From Mahira Khan falling on the first day of her dance shoot to Sheheryar Munawar almost breaking his elbow; in the recently released behind-the-scenes footage, makers of Ho Mann Jahaan share what went on during the production of the film.
It’s a film for the youth, says Ho Mann Jahaan director Asim Raza
The eight-minute video includes soundbites of the film’s director Asim Raza and the cast including Mahira Khan, Adeel Husain, Sheheryar Munawar, Ahmad Ali, Sonya Jehan, Bushra Ansari, Arshad Mahmud, Nimra Bucha, Jamal Shah and Munawar Siddiqui. All shared their Ho Mann Jahaan journey and what it taught them.
“When I read the script I confidently told Asim, ‘The driving bit, I can’t do, because of course I can’t drive’. But then he’s like, umm… But Mahira you have to learn. The good thing about Ho Mann Jahaan is that I actually learned how to drive!” shared Mahira excitedly.
“Asim called me when I was in India. He was very keen that I do it (the role). And I couldn’t refuse. I can never say no to Asim,” said Sonya Jehan.

Besides Mahira there is one more Khan who Asim could not do without. “Meri pehli film aur Fawad Khan na ho, aisa ho nahi sakhta tha,” says the director.
“He’s my good luck charm, he has to be there,” he adds.
Fashion designers Umar Sayeed, Ismail Farid and Feeha Jamshed were roped in to make sure the cast was dressed their best for all the scenes. Many top musicians like Atif Aslam, Zohaib Hassan and Tina Sani, have lent vocals in the film.
The film will hit theaters January 1.
