Pakistani movie Ishq 2020 has just released its first look. The movie also stars Sanam Chaudhry, Muneeb Butt of Halla Gulla fame, Marium Ansari & Furqan Qureshi.

‘To sign a movie is like getting rewarded for all the hard work you’ve ever done,’ says Sanam Chaudhry

The press release issued by CMP also stated that “unlike the recent Pakistani movies, it has a female protagonist.”

“Regarding the Indian cast in Ishq 2020, yes, there’s a big surprise for everyone, but I can’t disclose it right now. Also, [Pakistani film stars] Resham and Sana will also be in the film,” said Asma Nabeel, the brains behind Ishq 2020.

“I’m excited for this project. It doesn’t have any maar-dhaar and is all about the beautiful feeling of being in love,” she said.

Muneeb reveals that “The movie revolves around two characters eloping and chronicles that journey, in the process, we see lots of different parts of the country.” The movie will be shot in Lahore, Bhawalpur, Naraan, Kaghan.

“It’s like a hodgepodge of a number of different flicks such as the Ranbir-Deepika starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Jab We Met. I wouldn’t restrict it to one genre; there’s romance, action, comedy but at the heart of the story, there is a love triangle.”

Muneeb also says, “Of course there’s an item song; a movie doesn’t work without any item number these days it seems. There’s a song in the movie, which will be shot at a palace, where two ranis have a dance-off so the team is in talks with Madhuri and Resham. Let’s see how it pans out!”

Ishq 2020 will go on floors next month and slated for a 2016 release.
