The trailer of Sahir Lodhi’s debut film Raasta is out and it has left the viewers in the splits.
A well-known name in the Pakistani media, Lodhi has often expressed his long-existing desire to enter the film industry.
Raasta features Sahir and Abeer Rizvi in titular roles. The movie has been produced by Sahir, Moidul Hasan and Faisal Zia. The film appears to be an action-thriller with a tinge of romance. However, its trailer is guaranteed to leave one in peals of laughter.
With Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Dil Fakeer playing in the background, Abeer and Sahir romance each other in what comes across as a rather dismal re-enactment of SRK-Kajol’s Sooraj Hua Madham song.
Many claim that with Lodhi’s involvement in the film as the lead actor, scriptwriter, co-producer, and co-director, it will be just to label it a one-man show.
-Of, for and by Sahir Lodhi-
As the trailer unfolds, Sahir is presented in a villainous avatar during an intense action scene heavily reminiscent of several Shah Rukh Khan ones.
The one-minute trailer also showcases the ‘chemistry’ between the two leading actors, leaving one in splits.
The film also stars Shamoon Abbasi, Naveed Raza, Sana Nawaz, Aijaz Aslam, Saleem Mairaj and Saima Azhar.
