The Qur'an reading at Metropole cinema..!!!
It is probably the first time ever that Qur'an khawani (a traditional Qur'an reading ceremony) was held in a cinema house in Pakistan. It was Syed Noor who arranged this unique ceremony in Metropole cinema Lahore for thanks to the God for the success of the under released film "Majajan". According to Daily Khabrain from its Internet edition of 13.4.2006 "Niaz" (the "holy" foods or sweets after the Qur'an reading) was also distributed. This film was produced by Saima and Afzal Khan from England (Larki Punjaban fame). Syed Noor is director and according to some film critics this film is actually his own lovestory with Saima and the film name should have been "Meerasan" and not "Majajan".
