According to the leading news source, actress Sonya Hussyn has replaced Faryal Mahmood in the film Lockdown. The director and co-writer of the film, Abu Aleeha, confirmed the news.
Another source reported that the Enaaya actress says that she left the project because she wasn’t feeling her best and wasn’t up for a hectic shoot as yet. Also, the filming dates were not flexible for her.
Sonya will now play the role of the lead character alongside actor Gohar Rasheed. The reason behind Faryal’s abrupt withdrawal from the film is not apparent as yet. However, Abu Aleeha said she left for some ‘personal reasons’.
Lockdown will be produced under the banner of Mont Blanc. Reportedly, Asad Malik will be the DoP of the film. Abida Ahmed has written the script.
“It’s a love story with the backdrop of lockdown and the horrors of Covid-19. The whole world is experiencing it right now… how a common man gets affected by [the coronavirus], how a simple couple gets affected by the horror of Covid-19 and the repercussions of lockdown.” Said by Abu Aleeha

The country’s most-loved band ‘Strings’ has taken over our social media, with some legendary collaborations, some beautiful renditions, and all things fantastic, mixing the colors of music in our gloomy quarantined days.
The biggest highlight of our weekend was when Faisal Kapadia went live on his Instagram page with none other than the musical maestro Abida Parveen, and we were blessed with what we think is the best live stream to have ever happened, period. We saw Abidajee performing a few lines from Man KuntoMaula. Kapadia used the live stream as an opportunity to talk to Abidajee about her life, so her fans and all those who were watching the stream could learn more about her. She also sang a few lines of Mehdi Hassan’s classic ballad “Ranjish Hi Sahi,” which practically brought tears to Kapadia’s eyes.
That’s not all; almost every other day, we are blessed with a beautiful acoustic rendition of songs on Bilal Maqsood’s Instagram. He put a sweet little message remembering Junaid Jamshed, and we just can’t get over it.
This beautiful cover of Amir Zaki’s ‘MeraPyar’ is what we exactly needed!
And to top it all off, this medley has our heart!
MeraBichraYaar X Jaana, wow, what a crossover!
Ever since the lockdown has begun, the Strings duo have been active on their Instagram pages and have continued to put out content and videos that have been a source of happiness and entertainment in our lives. They have gone live with a lot of other artists. Faisal has done live streams with another renowned Pakistani singer Haroon, and Palash of the Indian band Euphoria.
Watching the band we grew up listening to and loving dearly fill our lives with music and love has been so so great. Who would’ve thought the lockdown would bring us this candid version of Strings? So, Strings, please continue doing what you are doing, because you have been lightening up our days in the best way possible!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all the people – health professionals as well as others – who are devoting their time, energy and resources in the fight against #Coronavirus. Asim Jofa, for example, is a designer who has really stepped up in this difficult time. He has had top-quality hazmat suits made for doctors in Karachi. I want to thank him for his vision and his generosity. It’s moments like these that truly test one’s character. Our national character is being tested but we are all being tested in ways small and big. It’s an ongoing struggle. I know everyone is fighting their own battles and I salute all of you for your resilience. So: stay indoors, stay safe, and stay in touch online :). . . . . email@example.com #asimjofacares #Ificandoitsocanyou #Fightback #hazmatsuit #selfquarantine #isolation #doctors #nurse #paramedics #stayhome #staysafe #covid19 #coronavirus #pandemic #socialdistancing 🙏🏽
