The 2022 Pakistani action comedy film “Ghabrana Nahi Hai” was written and directed by Saqib Khan and Mohsin Ali, respectively. Produced by Jamil Baig under JB Films and Hassan Zia under Mastermind Production, the film stars Saba Qamar and Zahid Ahmed in lead roles. The new movie “Ghabrana Nahi Hai” was released on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, on 3 May 2022, by Geo Films.
Zubeda, being the sole child of her father, was raised in a manner that encouraged her to become an empowered woman, more akin to how a son is raised. After her father’s unfortunate demise, she seeks justice and approaches Officer Sikandar for assistance. However, things take an unexpected turn as she finds herself caught in a love triangle with Sikandar and her cousin.

In September 2019, the announcement was made that Mohsin Khan and Saqib Khan would be collaborating on a film. Soon thereafter, producers Jamil Baig and Hassan Zia also came on board. The project was initially titled “Zubeda Mard Ban” when it was announced in January 2020, but the title was later changed to “Ghabrana Nahi Hai” in February. Filming was slated to commence in March 2020 after the cast had been finalized. Unfortunately, only two days into filming, production was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Pakistan.
Once lockdown restrictions were lifted, principal photography resumed, and 90% of the filming took place in Malir District, Karachi, starting in November 2020. Filming then moved on to Lahore and Faisalabad in January 2021, and the film wrapped up in February of the same year, following which post-production work commenced.
Arshad Khan served as the film’s cinematographer, while Hunain Shamim took charge of editing. The cast and crew featured 17 newcomers, as the producers sought to showcase fresh talent. The film’s title is inspired by a famous quote from Imran Khan, the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan, and carries a positive message, rather than a sarcastic one.
