PTV will air an ISPR documentary about the Karakoram Highway on January 1, 2022.
In collaboration with Delirium Productions and Frontier Works Organization, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) will air “Karakoram Highway – Where Men and Mountains Meet” on PTV on January 1. As shown in the film, many public officials and private citizens made unseen sacrifices and worked tirelessly to build the highway.
By way of Twitter, Pakistan’s Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudry announced the film’s airing. As a “tribute to our heroes,” the minister dubbed the movie. An official trailer for the documentary was released on YouTube on December 12 by the military’s media wing. Zohaib Pervaiz is responsible for the film’s direction.
The viewers will be able to relive the epic moments that led to the construction of the Karakoram Highway in the documentary. As the world’s eighth wonder, the Karakorum Highway (KKH) stretches for more than 1,300 kilometers through the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan. In addition to the “Friendship Highway,” it is also a symbol of the close relationship between Pakistan and China. “A soul for every mile” was coined as a metaphor for the countless sacrifices that have been made for this enormous undertaking.
In the words of ISPR, “KKH is the dream project of a complete nation achieved through sacrifices rendered by 813 Pakistani martyrs during the manifestation phase.” 567 and 246 civilians are among these martyrs. A total of 982 Pakistanis have also been seriously injured due to the incident.” ‘Where Men and Mountains Meet’ is a film that honors and remembers the past. It will allow Pakistanis to learn more about its development and construction.
