Sahir Lodhi, who turns equal number of heads in admiration and critique, is all geared up for his new film “Raasta.” A well-known name in the Pakistani media, Lodhi has often expressed his long-existing desire to enter the film industry.

The film, which still doesn’t have an official release date, comes with its own share of issues. Many claim that with Lodhi’s involvement in the film as the lead actor, scriptwriter, co-producer, and co-director, it will be just to label it a one-man show.

Others remain dubious as to whether it will continue on the traditional themes, contrary to the actor’s assertion in an interview with local media outlet that despite the romance story featured in it, it depicts a boy’s battle against the society’s prevalent injustices.

The film boasts big names from the film space, such as Shamoon Abbasi, Aijaz Aslam, Abeer Rizvi, and Saima Azhar.
