West is West opens nationwide

Aqib Khan and Emil Marwa star in West Is West, the long-awaited sequel to East Is East, which opens in cinemas nationwide on Friday 25th February.

Aquib plays Sajid, the youngest of a brood of brothers, currently deep in pubescent crisis and under heavy assault from his father's tyrannical insistence on Pakistani tradition. The film follows his time in the Punjab, having been sent to stay with his father's first wife, Mrs Kahn No. 1, who is also accommodating his eldest brother Maneer, played by Emil Marwa. Still very much holding on to their Salford customs, both struggle to adjust to the Pakistani way of life.
