Rahat Kazmi’s Country Of Blind set in Indian Himaliyas

The one of its kind Ind0-Hollywood film is being directed by the Indian international filmmaker, Rahat Kazmi, who earned fame worldwide by launching his upcoming film ‘Lihaaf’ in Cannes 2018 in collaboration with Cory Tucek of Turn Key Films (USA).

The film stars lead pair television actress Hina Khan and actor director Shoib Nikash Shah along with Airlift and Filmistaan fame Inaamul Haq as main antagonist and Tere Bin Laden fame Pradhuman Singh in important role. Jhansi Ki Rani fame Indian Television actress Anushka Sen is in one of the lead characters. Singapore based actor producer Namita Lal, who won best actress award at Indian film festival of Boston last week, plays a very strong woman in the film along with a British-Indian actor Jitendra Rai who plays an important role. Zahid Qureshi and Rahat Himself are in guest appearances.

Let’s call it International Indo-Hollywood film which would re-create history and who knows, as Slumdog Millionaire did.  Bollywood will open its doors for international audience before hitting Indian theatres as the film shall be theatrically released in America first.

Based on a book by H. G. Wells, the film is named Country of Blind! The filmmaker has definitely taken an inspiration from the book but let me add, many unique elements have been added to take the audience back to that era.

As goes the name, it is about a country of people who are blind but better than normal people,  so be ready to come across unique costumes, which would surprise you even more to realize they are hand-made and that too, by a bunch of young aspiring fashion designers.

Not only this, since the film is releasing in United States, the director is shooting the film in both the languages, taking Hindi and English shots side by side, instead of dubbing. You will find ancient Hindi and English words which will give music to ears and with that, you would magically travel to the era in which the film has been written.

The plot is interesting with a dramatic twist. The film has a blend of comedy, action, drama, romance along with beautiful songs. It also portrays a powerful message which would leave the audience in a frenzy.

After their presence at Cannes film festival Rahat Kazmi, Hina Khan and their group achieved a big milestone by getting a Hollywood deal done during the festival. American Production and Distribution company Turn Key Films joined Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan productions and their group for feature film co-production based on father of Science fiction H. G. Wells famous story Country of Blind.

Shot in the beautiful Himalayas, the movie would release in USA initially,and then be surfaced worldwide, including India. The film would also be screened in a number of International Film Festivals before releasing elsewhere.

The film is produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan Productions, Zeba Sajid Films, Nutzaboutme Cinema (Singapore), Co-Production of Hiro’s Faar Better Films & Turn Key Films (USA) in association with Riaan Rai Motion Pictures (UK), Assad Motion Pictures and Seven Two Creation. The film is expected to release worldwide next year.

Indo-British actor Jitendra Rai to Pair with Hina Khan

Jitendra Rai came into limelight with Dragonflies Only Live for 24 Hours, which was showcased in British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) 2018.

This India-born actor has worked in innumerable Hollywood projects under his screen name Jitendra Kumar. He has appeared in TV series for BBC2, ITV and also, in a crime series of US channel.

He marked his Bollywood debut also with Rahat Kazmi, same as Hina Khan. We can say that Indian International Filmmaker, Rahat Kazmi has left no stone unturned in gifting some of the best actors and actresses to Bollywood.

Meanwhile, after so much appreciation his films have garnered, Rahat Kazmi poured his heart out on his social media handle. Expressing his feelings, he wrote, “A close to heart, slice of life, inspiring story about celebration of life, my directorial feature “WishList” starts rolling in Europe having talented lead pair-Indian Diva Hina Khan and Indo-British actor Jitendra Rai, also starring for the first time multiple award winner French producer Francois d’Artemare and my favorite Sinagpore based actor Namita Lal along with many other German, Swiss and Indian actors.”

Directed by Rahat Kazmi, Wish List deals with regular issues and choices one takes in life but in inspirational ways and also, offers a new perspective. The shooting has already begun in Europe but the release date is yet to be announced. No denying the fact, the team will surprise us soon with the scenic beauty of Europe on big screen.

Hina Khan to star again in Rahat Kazmi’s next film?

The scintillating face of television shows and now Bollywood, Hina Khan is grabbing films back to back. After her red carpet stunning appearance at Cannes Film Festival recently, she would be once again seen with her debutant director and international film maker Rahat Kazmi.

The director who has written and directed many films and has worked with legends like Marc Buschet, launched Hina Khan into Bollywood with his film Lines, which made the headlines lately.

After Cannes, the actress had extended her stay in Europe which was presumed to be her vacation but recently, she was spotted with Rahat Kazmi and team, perhaps shooting for her next venture.

Rahat Kazmi confirmed the rumors saying, “We have signed Hina Khan for three films consecutively and here, in Europe, we are working on our next film where once again Hina Khan would be in a leading role.”

On asking as what made you cast Hina Khan again, the director answered with a smile saying he had never imagined that she would be such a professional and hard-working actress. He added, “Hina gets into the skin of the character she is playing. She is so realistic and dedicated that we signed three films in a row without giving it a second thought.”

The actress who keep her fans updated on social media through her vacation and shoot pictures, said she is glad to shoot in Europe with Rahat Kazmi and team. She excitedly said, “Our next film is being shot in some of the most beautiful locations of Europe and through this, even I am getting to explore a lot. Anyone who loves to travel would love to watch the scenic beauty captured and portrayed in the film.”

Hina Khan is an enthusiastic traveller and that is well explicit from her Instagram pictures. Talking about her next film, she said, “The character which I am playing is very different from Lines, where the role demanded being a simple Kashmiri girl, however, in my next, which is titled, Wish List, the role which I am playing is close to my heart as the character resembles a lot to who I am in real life.”

Wish list is co-written by Vimalesh Godeswar with Rahat Kazmi, produced by Rahat Kazmi Films, Tariq Khan Productions and Zeba Said Films, Co-produced by Hiro’s Faar Better Films & Riaan Rai Films in association with Ahmed Abbas Films, Assad Motion Pictures and Seven 2 Creations.

Nevertheless, Rahat Kazmi is famous for writing and directing out-of-the-box movies. Some of his famous work includes Identity Card (2014), Mantostaan (2017), while four of his greatest work namely Lihaaf, 2 Band Radio, Oxygen and Lines are yet to release. He is internationally acclaimed director whose several movies have premiered in International Film Festivals all over the world. Recently, he released the first look of Lines at Cannes, through which Hina Khan will step into Bollywood.

The character has given me many shades to portray : Ariah Agrawal

The uber stylish and glamorous Ariah Agrawal who currently essays the role of Mishka in the show Kasauti Zindagi Kay, is happy that she has bagged the role because she is getting to perform. In the current track Mishka is seen to be heartbroken because Anurag (Parth Samthaan) falls in love with Prerna and breaks the engagement. Also, further, her sister Komolika (Hina Khan) will no longer support her as she herself is interested in Anurag. This will make Mishka angry and feel cheated that her own sister stabbed her in the back.

Ask Ariah how she enjoys playing Mishka and she says, “Komolika is the most glamorous vamp on the show but I must say that the makers have given me too, a stylish avatar and audiences have loved my naive, good girl character a lot. My role has different shades and it portrays a lot of emotions. From someone who is deeply in love to being cheated and deceived. I am enjoying it very much.”

Ariah, who has been a model earlier, looks sensuous and is definitely going places after essaying the naive and pretty Mishka.
