The talented duo and the masterminds behind the famous movies like Actor in Law, and series of Na Maloom Afraad, Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza have teamed up again to produce a web series on infamous Lyari gang war.
Karachi: Lyari, once a war-torn old neighborhood of Karachi, has remained a center of talk for many years. A sleepy lower income area once known for its football craze, has become a warzone over the years. It is not only home to some amazing hip hop artists and colorful buildings, but it’s also a hub to some unforgettable stories. The dark fables of this once a no go area amplify the curiosity and pull the writers into its charisma. The hefty grey clouds of terrorism and gang wars have surrounded this area for many years. The locals have seen much more than the news could ever show.
Last year, a biopic on late officer Chaudhary Aslam was announced who was known for his encounters and anti-terrorism activities in the area.
Now the dynamic twins, Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza have joined hands to create an enthralling web series on this land of unfortunate events. The duad announced that they are going to produce the web series on the infamous Lyari Gang war. In an interview with a local newspaper, Fizza talked about the making of this series. “It is the first time that Nabeel and I are co-directing a project as well. This gritty tale was in the pipeline for years but as Lyari gang war is making to the news again, so we thought that this is a good time to start working on it. The project, however, is still in its initial stage”
“Its too early to reveal the juicy details but we have completed our research on the subject and our script is in completion stages as well. We plan to start shooting in winters as the weather is nicer and it’s easier to work then” Fizza added
Meerza said that these web series will shed light on the incidents of the Lyari from the beginning and will also elucidate the impact of Lyari gang war on the entire city.
Well, this is big news for the people of Lyari and hopefully, it will be able to share the trauma and suffering they have been into for years, with the rest of the country.
On a lighter note, no gang war web series can be completed without the notorious Uzair Baloch, who you think should be playing Uzair Baloch? Share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section
