It was only in the month of April when an announcement was made, that Adnan Sarwar who is the actor/director of the critically acclaimed film Shah (which was released in 2015), is set to start the production of his new feature film.
The film which is to be independently produced is based on Zenith Ifran’s real life story. A girl who has broken down boundaries and is the first Pakistani female who has managed to make her solo journey on a motorcycle through the northern regions of Pakistan.
In a latest press release with regard to the film, it has been announced that Sohai Ali Abro will play Zenith Irfan’s character in the film.
On the news in circulation, Sohai has said:
“It is absolute honour to play Zenith in his film. The role of this incredible, empowered female is one that I can relate to and is close to my heart. I have always believed in the liberating the power of our women, especially considering the taboos we face in our society, and I am really happy that a lot of young girls would be able to look up to me for doing something positive and inspiring.”
A rise in attention which is being brought to the real heroes of Pakistan much like Zenith Irfan, through the medium of film is a measure, as we’ve mentioned in an article before, should be highly appreciated.
