Faiza Saleem who raised the issues of sexism, gender stereotyping and body-shaming through theatre is now looking forward to work for a big screen.
She describes her first film experience as both educational, fun and just a teensy bit challenging.
“In most of the work I do, I usually take on a leadership role. In the film, I was working under people with different dynamics and expectations. It wasn’t something I was used to, so it was a little challenging.”
She further said, “Even though this was a cameo, I feel that I’ve already learned a lot from the experience. In film, there’s a lot of waiting around for your turn and you have to be patient yet maintain your energy.”
Parchi is being directed by Janaan director Azfar Rahman. The film stars Hareem Farooq, Ali Rehman Khan and Usman Mukhtar in lead roles. It is expected to come out later in the year.
