Momina & Duraid Films Superstar featuring the gorgeous Mahira Khan (Bin Roye, Bol, Raees, Verna) and the dashing Bilal Ashraf (Janaan, Yalghaar, Rangreza) in lead roles is a “feel good” story of love, passion, ambition, heartbreak and the cost one has to bear to achieve their heart’s desires. The story revolves around two main characters Noor and Sameer. While Noor dreams of making it big in the film industry, Sameer being the son of a superstar, has celebrity status and stardom handed to him on a silver platter. Superstar is a journey of these two characters when they eventually cross paths, and highlights their struggle to find the true meaning of the word superstar, the price they have to pay and the sacrifices they have to make to be successful.
Amongst all the glitz and glamour, the film also highlights how important it is to nurture and preserve theatre to find true artists. It also reinforces the point that art should not have boundaries and should flourish on love, affection and dedication rather than hate, envy and deceit. The film highlights the fact that everyone has the right to dream big and dare to live.
