Upcoming Pakistani murder mystery film Chakkar’s cast was spotted at Abdullah Shah Gazi’s Mazar in Karachi.
Stars in the lead role include Ahsan Khan, Neelam Muneer, Yasir Nawaz with Jawed Sheikh and Danish Nawaz in supporting roles. The film is a mixture of dance and romantic songs composed by Naveed Naushad and is among the top 4 films releasing this Eid-ul-Fitr.
Was this a promotional event?
From the photos that have appeared on social media, it seemed as if the cast and filmmakers went to the Mazar to pray for the success of their upcoming film on Eid. However, reports suggest otherwise. Popular media outlets reported that the cast went to Abdullah Shah Gazi’s Mazar to promote their film.
Film promotions are difficult for the actors and essential for the filmmakers. If the promotional events are repetitive and identical, it gets boring. So to make it interesting, the team behind the events come up with different and fun ways to promote the film. However, going to a religious place can garner quite a stir and rage among the believers.
That’s what happened when the photos of Nida Yasir, Yasir Nawaz, and Ahsan Khan praying at the Mazar circulated online. The people who consider the place sacred were against them going to a shrine to ask for success for their film/promote it.
Many left angry comments on social media
Some said it is biddat to pray at shrines, while others said this is a promotional tactic from Bollywood – in 2011, Katrina Kaif was spotted at Sheikh Salim Chisti’s shrine amid the promotional activities for her forthcoming film Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.
