ISLAMABAD – The country’s most successful film franchise, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, has been inspired by the life of Imran Khan, the prime minister was finally informed by the movie star Hamza Ali Abbasi following their recent interview that aired on Saturday.
In the aftermath of the interview, in which the two discussed sex, drugs, rock & roll, along with the moral degradation of those who live their lives like the premier did, Hamza told Imran that Jawani Phir Nahi Ani was originally intended to be the PM’s biopic.
“The filmmakers originally called it ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani… WTF Jaani,’ with the JPNA bit being the first half of the film, depicting your youth, and the WTF part being the second half, depicting your hypocritical, self-righteous, self-unaware, cranky older self,” Hamza Abbasi told the prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
“Then they decided to scrap the biopic temporarily and making a franchise just inspired by your jawani,” the host told a visibly flattered Imran Khan.
Hamza also informed the premier that many other local films he has been a part of had actually originally been intended as biopics on different aspects of Imran Khan’s life.
“Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, was originally going to be Main Hoon Imran Khan which myself playing you, which is still in the pipeline, by the way. Similarly Parwaaz Hay Junoon was originally intended to be a film on your affiliation with sex, drugs and rock & roll, minus the sex and rock & roll bit,” the host further informed his guest.
“Waar too was originally supposed to have a more honest portrayal of the Taliban, with you as one of their political representatives. This was of course before ISPR decided to sponsor the film and then you,” Hamza further informed the premier.
