Pakistani television and film actress Atiqa Odho set to play a modern single mother in upcoming film.
Atiqa Odho is coming back to the big screen this year. This outstanding star of Humsafar is about to make a spectacular comeback 2016 in Mehreen Jabbar's Dobara Phir Se. Work on the movie has already commenced.
This project is Canadian based though the movie is Pakistani with scenes being filmed in Toronto.
In an interaction she said "It's a comedy written by an Indian writer". She further added that the cast is all Pakistani, with a few of big names appearing in a movie for the first time.
Atiqa emphasized that she is giving a fun touch to her role. The character she plays is interest packed and is that of a modern and independent single mom who rears her kids single-handedly.
The film director is Sonia Ahmed, a first-time feature director. Sonia has to her credit a critically acclaimed documentary' I Shall Dance'.
In making this decision Atiqa was influenced by the role itself and also by the urge to lend support to new filmmakers.
The need of the hour for Pakistani cinema is new talent. So Atiqa said "I decided to do this film to support a new team launching in our industry".
