In conversation with the leading cast of “Superstar”

Published

on

Are you all ready to welcome this sizzling hot duo on the silver screen? We were just too excited to get a little sneak peek into Superstar so, we got Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf to spill some beans about their movie releasing this Eid-ul-Azha which has by now become the talk of the town.
Both the artist looked super excited and full of energy for the promotions.
According to Bilal, his role is extremely diverse and complex. “Sameer Khan is a journey; it covers film, theatre, personal relationship with his parents and the love of his life. It was extremely challenging yet so simple at the same time that anyone can connect to the character. It is a simple love story of two people”

We asked him; Why Superstar?
The most important thing is that I just have to feel it. It is all about the energy it gives. I felt superstar. The film that has Baig Sahab, Atif’s voice, Azaan’s music, Javed Sheikh, Ali kazmi, Marina khan and Mahira khan, who doesn’t want to be the part of such a movie?

How was your experience working with Mahira khan?
She is Mahira khan because she has unbelievable energy, she will spoil you as a co-actor, and she will always be on time. The time and energy both are very important to make a movie. I have learned a lot from her. Even when we are down, dead and tired, she is always super active and full of energy.

The best thing while shooting for Superstar?
That everyone was having fun. We started shooting in February and now we are releasing this movie. It was very easy and a lot of fun and time flew by so quickly.

Considering the chemistry between Mahira and Fawad initially, were you intimidated while building up a level of chemistry and romance with her?
No, I was not intimidated and that has to do with Mahira. If you look at Hamsafar, they were not this close. Superstar has a different romance and chemistry. What really helped was the fact that we did theatre together for good 25-30 days. It really helped and we became comfortable with each other. Romance is all about energy. For any girl to give that energy is very important and this is probably the backbone of the chemistry and I give Mahira the credit for this.

Can you relate to the character?
The trailer is quite different from the movie. It is actually a story of two people. I can relate a lot to this character. It has taught me how to love again not romantic love only but how to love the finer things in life. Superstar has helped me reconnect. Also, you will see my romantic side in Superstar.

Janaan or Superstar?
Janaan was my first love. But in all honesty, I tell everyone even if I don’t do any movie after Superstar, it is fine. I don’t care how it performs on Box Office. I have worked hard and I am fearless about the results. In real life, I am more like Sameer (Superstar) and not life Asfandyaar (Janaan).
While talking to Mahira, we got to know about her views.
Mahira said, “Well, this movie is a special project; a passion project. There are some things that you do and you don’t care about anything even if it works or it doesn’t. I like the character, the love stories and this movie was all in one. I enjoyed every minute.”

How is this movie different from other movies releasing at the same time?
It is not a RomCom, it is a romantic drama. It is much higher on emotions. I don’t think you will see a film with a climax like this. I don’t think there has been a movie where we have performed theater in the movie itself. For me, it was like something new to do.

How was the chemistry between you and Bilal?
With every person it is different. People keep talking about Khirad and Ashar but it has been so many years. With me and bilal, it has been very easy and comfortable. I have to give credit to him as well.

7 Din Mohabbat In (7DMI) did not do well because it could not relate to the audience, how do you think Superstar will relate to the viewers?
Even though in 7DMI, people could relate to those characters as well. I think it is not about the character, it is about the story. Does the movie keep you curious and interested? Only that is important.

Talking about the dialogue “Hum choty gharon k actor hain na is lie, sab k sath so kar hi to kaam milta he humey” – the trailer shows how getting into entertainment industry has a lot of hurdles including some dirty games, are we promoting this message to the young generation?
I would never do a film which puts my profession in a bad light. I will portray it in a truthful way. The whole story behind this particular dialogue in the trailer is that there are always black sheep in every industry. However, hard work and persistence can do wonders. It also shows the great side of this profession. I believe my industry will love this movie. Also, it is not about an industry, it is about the mindset of people. But yes, there is a struggle especially for people who are outsiders in the industry, lacking connections.

KASHMIR Are All Ready to Release a New Single ‘Ayi Bahaar’

Published

on

One of the greatest discoveries of Pepsi Battle of the Bands has to be the 2017 Winners of the competition KASHMIR, an alternative rock band from Karachi that really came and conquered. The group which consists of 6 members has been making headlines with their music ever since. They finally satisfied their fans with their debut studio album ‘Khwaab’ last year. The album was critically acclaimed and reminded us of all of the reasons as to why we fell in love with this band in the first place.

Well, after much anticipation, it looks like KASHMIR is finally putting out new music once again and we are genuinely thrilled. The band teased the arrival of a new single ‘Ayi Bahaar’ on their Social Media, and fans have been patiently waiting for the single to drop on the first of October.

 

The name of the song is enough to tell us that the song might somehow be related to everyone’s favorite season (Spring aka Bahaar!) and so we have reason to believe this is going to be a fun and funky song. The cover art for the single looks amazing too and we can’t wait till we can listen to the song.

 

KASHMIR has managed to rise to fame in this very competitive music industry with their original sound and beautiful lyrics. Since Pakistan has started to see some growth in the music industry – it is extremely rewarding to see how this new band is taking center stage and bringing us some brilliant music while they do that!
