Shehzad Roy: ‘My film will be a commercial one’

When Shehzad Roy went from being a singer to an education activist his transition was smooth and seamless. As he set about to reform government schools, his album Qismat Apni Haath Main had strong political undertones.
His next venture is neither a school nor a song, but a film, penned by none other than Anwar Maqsood. Roy is also using this new medium to continue his endeavour to awaken the average Pakistani's political consciousness.
"I never actually intended to do a film," said Roy, "But when the concept was presented to me, it was hard to say no."
During one of his recent interviews, he announced the news and said, “In a song, I only have a few minutes to convey a message. [In film, one has much more]."
The film, unsurprisingly, will be a satirical take on the state of affairs in Pakistan, and will include dashes of romance, action and comedy to make it an all-out commercial film.
"It will be a thought-provoking film," he added, "while watching it, you won’t lose sight of the fact that you’re watching the film in Pakistan."
Roy had earlier mentioned the film as part of his 2015 plans and had mentioned that Ahsan Rahim will be directing the film and actor Faisal Qureshi will also play an important part in the project.
