Pakistani film, Parwaz Hai Junoon, featuring Hamza Ali Abbasi, is set to be screened in China on November 13.
CGTN journalist Shen Shiwei, in a tweet, said: “Pakistani air force film “Parwaz hai Junoon” to debut across China on Nov. 13. One of the movie’s highlights is that the JF-17, a fourth-generation fighter jointly developed by #China and #Pakistan, makes a surprise appearance in the film.”
Too early to predict business success of movie
However, nothing can be anticipated about the business the movie will do in China. The experts say a better understanding of the movie can only be ascertained once it debuts in China.
Produced under the banner of Momina & Duraid Films, the @iamhamzaabbasi, @ahadrazamir and @realhaniahehe starrer will be the first #Pakistani production to release in Chinese mainland cinemas in over three decades.

In a statement released earlier this year, the Chinese Embassy said Parwaz Hai Junoon would be screened in China as part of the ‘16 local-to-local partnership’ to promote cooperation between the two countries.
Global Times reported that the agreement “was signed in April 2019 at a China-Pakistan economic and trade cooperation forum during the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation.”
Pakistani film with a patriotic story
Parwaaz Hai Junoon “tells the story of a group of young patriotic cadets who become the best fighter pilots in Pakistan after experiencing all kinds of challenges and hardships,” the publication commented.
