Ali Zafar’s Lightingale Productions has partnered with one of the world’s biggest film studios, Yash Raj Films, the production house behind some of the most iconic films of our time.
YRF will be exclusively distributing Zafar’s upcoming film and Lollywood debut, Teefa in Trouble, worldwide.
Speaking about this landmark development, Zafar said, “Today I feel deeply humbled to have a huge dream fulfilled. To take our cinema global in the best possible manner and to do it with a company that is not just a company but an idea that love transcends all.”
He continued, “My relationship with YRF goes back to 2010 when I signed up for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, followed by Kill Dill. I have some of my best memories and experiences on those films.”
“But what is dreamlike is that the company he formed with so much love is now going to be spreading the same passion that we have tried to create in our first film to the entire world, making sure the film is seen globally. YRF will officially distribute the film in international markets. I can’t wait for the world to watch Teefa In Trouble!”

In a statement, YRF Vice President, Avtar Panesar said, “We at YRF share a strong and seasoned relationship with Ali Zafar having produced two movies and a music album with him; we’d like to think of YRF to be his home in India. It was a natural progression, taking that relationship to the next level with Ali as Producer with Teefa In Trouble. We have never distributed any film from Pakistani or from any other part of the world earlier. We’re looking forward to making this the first of many.”
Founded in 1970 by Bollywood’s esteemed producer, late Yash Chopra, YRF is one of India’s biggest production houses.
Apart from Ali Zafar, Teefa In Trouble also introduces Maya Ali to the silver screen. Directed by Ahsan Rahim, the film also starres Javed Sheikh, Asma Abbas, Mehmood Aslam, Mahenur Haider and Faisal Qureshi.
The film is scheduled to release on July 20 across Pakistan and internationally.
