Josh is the first Pakistani (Lollywood) film to be selected for screening at the London Indian Film Festival 2013 (LIFF).
The film is a social and emotional drama directed by Pakistani female director, Iram Parveen Bilal, and is already creating a buzz around the world as it tackles socio-political issues, which have placed Pakistan under the world’s media spotlight.
The film is already setting landmarks around the world. It first premiered at the 2012 Mumbai International Film Festival to rave reviews. It also won the 2012 Los Angeles Women in Film Finishing Fund award for Narrative Feature Film.
In an exclusive Gupshup with MusicPakistan.net, Iram said: “Josh is the first feature, although I have written other scripts, Josh is the first one to be made.”
“We decided to make a film loosely inspired by this woman Parveen Syed who runs these food kitchens around Karachi. It’s about the resilience to do things in Pakistan despite whatever is going on.”
