Supermodel Omer Shahzad to be part of ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2’


The sequel to Pakistan’s highest-grossing film to date Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 (JPNA 2) has nothing short of a star-studded cast. While Humayun Saeed, Ahmad Ali Butt, Vasay Chaudhry, Uzma Khan and Sarwat Gilani will be essaying their previous roles, Fahad Mustafa, Mawra Hocane and Kubra Khan are the newest additions to the film which is currently being shot in Turkey.

The latest to be part of JPNA 2’s cast is model-turned-actor Omer Shahzad, who is currently making waves with his suave looks and role in Hum TV’s super hit drama, “Alif Allah Aur Insaan.” The dynamic actor made his cinematic debut with Jawad Bashir’s Teri Meri Love Story but his television career took off with Adhoori Aurat in 2013.

Speaking on this new development to a news outlet, Omer said, “When Nadeem came to me with this part, he told me a little about it; but what really made me say yes was when he told me that I was perfect for this particular character.”

Omer did not reveal much about his character and though his role is that of a supportive one, he said that his character is crucial to the film’s plot.

But Omer said that what matters to him is that he is being given a chance to learn so much and polish his acting skills since the other four leads in the film are seasoned and experienced actors, not to forget his favourite also.

Speaking of what the audience may expect from the film, Omer was all praises for the feature. “I think this part (of JPNA) is coming up with something very exciting and stirring, I must say it’s been a wonderful experience so far working with the entire crew, here in Turkey. It’s huge, it’s massive and I am truly honoured to be a part of such an amazing team,” he concluded.

JPNA 2 is scheduled to release on Eidul Azha 2018.
