In an interview with a private media channel, Shaista revealed that she joined the project after producer Seema Tahir referred her for it.
“Upon Seema Tahir’s reference, Mr Barkat Siddique contacted me,” said the first-time actor. “I was out of Pakistan at the time. I read the script and even though I found it so challenging I fell in love with it and decided to be a part of it.”
She added, “Although I have been offered many films in past, I didn’t accept any of them because I wanted to focus on my studies but I couldn’t stop thinking about this script. It’s that irresistibly good.”
Speaking about her character, Shaista has revealed that “My character is a young, naive girl, who is bound by restrictions, she is not allowed to step out of the house, watch TV, read the newspaper, or even continue her studies after basic school education. Her strict lifestyle means that she doesn’t have friends and can’t really speak up about what is happening to her.”
Seap’s release date hasn’t been finalized yet
