Priyanka Chopra says Pakistan`s Oscar entry `Joyland` is `a must watch`


Indian actress Priyanka Chopra has praised Pakistan`s Oscar entry `Joyland` calling it a “must watch” movie.

Priyanka took to Instagram Stories and shared a video of the film`s trailer. She wrote: “#Joyland is truly a joy to watch. Bravo to the entire team for bringing this story to life. It`s a must watch.”

She tagged the film`s makers, director, and some members of the cast as well in her post.

`Joyland`, directed by debutante Saim Sadiq, tells the tale of a patriarchal family, craving for the birth of a boy to continue the family line. The family`s youngest son, the protagonist, secretly joins an erotic dance theatre and falls for a trans woman.

The film stars Sania Saeed, Ali Junejo, Alina Khan, Sarwat Gilani, Rasti Farooq, Salmaan Peerzada and Sohail Sameer. It was released in Pakistan in November after a short ban.

`Joyland` is currently in the 10-film shortlist for the Oscars` Best Foreign Film category, where it is competing with Indian film `Chhello Show` (`Last Film Show`).
