Sohai will play Zenith Irfan, the first Pakistani woman to make a solo motorcycle journey through the country’s north. The release date for Zenith Irfan’s biopic starring Sohai Ali Abro has finally been revealed.
Motorcycle Girl will be released in cinemas across Pakistan on 20 April this year. The movie is writer/director Adnan Sarwar’s second feature film after the 2015 biopic Shah, based on the story of Pakistani Olympian boxer Syed Hussain Shah.
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.
“The remarkable story of what Zenith did at such a young age caught my attention after Shah and I knew it was the right subject to turn into a film”, said Adnan Sarwar. “I have scripted a fictional world around the core true story of her journey and I hope that Motorcycle Girl will help further the cause of women empowerment in Pakistan”.
Sohai Ali Abro underwent extensive training and followed Zenith Irfan’s bike journey from Lahore to Khanjerab during the shooting of the film.
