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
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.
