LAHORE: Pakistani actress and model Amna Ilyas on Thursday has termed her character in upcoming movie ‘Baaji’ as a turning point in her career.
In a statement, the actress said that the confidence she has developed during the promotion of the film was amazing.
She said that Meera is not only a senior artist but she is her Baaji and lucky charm. I feel happy after working with such a legendary actress, she added.
Directed by celebrated ad-maker Saqib Malik, the film revolves around Shameera who’s struggling to remain relevant in her acting field and finds herself competing with a younger woman Neha (Amna Ilyas).
The actors — including Osman Khalid Butt who plays an American director of Pakistani origin and model Ilyas — were in the UAE to promote their film, releasing here on June 27.
Director Malik also clarified that Baaji isn’t a copy of Bollywood films like Heroine starring Kareena Kapoor. The Madhur Bhandarkar film dwelled into the life of an insecure actress too.
