VJ and actor Madiha Imam is all set to make her debut in Bollywood with Dear Maya, in which she will star with Manisha Koirala. She is playing a role of a 16 year old girl who is curious to know about a woman who lives in her neighborhood and hasn’t left the house for 20 years. The story revolves around family values, love and relationships – in short it’s a basic film about humanity.
“My character Anna is a 16-year-old girl who lives in Shimla,” said Madiha!
The film is a Bake My Cake films production, produced by Sandeep Leyzell and Shobhna Yadav and written and directed by Sunaina Bhatnagar. Music will be handled by Anupam Roy, the composer of Pink and Piku. Madiha reported, “The director was looking for someone to do my part. She found me online hosting one of my music shows.
After watching a few episodes she looked me up and found out I act as well and decided to approach me.” The ban on Pakistani artists working in Bollywood may still be intact, but names from our side of the border continue to shake the other side.
This is certainly a big achievement for Madiha, who is an developing name in the Pakistani television industry. Unfortunately, not being able to promote her film in India, she will do special shows dedicated to promote her film in Pakistan.
The release date of the film is still not confirmed, but the trailer is set out to come out on May 4th!
