After much anticipation Sohai Ali Abro’s ‘Motorcycle Girl’ is here with it’s first poster and it is definitely promising. Directed by Adnan Sarwar, the film will also stars other big guns such as Samina Peerzada and Sarmad Khoosat.
Motorcycle Girl is based on the real life story of Zenith Irfan, who is the first Pakistani female to have made a solo journey through the northern regions of the country.
Zenith’s multiple bike journeys, through areas “where it’s taboo for women to venture out unaccompanied, let alone riding solo on two wheels,” have attracted worldwide attention and been covered by publications such as CNN, New York Times and Vice etc.

– Promise me that you will not go back to what destroyed you. Promise me that you will be kind to yourself. Promise me that you'll take care of yourself. I need to know if you'll value yourself. Once you promise me this, I will be your friend. Don't loose your spark. Keep shining, Zenith. 🌱 #ZenithIrfan #1Girl2Wheels #Motorcycles #Pakistan #Adventure #Travel
Sohai shared that it was an absolute honour to play Zenith.
“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 power of our women, especially considering the taboos we face in our society. I am really happy that a lot of young girls would be able to look up to me for doing something positive and inspiring,”
To prepare for her role, Sohai also learnt how to ride a motorcycle and was reportedly making the same journey from Lahore to the majestic Khanjarab Pass that Zenith undertook in 2015.
The movie is set to hit big screens nationwide on April 20th, 2018. We hope it does wonders.
Have anything to add to the story?
