Epic “In the Name of God” wraps Chicago shoot, moves to filmmaker Mansoor’s native Pakistan

Acclaimed Pakistani TV and music video director and composer Shoaib Mansoor completed the two-week Chicago leg of his social-religious epic “Khuda Key Liya” (“In the Name of God”). It also shoots in Pakistan and England.

“Shoaib’s mission is to show the world that all people are not as extreme as they are perceived to be,” said line producer Leigh Jones.

“He wants Americans to see that all Muslims are not extreme terrorists, and he wants Pakistanis to see that most Americans are not these petulant children.”

Pakistani pop stars Shaan and Fawad star as musician brothers from a moderate Muslim family whose paths diverge when Shaan comes to Chicago to study music and Fawad is lured into an extremist group.
