Adnan Sarwar, the actor/director of the critically acclaimed Shah (2015), is all set to start production of his new feature film.
The film is based on the story of boundary-breaking “Motorcycle Girl” Zenith Irfan who, at the age of 20, is thought to be the first Pakistani female to complete a solo motorcycle journey through the northern regions of the country. And the leading lady of the film is the very talented, Sohai Ali Abro.
“I feel that Adnan is such a sensitive and intelligent filmmaker and I truly believe in the kind of cinema he wants to create. When I saw Shah I just knew that I had to work with him someday and here I am,” said Sohai in a press release. “It is an absolute honour to play Zenith in his film. 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, and I am really happy that a lot of young girls would be able to look up to me for doing something positive and inspiring.”
Sohai Ali Abro has raised the ante this time by signing a female-centric film and we’re super excited to see the Saat Pardo Mein star, as Zenith.
