“One should never forget the innumerable sacrifices made at the line of control so that we can breathe easy”, says director Suzad Iqbal Khan. He adds, “My intention behind “The Hidden Strike” was to not only salute the people who keep us safe, but also create a war film with action sequences of international standard. We have ensured that the movie stands toe to toe with any of the titles that Hollywood boasts of.” On collaborating with ShemarooMe, he shares, “The lockdown has made it implausible for our film to reach the big screen but I heaved a huge sigh of relief on knowing we’ll be coming to ShemarooMe Box Office, which assures that a record number of audiences get to view it”.

On the opportunity to play a tough as nails army man, Singham Returns star Deepraj Rana shares, “Who wouldn’t want to essay such a powerful character with a no-nonsense attitude? As the release date nears, I am filled with nervous excitement. My performance is dedicated to the thousands who protect us day and night, hope the whole country watches our film on ShemarooMe Box Office, and treasures their selfless efforts”.

Elated that his film is releasing on such an important day, producer Vijay Valbhani shares, “Very few producers get to create not just a great film, but one that contains a pivotal message of ‘Nation first’. The fact that we arrive on Independence Day is just perfect. Our film reiterates that India won’t back down anymore; we welcome peace but don’t entertain miscreants that cause us harm. The Hidden Strike is for all those champions in olive green who tirelessly preserve the integrity of Atulya Bharat.”.

Mir Sarwar: the man of many faces and get-ups

Among the many actors making a mark in the Hindi film industry, Mir Sarwar perhaps stands out for his versatility, an attribute that has helped him bag varied roles till date. While already playing his trade in numerous films like Bajrangi Bhaijan, Jagga Jasoos, Jolly LLB2, Dhishoom, and Phantom, Mir has consistently altered his persona, portraying characters on his own terms.

Though a director’s actor, Mir aims to follow his distinct trait in his upcoming movie Lateef to Laden. He has given his all in portraying an interesting yet powerful character of a militant fond of Osama Bin Laden. The dark comedy, a Prem Kumar production, will release on the 26 th of this month. The film is sure to leave audiences spellbound thanks to an entirely altered look being portrayed by Mir. When inquired about his pursuit of versatile appearances he said, “I was always keen about experimenting with looks even before I ventured into the film industry. I remember keeping a goatee long before Aamir’s Dil Chahta Hai released. It was difficult initially, but I gained confidence to continue experimenting. That was the main factor responsible for getting me a role in the film Phantom where the character has 26 passports and looked different in all the get ups.

The Marlon Brando and Al Pacino fan further commented on his take on the movie, “I really liked the concept of Lateef to Laden as a dark comedy and I am sure people will do too. I always make sure to support independent films made in Jammu and Kashmir, and this will be our small contribution to the local film industry as well”.

The actor who hails from Srinagar started his career as a model in 1999. He has also recently completed his four-year stint in Kashmir Daily, a film focusing on the drug abuse and unemployment in Jammu and Kashmir. Mir has been proactive in making other short films on his home state, refusing any pay for these. Mir strives to encourage filmmaking among residents of the area. Apart from shooting for the Tamil film Kaatru Veliyidai directed by Mani Ratnam in 2017, Mir has also dabbled in direction. Bed No. 17 was also shot in India’s northern most state where the film has been screened in several film festivals. He is a living pioneer of Kashmiri cinema whose versatility is akin to none.

Trailer of Prem Kumar Films’ debut movie “Lateef to Laden” launched

Director Shahid Kazmi and a star cast including Tariq Imtyaz, Pari Choudhary and Mir Sarwar recently launched the trailer of Prem Kumar Films’ upcoming dark comedy “Lateef to Laden”, in Mumbai.

Also present at the launch were MTV Roadies winners Shweta Mehta, Pooja Bisht, Hitanshu Jinsi, and actress Sheena Chohan. Not only was the excitement among guests palpable but the makers also received a very positive and favourable response from everyone present.

Lateef to Laden is the story of a shepherd called ‘Lateef’ from a small village in Kashmir who dreams of joining the defence forces although he is not very well educated. Lateef likes a girl named ‘Chandani’ who admires militants. To impress the girl he loves, Lateef starts impersonating a militant leader who happens to be a close ally to Osama. All this triggers a series of events that will not only be a laughter riot but also keep viewers on the edge of their seats throughout the film. To understand whether Lateef finally gets the girl of his dreams, one must surely watch this amazing film.

“The entire film was shot in Poonch, Kashmir primarily because we wanted a location where the culture and environment resemble that of Pakistan. Every character in the film is from Poonch which ensures that viewers get a realistic feel throughout the film. ‘Lateef to Laden’ is a dark comedy built around a cute love story which is what leads to all events that happen in the film,” said director Shahid Kazmi who is best known for factual films like ‘Damini the victim’ and ‘Burahan Wani (which triggered a controversy around Kashmir in 2017)’.

Prem Kumar’s journey to stardom was not a cakewalk. However, he attributes his success to the struggles he faced. From a Security Supervisor and Fabrication Engineer, Prem became a theatre artist, actor and producer. Speaking about this, he said, “I have always wanted to be an actor ever since I can remember. I have dabbled in theatre and also walked the ramp during the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. Given that Lateef to Laden is my debut film, it will always be close to my heart. The story is fresh and the concept is new—something that we are sure everyone from a kid to an adult will enjoy. I urge all of you to go and watch the film.”

Actor Mir Sarwar who was last seen in Neeraj Pandey’s directorial venture ‘Aiyaary’ will also be seen in the movie. “I loved the concept and idea of Lateef to Laden the moment I heard it. I have always supported independent films especially those made in Jammu and Kashmir. It is a small contribution on my part to support the local film industry. Lateef to Laden gives a new perspective to some very poignant issues and I would request everyone to go watch the film with an open mind,” said Mir Sarwar.

Debutante actors Tariq Imtyaz and Pari Choudary are also an integral part of this movie. Lateef to Laden releases on 26th October 2018.
