For the past couple of months the Pakistani beauty, model and actress Ainy Jaffri has been busy shooting for an upcoming film. It was only a few days ago when Jaffri shared the news of her coming back to Pakistan from London after the project has been filmed and wrapped up.
In an interview with one of the leading media website, Ainy has revealed quite a bit about her upcoming film – Haraam.
“Haraam is a story of love, the unrequited kind,” explained the actor.
Ainy Jaffri has shared further details about her latest project and said:
“My character’s name is Layla. The film follows the adventures of this group of young ethnically diverse adults who work in a picture framing store. It’s Layla’s last day, her best friend Geo is in love with her but due to cultural and religious differences he is scared to open up to her about his feelings.”
The upcoming film is a project of director Serge Rashidi Zakuani, who has previously made two independent feature films under production company Stepping Stonez.
“They are currently in post production and Haraam will be his third film,” Ainy has shared. “SRZ (as he’s known as) tells independent stories that give a true reflection of London and its diverse ethnic make up.”
The director, himself, had much to share with regard to his latest endeavour:
“Writing and directing Haraam has been an incredibly therapeutic experience. Since it’s inspired by true life events of my own disappointments and heartbreak, I’m extremely proud of what we’ve been able to achieve.”
And on working with the rising Pakistani star Zakuani has said:
“I feel fortunate we managed to get her attached to the project and I’m super excited for audiences to watch the depth, vulnerability and honesty she brings to the role of Layla. With a beauty that transcends physical appearance, Ainy is a global rising star and I couldn’t be prouder to list her as a cast member of our film.”
The film is assumed to show admiration for the Muslim community and we cannot wait to see Ainy act on big screen after her role in Balu Mahi.
Haraam‘s release date is yet to be announced.
