Shahroz Sabzwari and Syra Yousuf are reportedly starring in a love story directed by Omar Essa, even after their split. One would think that couples who have separated would not even prefer seeing each other after the split; however, the case is not the same for Syra and Shahroz. The two seem to have gotten a better hold of their careers and shot a love story together. We are assuming the two are trying to maintain a professional balance in their lives.
Apparently, the couple signed the film before their separation. The film’s shooting had begun, but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the shoot had to be halted. In an interview, Shahroz, while speaking about his films that are currently lined up, revealed that only a song of that film is left to shoot. He said, “Only a song from that film is left, which we’ll shoot on 25th, 26th, and 28th of this month. Another action-packed adventure of mine is completed while another film, titled Agar Magar, will also be finalized soon.”
While the director did not give away the film’s title, the film, however, revolves around a couple that has broken up, and either one of them is now trying to win back their ex. Who would have thought the film’s storyline would mimic the stars’ real life and be released after their separation? Most people who adored the couple on-screen and off-screen must be waiting impatiently for the film to come out as this might be the duo’s last ever on-screen appearance following their divorce.
The director of the film, Omar Essa, revealed to a local publication that a couple of days of filming are still left. The film may get some attention due to the cast and the storyline, but Essa keeps his expectations low due to the pandemic. He said,
“I am not keeping any expectations as of now. With the condition of our industry/business models, thinking about it will just make me ‘chirchira‘. That’s not a good place to be when I am still in the creative process. I have done a reasonably good job in filming I feel, but things can still go wrong in post-production. So let’s keep praying for the best.”
“We are not their ‘khandan walay’. We have a professional relationship and they believe in the project. They have worked hard towards it, especially Syra. The role required a lot from her, physically and emotionally. Even if we had started production after their problems, I like to believe they would have still done the project.”
Last year, in March, Shahroz and Syra announced they are getting divorced on social media after seven years of being together. Shortly after the announcement, Shahroz tied the knot with model and actress Sadaf Kanwal in an intimate ceremony, given the pandemic. It was probably the most spoken about and criticized quarantine wedding that took place in the fraternity.
The couple said that the reason behind their divorce was “irreconcilable differences” and asked people to respect their privacy. They have a daughter together, for whom, they wish to be better parents regardless of their differences.
