The telefilm “Future Imperfect” is an action- thriller with supernatural elements thrown in the mix. What is exciting to know is taking the lead role is our renowned Pakistani actor Aijaz Aslam. In the tele-film, Aijaz Aslam plays the role of a self conflicted (type of conflict that takes place within a character’s mind) medical sales representative who finds a diary written in his handwriting. A diary he doesn’t remember writing, and whose entries bewilder him. The diary has one rule for Zahid: don’t question anything, just follow along. With orders from the diary propelling him on a frantic journey to fulfill his own foreordained destiny, Zahid ignites a chain reaction that will change his future…a future that needs to come to pass, without his consent or volition.
Aijaz Aslam, born 3 October 1970, is a Pakistani television actor, model, and producer. He is best known for playing the lead in drama serials “Kashkol“, which was telecasted on NMT in 1993 and 2003’s PTV’s Drama “Mehndi” and GEO TV’s “Kis Din Mera Viyah Howay Ga“
Produced by Zaid Aziz, Future Imperfect is written, directed, co-cinematographed and edited by Mohammad Kamran Jawaid.
When asked why he chose to star in the project Aijaz Aslam had a lot to say,
“I have always been intrigued by anthology shows that had supernatural or fantastic and far-fetched overtones, like The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, so when producer Zaid Aziz approached me to do a ‘different’ project, I felt it was the right time to make a statement, of sorts”.
He further added, “Even though it was grueling, the film was something which I looked forward to shooting every day, from early morning till late at night. What I like about the script is that it is really fast-paced. There are no lags in shots, there are no useless music margins left over, no trying to stretch scenes longer than necessary. It is very fast. The overall story is very interesting and very different, and that is what made me sign this project. Thought and directed out of the box, Future Imperfect is not run-of-the-mill stuff. When you see it, you would feel that this is quite a bit different than the norm. I didn’t want to use this cliched sentence, but this time around, it is actually the case. Maybe, you’d have to watch it more than once, to really get it”,
