His last release Javed Iqbal has been in the news for all the right reasons. The film has been getting global recognition but hasn’t been released in Pakistan. “Yes, Javed Iqbal was selected as the opening film for its world premiere at the UK Film Festival. It got the maximum number of shows as compared to other films. I and Abu Aleeha (director) won the award for best actor and best director respectively.”

There’s also a buzz on social media that Javed Iqbal has been selected for the Berlin International Art Film Festival. However, Yasir is still waiting for final confirmation on that. “Even I read this news on social media (chuckles). The production team hasn’t given me any confirmation or invitation regarding this. Let’s see what happens.”

For the unversed, Javed Iqbal had its Karachi premiere on January 25. The very next day, the director took to Twitter and shared that the Punjab government had put a halt to the film hitting the cinemas. However, According to Dawn Images, director Abu Aleeha is planning to pitch an uncut version of the film to be pitched to OTT platforms.
