Divulging exclusive details about Khabardar, Mohsin said: “The plot primarily deals with all the (No’s) that we as responsible citizens shouldn’t be practicing in our daily life. For instance, do not spit, don’t smoke or don’t pluck flowers etc. On the contrary, we have a habit of doing exactly the opposite.”
Talking about the bold content of the short film, he explained: “I feel our audience is watching bold content already on popular digital platforms like Netflix, so I am sure they will respond to ‘Khabardar’ in a positive way. I think someone at some point has to take the initiative to produce such content. Having said that, we have already clarified it on the official poster (PG 18) Bacho Ke Pohanch Se Dor Rakhe. The cast includes newcomers i.e., young and talented students; who have also written one part of the script. Besides, I have co-written the script with the team of writers as well.”
Mohsin shared some interesting insights about the OST: “Initially, we had no plans for the OST, but during the shoot; I conceived the idea of doing a hardcore RAP. It’s been quite a while since I haven’t done a rap, so it was kind of perfect. The music is given by Zohaib Ali Pinkoo. Ali Sher has given the background score. We are yet to shoot its video soon; can’t wait for you guys to see it.”
