The much anticipated Pakistani film Operation 021, scheduled to play on Eid-ul-Azha, released its second and final theatrical trailer on Tuesday.

Fast-paced and intense, the trailer leaves you wanting more. As always, Shaan demands attention when on screen and this trailer is no exception.

With surprisingly advanced production quality and lingering, unanswered questions, the trailer will have many pre-booking their tickets. After the resounding success of action-drama Waar, which broke records for the film industry last year, Pakistani audiences seem to have developed a taste for the action thriller genre and have similar expectation from 021.

Produced by Zeba Bakhtiar and her son Azaan Sami Khan, in collaboration with Australian director Summer Nicks, the action-spy thriller is a bilingual film featuring both a Pakistani and a foreign cast and crew.

Launched as a project of One Motion Pictures, the film has Shaan starring as the lead actor, with supporting roles played by Shamoon Abbasi, Aamina Sheikh and Ayub Khoso.

Filmed mostly in the remote rural areas of Pakistan, Operation 021 is scripted to address the political events in Pakistan and bring awareness to the Pakistani audience.
