Adnan Sarwar’s second film is a biopic of The Motorcycle Girl a 20-year-old Zenith Irfan, who is said to be the first Pakistan woman to have made a solo journey through the country’s north.
For the role, Sohai has been signed to play Zenith Irfan. The film will be an independent production, the company that made the Pakistani biopic Shah in 2015.
Sohai says, “It is 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 the 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.”
The film is scheduled for a late 2017 release.
