Jannat premieres in Pakistan
May 15, 2008 17:20 IST

When Mahesh Bhatt [Images] took his new release, Jannat, to Pakistan, they got everything they wanted -- a grand reception and media hype. 

To support them were none other than Pakistani cricketers Imran Khan [Images] and Wasim Akram. Pakistani actor Shaan (Khuda Ke Liye) also joined in the celebrations.

The film's premiere, held at Gulistan cinema, Lahore [Images], saw almost 2,000 people.

Jannat star Emran Hashmi got the same treatment in Lahore that Shah Rukh Khan [Images] gets in India. The Pakistani media followed Emraan from the time he came to Lahore, until he left.
