The film revolves around the notorious serial killer who raped and killed more than 100 children in Lahore between 1998 and 1999 and burned their bodies in acid.
The murderer of 100 children was sentenced to death 100 times by the court on March 16, 2000. The accused along with his accomplice was found dead in Kot Lakhpat Jail, Lahore on October 9, 2001.
It seems like our artists have started taking Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advice seriously to make films and dramas on indigenous characters, but it also surprises that they could not find a positive story like, Ertugrul Ghazi, to tell so far.
India has produced web-series on Lahore’s Heeramandi which revolves around the themes of love, betrayal, succession & politics in the ‘kothas’.
Taking it to Instagram, Yasir Hussain had earlier this month showed serious concern over “HeeraMandi” web-series production.
“This is Lahore and India is producing movie on this subject”, Yasir had stated. Moreover, he had raised a question that why we (Pakistan) do not cover its stories?.
Earlier, Pakistani actress, Mansha Pasha was also not happy over the production of film on Lahore’s Heera Mandi in India.
“India is making a film on Lahore and the infamous Heera Mandi of yesteryears. Because we live in a country where fictional narrative is often censored”, Mansha had stated.
