Screening of Pakistani movie “WAAR” for IBA Alumni


After the successful screening of the movie, “Chennai Express”, on August 31, 2013, a Lollywood block buster movie “Waar” was screened exclusively for the IBA Alumni at the newly opened Nueplex Cinema in Karachi.

The event held on Sunday December 03, 2013 and it was made possible by the efforts of Mr. Shahid Shafiq, Alumnus of 1974 and Alumni Representative on the IBA Board of Governors who played an instrumental role in arranging sponsors to get a 50% discount for the movie tickets and booking the cinema. This whopping discount could not have been possible due to the generous sponsorship of Mr. Rehman Panjwani, CEO Qasim Freight Station, leading handlers of LCL import and export cargo providing warehousing facilities.

An email was sent to Alumni a few days before the event and tickets were reserved within a few hours of the original email. Some of the Alumni showed up at the venue to buy the tickets. Almost 300 Alumni and their loved ones attended the event. The full house show was a success as Alumni and their friends and families enjoyed the movie.

It was a great show put up by you guys. (I) would appreciate events like these (in future) since they act as a platform for networking among the IBA Alumni. It would be really great if we can arrange a Ghazal Night for the Alumni at Main Campus.
