Pakistani made forthcoming action-spy thriller ‘Operation 021’ is all set to be released this Oct somewhere near Eid-ul-Azha and not in August as many speculated.
The confirmation of Oct released of the movie was given on the official fb page of the upcoming picture, trashing all the wrong rumors about it’s release on Independence Day. 14th August this year.
“We had officially not announced any release date but since O21 has seen it’s share of limelight recently, rumors began to spread,” said the film’s producer Azaan Sami Khan. “We stayed quiet until we were officially clear from our labs and post-production supervisors that the date is deliverable. Therefore Eid-ul-Azha is the only official date committed by us.”
The producer also shared that the long waited spy-thriller may also be released in India.
“We are in talks with various distributors [in India and around the world], as we are trying very hard to make O21’s release a simultaneous international one,” said Khan.
The film is set to release exactly a year after the release of Pakistani action-drama Waar, which broke records for the Pakistani film industry last year.
Operation 021 has been produced by Zeba Bakhtiar and her son Azaan Sami Khan, in collaboration with Australian director Summer Nicks.
