The pair is all set to have two movies going on floors that will drop this year. While the title of one is Fat Man–which sounds as confusing to us as it does to you, the other is Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad, which we believe will take rise in the box office.
Quaid e Azam Zindabad, which follows the story of a notorious policeman, will star Fahad Mustafa as the protagonist, according to recent reports. “Fahad plays the character of a cop,” Nabeel confirmed in his recent interview. Fahad previously starred in several films including Na Maloom Afraad 1 and 2, Actor In Law, and Load Wedding, directed and produced by Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza.
