With more than 8.6 Crores of box office collection in less than 3 weeks, Cake the film is breaking all the boundaries with it’s successful run on the silver screen. Moreover, during the Q/Ans session of the premiere in Karachi director Asim Abbasi even mentioned that he was working on yet another project that will release after Cake. What we all didn’t know was that director Abbasi was actually working on a sequel of Cake! That’s right and it will be featuring none other than the gorgeous Sanam Saeed as its lead!
According to a recent post shared by the film’s official Facebook page, there were a few things regarding the film that both the audience and the story needed closure with. In fact, director Abbasi will be sharing another slice of the Cake in a completely different angle than the one we know.
“For those of you who have seen it and are wondering about Zara’s life in London, brace yourself kyoun ke #EkSliceAbhiBaakiHai,” the post said.
If you’re familiar with the story of the film, you might have seen how incomplete Zara’s (Sanam Saeed) storyline is and while watching you most likely wanted to know about what she had been through in London to get a divorce. If you haven’t watched the film, we suggest you turn around and watch it now before reading any spoilers!
In a recent interview director Abbasi explained the concept behind the film:
“Zara’s storyline in the feature film is exactly how it was scripted,” Asim said in the interview with Something Haute. “Adnan, her husband, was her broken past and although referred to multiple times, was never visualized. But, in London, we also shot a tangential narrative focused on Zara’s character, a prequel of sorts, that doesn’t have any bearing on the main storyline but is an interesting ten-minute companion piece to the film.”
On the contrary to what the filmmaker said, the squeal will apparently be releasing online rather than getting a place on the silver screen.
“The prologue is in English and artistically takes a different approach from the main film,” the director revealed. “We don’t have a release date yet but it will likely come out as web content.”
