  • Development of the project started in 2016 when behind the scene shots of the film were shared by Shaan himself.
  • Zarrar is considered to be Pakistan’s second spy thriller action film after the release of 2014’s O21.
  • UK based Director of Photography (DOP) Tim Wood was hired for the project.
  • Shaan had chosen Pinewood Studios UK, for the post production of the film after which he did with his earlier film, Arth – The Destination which was a remake of the original Arth.
  • It was released on 25 November 2022. It was originally set for release sometime in 2020 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was then moved to release on September 23, 2022, but was moved from that date due to the 2022 Pakistan Floods. After multiple delays, the film was then moved to its current release date in November.
