It was a tremendous learning experience. It is a different world altogether, people speak the same language but the scale of the movie is much bigger. It was interesting to work with the kind of actors I did, Shah Rukh Khan especially. For sure, I have shed another layer as an actor, I have come back much more confident and content.”

Bin Roye marks Momina Duraid’s debut as a film director.  She has co-directed this film with Shehzad Kashmiri. This film will first be released as a feature film and a few months later, will be telecast as a drama serial on Pakistani television featuring the same cast.

“I think this is the first time Pakistan is making a romantic movie. Acting and the story of this movie are marvellous and I am pretty sure that the audiences will love this film. We spent two years making this film, as we were simultaneously shooting for a drama serial for TV featuring the same cast and story,” explained Humayun Saeed.

“This film is the first of its kind; it is family oriented, colourful with a good message,” said Armeena while describing Bin Roye.

Mahira Khan And Humayun Saeed’s Bin Roye will release this Eid- ul-Fitr across the UAE and Pakistan. Watch out for the full interview with the cast and crew in City Times soon.
