Not often does one get a chance to act alongside Pakistani starlet Mawra Hocane. So when singer turned actor Bilal Khan got a chance to debut with Pakistan’s favorite actress, needless to say, he was a little nervous.
In Hum TV’s hit drama serial Sammi, Bilal plays the role of Aaliyan, who supports Sammi (Mawra Hocane) in her attempt to end the Vani system which prevails in their village.
Now that Sammi has turned Bilal Khan into a household name, he’s shared his experience of working with the bubbly little diva, Mawra Hocane.
“I was in London, playing a concert, when I was told I’d be starring in a role opposite her. On the flight back, I was surprised to find her movie on the in-flight entertainment on Qatar Airways and I watched it with awe and nervousness. “
Now isn’t that just adorable? Bilal goes on to admire the Sammi starlet for her patience and devotion to her work.
“I saw her slog through despite suffering injuries, her school work, late nights on set and the million other things she does on the side.”
It seems Bilal cannot stop praising the queen of Pakistani TV!
“There is a reason why she is at the top of her game, it’s no fluke.”
Read the complete note below:
As #Sammi comes to an end, I thought I'd share my experience and what I've learnt from my co-actors on the sets of my first serial. In this post I'd like to talk about working with @mawrellous aka Mawra Hocane. I was in London, playing a concert, when I was told I'd be starring in a role opposite her. On the flight back, I was surprised to find her movie on the in-flight entertainment on Qatar Airways and I watched it with awe and nervousness. Don't get me wrong, I'm very confident when it comes to performing music but this was new territory & it was going to be with people who know what they are doing. Nevertheless, I went in with a learner's attitude & to do the best I can. I learnt so much from Mawra: from tiny technical acting details to how to have an endless stamina on the sets. I saw her slog through despite suffering injuries, her school work, late nights on set and the million other things she does on the side. There is a reason why she is at the top of her game, it's no fluke. A lot of the scenes have come out so good because of the patience she showed with me as I fumbled through deep & meaningful but tough urdu lines. Most of all, I learnt professionalism from somebody who is hyper aware of her strengths. PS: Last episode of Sammi airs this Sunday! #MawraHocane #BilalKhan #HumTv
Well, these two certainly look good together onscreen. Will Aaliyan be able to save Sammi from Chaudhry Rab Nawaz? Will Sammi finally be free?
Tune in tomorrow for the final episode of Sammi!
