London Paris New York to premiere in Karachi

MUMBAI: Ali Zafar, who shot to fame in the 2010 film Tere Bin Laden, is excited because his upcoming film London Paris New York is going to be premiered in Karachi on 8 March.

Two years ago, Zafar’s debut film Tere Bin Laden (2010) that the Pakistani singer-actor was co-distributing in Pakistan was banned three days before its release in the country for fear that Islamist extremists could use it as a pretext for terror attacks.

The ban followed even after the producers were willing to drop the word Laden from the title and release it as Tere Bin in the country. But despite all efforts, the film couldn’t be officially released there.

Zafar is confident that it won’t happen this time around. "There’s a huge buzz, people are looking forward to it. In fact, we’ve planned a big, red carpet premiere in Karachi on 8 March if we can get the requisite permission."

Ali has been promoting the film extensively on Pakistan’s biggest TV network, Geo TV, which will be releasing the film in the country.

London Paris New York is a coming of age love story mirroring 3 states of love and brings back wit into Bollywood‘s romantic comedies.

The film is the story about Lalitha, a middle class south Indian girl from Chembur (an eastern suburb in Mumbai) who is on her way to New York to study politics with full scholarship, and Nikhil, a Punjabi, rich kid from Bandra (a posh western suburb of Mumbai )who is going to study Film Making in London on 100 per cent dad‘s money. They decide to hangout together one evening in London and find that they are completely drawn to each other even as their future lies on separate continents. The film follows their personal journey and their love story.

London Paris New York releases across India on 2 March.
