The sequel to one of Pakistan’s most-loved comedy flicks Na Maloom Afraad (NMA) is all set to be shown at the South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF) in New York.
NMA2 directed by Nabeel Qureshi and produced by Fiza Ali Meerza marks the return of the infamous trio (Javed Sheikh, Fahad Mustafa, Mohsin Abbas Haider) as they embark on a new mission to gaining riches quickly involving an Arab sheikh whose gold toilet gets stolen in South Africa. The film also stars Urwa Hocane and Hania Amir in supporting roles.

According to an entry on the festival website, Azad is the story of a free-spirited radio jockey who goes by the name of Azad (the free one). When he meets his ex-girlfriend Jia, in a chance encounter Azad realises that he might not be as free from his past as he likes to think.
Rehan Sheikh makes his directorial debut with this film, which makes the feature at SAIFF an exciting prospect.
