The Pakistani short musical video 'Ki Jana', made on the theme of honor killing, has been nominated for two international awards.
In this regard, a well-known actor and singer Mohsin Abbas in various posts on Instagram informed about the nomination of the music video for the music category in the 'Miami Short Film Festival' and 'Bucharest Film Awards'.
He also congratulated the 'Ki Jana' music video team.
The music video was directed by director Nabil Qureshi, who had earlier directed films like Load Wedding and Actor in Law. Actress Sonia Hussain has played the lead role in the video while Mohsin Abbas is also part of the video. The music of this song has been composed of Shani Arshad while its lyrics are derived from the poetry of Baba Bale Shah.
The theme of the music is 'murder in the name of honor' (Ghairat ke naam par qatal غیرت کے نام پر قتل) which shows that a boy and a girl get married to their own free will. However, every attempt to escape fails and both are killed by the girl's father.
Keep in mind that the Miami Film Festival and the Bucharest Film Awards include awards for short films, music, trailers, feature films, and other categories.
