According to sources, it has been revealed that Hania Amir, who debuted in 2016 hit film ‘Janaan’, has now been signed as the leading lady for ‘Na Maloom Afraad 2’.
The actress made quite an impression with her performance in her debut film, after which she was immediately offered several TV dramas and films and she signed up for ‘Parwaaz Hai Junoon’ opposite Hamza Ali Abbasi, a movie about Pakistan Airforce.
About her character in the film ‘Na Maloon Afraad 2’, the actress says, “My character is more of a happy shiny person, but then she’s also serious about what she wants, she’s a go-getter.”
Hania seemed pretty excited that the film has a women’s empowerment angle, for which she said:
“You’ll see how this girl goes after what she wants and what she believes in. In the script you’ll see a lot of comments bashing women in the whole ‘larki ye nahi karsakti’ (a girl can’t do this) way. But then you see this woman’s journey of how she’s gone through everything and achieved what she wants, at least trying to get what she wants, despite wondering if she’s fit for it.”
Hania shares how she sees her own achievements, and how her rise to stardom changed her as a person:
“I feel like I need to be the same person I am. People love me for the person I am and there are people who see my work and want to find out about me but it’s when they get to know me that they are eager to work with me. I don’t want to be that demanding celebrity or a diva. It is hard though. When you aren’t a diva, when you are your normal self, a human, people take you lightly. I have noticed that the stars who throw tantrums and are very harsh are the ones that have people swarming over them and they get what they want.This is a mindset that needs to change in our society. I don’t want to have to change myself and become someone I am not, especially when it’s such a negative thing and involves me treating someone badly. I am trying to be myself, and that is what needs to be respected.”
Nabeel Qureshi, the director of ‘Maloom Afraad 2’ now has even more stellar cast starring; Fahad Mustafa, Urwa Hocane, Hania Amir and Sadaf Kanwal.
The movie’s shoot will soon be starting in May and the film will be shot in Cape town.
