Moomal Rano

 Ahsan Khan and Saba Qamar’s Film  Moomal Rano is releasing

Ahsan Khan and Saba Qamar’s film, earlier titled Mohabbat Ki Akhri Kahani, which has been in the pipeline for nearly three years now, is finally releasing. However, the title has now been changed to Moomal Rano.

The film which is an Indo-Pak collaboration penned by Zafar Miraj, directed by Sirajul Haq and produced by Zee TV is based on the Sindhi folklore Moomal Rano. According to reports, the name was changed because “it has a higher recall value and since the story is based on the popular Sindhi folklore, it made more sense.”

The film features Ahsan and Saba in lead roles while other cast members include Salman Saeed and Zainab Jameel.

In an interview, dated three years ago, Saba revealed that the film is “a love story based on the folk tale of Moomal Rano and I will be playing the role of Moomal.”

The tragic romance which appears in Shah Abdul Lateef Bhittai’s Shah Jo Risalo is a tale of a woman Moomal whose lover, Rano abandons her thinking that she has cheated on him. Moomal patiently waits for his return only to be reunited much later.
