My commitment to the film was rightful and I dedicated my time and hard-work with loyalty and it is evident from my work.”

Following the notice, all promotional material was put on hold and now according to reports, a delay in release of the film my also happen.

The maker of the film, Momina Duraid told Something Haute, “There are 6 Pakistani films coming on Eid ul Fitr and it’s a reason of concern and worry for all producers as it will be difficult for 6 films to even reach breakeven if released together.”

“Ideally someone should take the step of pulling back in the interest of the entire industry and this is currently being discussed and pondered upon by all of us. I am considering to move seriously although my film is ready to go as I feel that is the right thing to do in the benefit of all films but the final decision of moving the release date is not confirmed yet,” she continued.
