Ayesha Omar is popular for her bold characters in movies and television drams, now once again she will be seen in a character of Punjabi girl in her upcoming venture ‘Kaaf Kangana’ a movie by legend Khalilur Rehman Qamar.
The movies comprises cast of Sami Khan, Eshal Fayyaz, Asif Raza Mir, Sajid Hasan, Khursheed Shahid, Shamim Hilali, Saba Faisal and Qavi Khan. Vasay Chaudhry and Ahmad Ali Butt will be seen in cameo roles.
In an interview with local channel, she recalled her journey of this movie and said, . “One day I got a random call from Khalil sahab. He said ‘Meri film karogi (Will you star in my film?)’. There are some people in life who you can’t say no to and he’s one of them. I said yes without asking a single question about what my character was going to be.”
“Khalid sahab then told me his wife was designing the actors’ outfits. When I reached the film set, my clothes were ready and the outfit she made for me really suited my character,” the starlet added. Omar’s bubbly personality seems to have fit in just right with the character. “I play a high-spirited, Punjabi kuri (girl) Gulnaz from Lahore. She is fearless and feisty; someone who lives her life to the fullest. She falls in love with Sami Khan who resides in her neighbourhood. Gulnaz belongs to an upper-middle class family and lives with her grandfather in Lahore. The film is extensively shot in androon (interior) Lahore.”
While talking about aspects of the movie she revealed, “The film has a patriotic aspect to it too. There are two parallel tracks in the film. I play the Pakistani girl while Eshal is essaying an Indian girl.” Being a true believer of ‘content is king’, Omer is confident the film will perform well at the box office. “The audience will see a good film made with a lot of hard work and whole-heartedly.”
She maintained, “I’m really glad I took up Kaaf Kangana. It is a great achievement indeed to work with an institution like Khalil Sahab. I was offered a couple of drama serials written by him earlier but I couldn’t take them up due to date issues. All is well that ends well and I’m happy I’m doing a wholesome film with him now.” Stating Qamar brings out the best in her as a performer, Omar mentioned, “He has the reputation of being strict at times, but that is all part and parcel of the job. We have a mutual understanding.”
Kaaf Kangana is expected to release early 2019.
