KARACHI: If emotions weren’t already heightened for the Mahira Khan-starrer Ho Mann Jahaan, the film’s official trailer release just added to the growing excitement.
Mahira Khan, Adeel Husain and Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui won audiences over with the trailer release of their upcoming film. A string of celebrities flocked to Ocean Mall on Monday to watch the trailer, with the attendees buzzing with enthusiasm.
“It’s a movie about the youth – their love, happiness, sadness, problems, celebrations, but at the same time, their stories are connected to those of their parents,” said director Asim Raza when asked about classifying the film. “It’s a film for the youth but it’s also the story of anyone who is connected to them,” he added.

The two-and-a-half minute clip shows the bittersweet side of life – from the innocent college days to the harsh realities of real life. It gives a glimpse into the relationship dynamics the trio shares and the struggle to break free from stereotypes associated with a music career.
“Both actors (Adeel and Sheheryar) are very different, from different schools of thoughts. I would have to tune myself when working with each. With Adeel, I’d have to be serious and with Sheheryar, it was the complete opposite,” said Mahira in response to which of her two male co-stars she enjoyed working with the most.
Before the start of the trailer, the makers of the film shared BTS footage, and much to the audiences’ surprise, it was revealed that Fawad Khan will be seen in a cameo in the film, sporting a French beard.
The cast also includes Sonia Jahan, Bushra Ansari, Nimra Bucha and Arshad Mehmud. Singers, such as Atif Aslam, Tina Sani, Zeb and Haniya, Abu Mohammad, Asrar, Faakhir and Jimmy Khan, have lent vocals for the songs in the film. Ho Mann Jahaan is slated to release on January 1 next year.
