Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza’s most recent cinematic outing, Load Wedding

may not have broken records at the box office but it won the hearts of viewers and

critics alike. The film stars Fahad Mustafa and Mehwish Hayat in key roles and

comments on our society’s obsessions with marriage and dowry.

According to recent reports, the film has been nominated as ‘Best Feature’ at the

upcoming Jaipur International Film Festival that is scheduled to take place from January

24 till 28, next year.

Nabeel confirmed the news to Instep and shared, “It feels great. Fingers crossed. I hope

we win.”

The festival is held annually in January or February in Jaipur, India, since 2009. It will be

a good platform to showcase Pakistani content amidst audiences in India and it will

hopefully help bridge the gap between the two countries through cultural exchange.

Aside from Load Wedding, that released in Pakistan and beyond on Eid ul Azha this

year, three films made by Nabeel and Fizza are expected to screen in India in the

coming days. Na Maloom Afraad 1 & 2 and Actor in Law will take centre stage at the

South Asia Forum for Art & Creative Heritage (SAFACH), New Delhi, in January 2019.
