It seems Bollywood can’t get enough of Pakistani talent! Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan, and Mawra Hocane are just some of the actors who have made it big in India.
While Saba Qamar, Sajal Ali, Adnan Siddiqui have yet to prove their mettle in B-Land, another young face from Pakistan has been plucked up by India!
Pakistani VJ and actress Madiha Imam will star in an upcoming Bollywood movie with Manisha Koirala.
Titled ‘Dear Maya’, Madiha will be playing the role of a 16-year-old girl in the movie.
Take a look at this short clip from the movie:
Madiha’s character in her own words
“My character Anna is a 16-year-old girl who lives in Shimla (India),” reveals Madiha in conversation with Images.
“She’s a sweet, innocent girl who has a best friend named Ira.”
“Anna’s story is about her curiosity about this woman who lives in her neighborhood and hasn’t left her house in 20 years.”
The producers of the film are Sandeep Leyzell and Shobhna Yadav by Bake My Cake productions.
“It’s a film about friendship, about love, about family, about life… It’s a film about everything,”
“I guess you can call it a drama film, but it has a little bit of everything in it.”
Imam was approached by the directors themselves, after looking at her superb acting in Pakistani dramas.
“The director was looking for someone to do my part. She found me online hosting one of my music shows. After watching a few episodes she looked me up and found out I act as well and decided to approach me.”
“She (director) told me about the story, the plot, and asked me if I’m interested. I asked for a little time to think about it but I realized the story was really good and I wanted to be a part of it.”
Though it was a sudden call, she could not resist saying yes! Dear Maya’s trailer is set to be released on May 4.
Madiha Imam will soon be seen on Pakistani television in ARY’s upcoming drama called ‘Zakham’ opposite Faysal Quraishi.
We wish Madiha the best of luck for her upcoming venture and hope that she makes waves in the Bollywood movie industry!
