Name of Shamoon Abbasi comes first into our minds when we talk about class and versatility from our entertainment industry. Now, Shamoon is all set to mark his directional debut. He played major roles in a number of films and dramas including the top-notch O21, Manto, and Waar.
Among “Parwaaz Hai Junoon” Shamoon is focused on “Durj” as well for which he had to undergo an astonishing transformation. As a feature-film director, it’s his first film starring him in the main lead also.
“Durj” is based on a historical criminal act which Shamoon discussed in an interview.
“Durj is based on a terrifying reality and though I can’t reveal much about the plot at the moment, all I can say is that the story is based on a historical criminal act that has occurred numerous times all around the world. We researched thoroughly and picked up incidents that took place in Pakistan and then turned it into a suspense film.”
During the production of “Durj”, Shamoon had to reject many offers and he also talked about his shocking transformation for this film.
“The actual character that was arrested for the crime had a particular look and I wanted to look like him and hence decided not to go for a certain get-up and makeup that would look fake. So, I grew my beard for more than a year and went bald for the film.”
With celebrities hard work and dedication, it is just so interesting that how stars transform themselves into an entirely different character in order just to fit into the role. Shamoon showed that he is one of those and he proved it with his amazing transformation that even cost him all his hairs.
The teaser of movie “Durj” was released in may and it also stars Myra Khan, Dodi Khan, Nouman Javaid and Sherry Shah among others. The film didn’t reveal much about its story in the teaser but we are excitingly waiting to see it’s trailer and movie.
