The upcoming Netflix series, “Khuda Haafiz” is based on a true story of a man who rescues his wife from human trafficking in the United Arab Emirates in 2008. In the film, Sameer Chaudhary races against time to save his wife, Nargis. The two newlyweds are in a desperate situation after losing their jobs during the global economic crisis in 2008. The couple applied for a job in Oman and were accepted – although she received the call first.
The movie is based on the true story of the incident in 2008, where a man tries to rescue his wife from abductors after the girl disappears. The film stars Vidyut Jammwal, Shivaleeka Oberoi, and Abhishek Pathak. Sandeep Francis edited the movie. There is no word on the budget of the film, but it is likely to be on the cheaper side than the original.
After the success of the first film, Khuda Haafiz is set to be a sequel to the cult classic. Shivaleeka Oberoi plays Nargis Chaudhary, a woman haunted by the memories of the past. Sameer Chaudhary is on the verge of breaking up with Nargis, but she insists on adopting the girl. Nandini Chaudhary (Riddhi Sharma) is adopted by Sameer, and the two develop an emotional bond between them.
After a successful opening weekend, Khuda Haafiz has made its way to the Disney+ streaming service Hotstar. With a plethora of action movies and a raging Covid-19 epidemic, the sequel will follow the love story between the lead characters. A sequel will be directed by Faruk Kabir, who also directed the first film. But whether Khuda Haafiz is a hit or a flop remains to be seen.
Khuda Haafiz was supposed to be released in theatres on December 5, but was delayed due to the coronavirus issue. Instead of releasing it in theaters, the movie’s directors and producers sold the satellite rights to Hotstar for about twenty crores. They will likely get even more money by selling it to satellite services like Hotstar. Its success will be determined by the number of viewers it garners.
Khuda Haafiz has a 130-minute runtime. It stars Vidyut Jammwal, Rukhsar Rehman, and Rajesh Tailang. The film was shot in India, with a budget of over a hundred million dollars. It has received an A certificate from the British Film Council. So far, it has been a hit in the UK, and should be a huge hit for Bollywood.
The film is set in a fictional nation called Noman. Interestingly, Noman is an oil-exporting country disguised as an Arabian oases. Jio plans come with free Disney+ Hotstar subscriptions. If you sign up for an unlimited plan with Jio, you’ll also get a free Disney+ subscription. Ultimately, this is a win-win situation for the film’s director and producers.
