Shoaib Mansoor dropped the poster of his upcoming film Aasmaan Bolay Ga on Wednesday. The poster features Maya Ali and Emmad Irfani staring at each other while sitting on a land divided between Pakistan and India through a lightning bolt. As dramatic and romantic as it looks, it didn’t go too well with the audience. What was earlier touted to be a documentary on the Operation Swift Retort of 2019 where the Pakistani military managed to shoot down an Indian fighter jet and capture pilot Abhinandan will now have a love angle between an Indian Journalist and a Squadron Leader. Given the political chaos in the country, a user felt that 2023 is a particularly “bad time” to release anything about the armed forces. Another felt that the operation was “cool enough” on its own and didn’t need a love affair to bring in an audience. Another tweep was of the opinion that including a love story might just help the film’s business. “You can’t make people in a country like Pakistan bored with a documentary-style movie, where a single trip to the movies costs you around 2500. This is most likely the motivation behind including a love story in the film. People want to enjoy, they want entertainment,” read the tweet. A number of fans were also unhappy about how the plot reminds them of the Yash Chopra classic Veer Zaara. “Can we stop blending early 2000s Bollywood Indo-Pak films with 2010s Bollywood Indo-Pak films pls?” wrote a user. The bird app was full of excitement for the return of Khuda Ke Liye maker to the big screen. “Shoaib Mansoor is back, baby,” read a tweet. Aasmaan Bolay Ga is slated to hit theatres in 2023. On the work front, Ali was last seen in Parey Hut Love alongside Sheheryar Munawar, while, Irfani made a cameo in 7 Din Mohabbat In. Mansoor’s last film was Haroon Shahid and Mahira Khan starrer Verna.
