Pakistani films Tamanna and Good Morning Karachi have been short-listed to screen at the prestigious London Asian Film Festival(LAFF) this year, said the festival's coordinator Rahila Fateh.

Tamanna, which will release in cinemas across Pakistan on June 13, was screened at LAFF on June 8, while Good Morning Karachi is scheduled to screen on June 14.

LAFF also had Pakistani film Josh on the list, but were unable to screen it due to technical problems faced.

"Unfortunately we won’t be playing Josh now due to technical reasons," said Fateh.

Fateh further added that British Pakistani stand up comedian, Nadia Manzoor, will also be performing at a documentary screening tonight at the University of Westminster.
