Jackpot     

Film jackpot starring Javed Sheikh, Adnan Shah Tipu, Sana Fakhar, Noor Hassan and Sanam Chaudhary has not been able to impress the audiences.  Produced by Khurram Riaz and directed by Shoaib Khan, the story of the film centers around a lost lottery ticket worth Rs. 100 crores.

 Gumm

 

 Film Gumm released on 11th January 2019 starring Sami Khan, Shamoon Abbasi  and Shameen Khan could not live up to the expectation of the audiences.
