Pak director announces film in collaboration with Iran

Islamabad, May 12, IRNA -- Senior Pakistani film director and producer who has just returned from Iran has announced plans to make a film in collaboration with Iranian cinema.

In an interview with IRNA, Syed Noor said that his project would help in bringing the people of the two countries further close to each other.

The veteran film director said that he has recently traveled to Iran along with his wife, filmstar Saima, to attend the Fajr International Film Festival. “This was my third trip to Iran,” said the producer.

Syed Noor appreciated the Iranian films, which made progress in every department of the film-making.

He thanked the people of Iran for their hospitality and welcoming him in the country with warm heart.

The director praising the rich Iranian film industry said that people of Pakistan are not fully aware about the achievements of Iranian cinema.

Syed Noor expressed the hope that his project would bring the people of the two countries further close to each other and help them to understand their cultures.

He also shared that his co-production with Iranian cinema will be a family, romantic movie.

Renowned dictator praised the efforts of Iranian Counsel General in Lahore and Director General Khana-e-Farhang for their cooperation in realization of such important project.

He urged the governments of Iran and Pakistan to encourage joint productions as without the support of the government these projects cannot be materialized.

Iranian films have been regularly shown in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi which attract large number of people because of their high quality.

Earlier Iranian ambassador to Pakistan Mehdi Honardoost in a meeting with the then Pakistan’s minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that Iran has a vibrant film industry and emphasized the need for joint productions in the field of drama.
