The team excitedly awaits the result, as UK Asian Film Festival seems to be the only platform which, up till now, has warmly welcomed the film and given it its due appreciation. In Pakistan, the film got banned one day before its release to the disappointment of the entire film’s team which had worked extremely hard to turn the gruesome and graphic story of the real-life serial killer into a big-screen experience.
