“If you think you know a lot already, you’re mistaken. You’re in for a ride you’ve never taken before. An international project by Q Film Productions [and the] first foreign film about a Pakistani sportsman,” he added.
The short clip showed Akhtar’s figure sprinting with his back turned towards the camera in a hazy frame with train tracks in the center. A train siren could be heard in the background, but no locomotive could be seen, as the camera focused on him and his number 14 jersey. The film’s release date was also mentioned in the teaser.
