    After his last release, Sun Zarra, Salim Aftab is back with two films, Yudh and Hindu. While Yudh stars Mimoh Chakraborty, Hindu will star Aftab's son-in-law, Samir Aftab in the male lead.

    Hindu is said to be inspired from the real-life stories of Asha Patel and Asha Sharma, who tried to cross the LoC in Jammu last week, to meet their Pakistani boyfriends. They had got acquainted with Khalid Mumtaz and his brother, who live in Lahore, via the Internet.

    Say sources close to Aftab, "On May 15, after watching the story being flashed on the TV channels, Aftab sat together with his dialogue writer, Santosh Saroj, and the director of Hindu, Rohit Krishnakant Naiyyar, till 3 am, discussing the script.

    They didn't want to waste a minute, as the subject is very hot, so they called up Mithun and asked him whether Mimoh would play the negative character. Mithun refused, and said it was too early in his son's career to play such a role."

    So the film is based on the real-life incident? Says Aftab, "All stories are inspired from some real life incident. Even Mughal-E-Azam was inspired by what actually happened.

    Hindu is a love triangle - the story of two boys and a girl - the girl is from Pakistan, while the boy she falls in love with Indian. I will be shooting parts of the film in Pakistan," informs Aftab.

    Son-in-law Samir is playing the male lead. "It's true that Mithun didn't want Mimoh to play an anti-hero, but Mimom and Yogeetaji loved the script and story. Now, I am waiting to give Mithun a full script narration," says Aftab.
