Actress Nimra Khan is the latest to join the cast of one of the most awaited drama of the year 2017, Baaghi.
The actor was last seen in Yasir Nawaz’s Mehrunisa V Lub U and now has joined a star-studded cast of the upcoming drama serial, that includes Saba Qamar, Osman Khalid Butt, Sarmad Khoosat and Ali Kazmi.
While in conversation with a private media channel, Khan has shared how she landed the role.
“Well, Nina Kashif from Urdu 1 approached me for this role; she had already seen Saba and I together a few times. She thought we resembled one another so she offered the role of her younger sister to me. She’s a young, impressionable girl who just wants to be pretty and famous like her sister.”
She also added that,
“The drama takes place for a large part in a village and the cast had to copy a Punjabi accent. Luckily, my mother happens to be Kashmiri-Punjabi so the accent came naturally.”
The actor is also confident and positive about the serial’s fate as soon as it airs and has said:
“This show is not fiction but actually based on a real person, everyone is familiar with Qandeel Baloch and her death was a topic of discussion. Everyone wants to know who she was and why she was killed. So I think it will be of interest to the audience and people will surely watch it.”
