Akhtar also conducted a ‘Question and Answer’ session with his fans on the new project, asking them to tweet their thoughts using the hashtag #RawalpindiExpressTheFilm.
The film is being directed by Faraz Qaiser under the banner of Qfilmproductions. The short clip featured a very misty frame with train tracks at the centre and Akhtar’s character, with his back to the camera, running. The camera zoomed in on him and his jersey with the number 14 took up the screen all the while a train siren is audible in the background though no locomotive is seen. The teaser also revealed the release date for the film — November 16, 2023. The director, Muhammad Faraz Qaiser, said actualising an idea he had in 2016 is like a dream come true for him.
Additional details of the film are yet to be revealed.
