Actress Hina Khan is becoming talk of the town for her scintillating debut at Cannes. Her red carpet pictures are picked up by leading international media channels at a large scale.

Now, that moment has come for which she arrived here. It is the time of her debut film’s poster launch. Team Lines unveiled the first look of their film today. Hina Khan’s fans were waiting eagerly for this moment since her farewell from small screen recently.

The event started with a talk between the director Hussain Khan and actress Hina Khan moderated by Namita Lal at India Pavilion this evening.

Discussing the film Lines, the director, Hussain Khan said, “Lines is about that bizarre situation which life inflicts upon those who live on borders, revolving around the story of a husband and wife divided between the lines”.

Hina Khan seemed excited while talking about her experience of shooting near Balakot border in Poonch. She expressed her excitement saying, “People of Kashmir are really good in hospitality and we enjoyed shooting in Kashmir.”

Talking about her character in the film, she further added, “I am playing the role of a very strong village girl named Nazia, who is no less than a man and the film showcases how bravely she deals with the troublesome situations coming across her way.

After the conversation, the writer and producer of the film, Rahat Kazmi, along with other producers Tariq Khan and Zeba Sajid joined on stage with co-producer Jayant Jaiswal. Meanwhile, the team felt the absence of one of the co-producers and actor Ahmer Haider at the event, which he could not meet due to his other commitments.

As soon as the first look of the film was unveiled, the entire hall was thundered by cheering and clapping. It was a great day for the entire team. There were smiles on everybody’s face and most importantly, the response from the audience was remarkably extraordinary.

The film, Lines, is written by Shakti Singh and Rahat Kazmi while legendary Indian actress Farida Jalal is in a very important role in the film and Rishi Bhutani is the male protagonist starring opposite Hina Khan.

Suparna Marwah fondly remembers her ‘No jaggery No shoot’ incident on the sets of San’84 Justice ?

Kabir Singh, Patiala House actress Suparna Marwah who plays an important role in the upcoming film San 84 Justice ? is very fond of jaggery and her fondness for jaggery became quite an eventful incident on the sets of the film. Her assistant would always keep a nice little piece of a special fine quality jaggery wrapped in a foil for her to use anytime during the shoot. She also used this as her special formulae to clear throat and maintain good voice texture as jaggery is known to serve as a natural energy booster and stimulant also very good for throat.

However one late night shoot schedule followed by an early morning next day lineup led her assistant to forget the jaggery at home and she ended up without it at the shoot. All was well until Suparna asked for her favourite savoury and there was none, the nervous girl shivered and explained her limitation in getting it, she was very sure there was a storm coming her way and Suparnaji being the actor of class that she is made it look and sound exactly like that through her convincing expressions. The nervous girl threw all the apologies through a bouquet of words that she possibly could while Suparna ji was clear that No Jaggery no shoot till the drama continued for few minutes till Suparna ji bursted into laughed and gave it away that she was simply pulling a fast one

Suparna continued to laughs her heart out while we spoke to her about this. She described how the shoot ended successfully even with with no jaggery. This did become one of the popular lines on the sets No Jaggery No shoot and as a result of this next day there were boxes of Jaggery brought in by various people including a special one that was gifted fondly by Ashish Sahdev who had important scenes lined up with her and Ashish told us, I told Suparna ji, well I have made sure my scenes with you are going perfectly smooth, both had good laughs all through as they shot further. Suparna was actually overwhelmed with the love poured in from everyone on the sets with this lovely gesture. Director Sandeep Rana too had his take in this incident, he said It was a moment of pride for me to see my San 84 Justice team bond like a family and as a director there is nothing better to achieve, I knew from this moment we will have a good film in hand
