“All my friends were so excited to know that I was working with Atif Aslam,” said Haniya Chima, an actor who made her debut with Shoaib Mansoor’s latest movie Bol.
Chima was accompanied by Mahnoor Khan, another actor who made her debut with the same movie and played the character of Chima’s sister, on The Morning Show with Huma Amir Shah on Express 24/7.
Khan recalled that during the shooting of the film, there were hundreds of people who wanted to see the shooting and when they weren’t allowed, they became hyper and starting shouting and throwing things around.
“Even the principal of the school where we were shooting wanted to meet Atif Aslam,” she said.
Both actors felt it was difficult to play roles of characters that were so far from their real self, but somehow or the other they had confronted people who were facing the population problem in their lives.
“We would appreciate the make-up artists who did such a good job with making us look like the characters,” said Chima.
Commenting on the content on the movie which revolves around the problem of over-population in Pakistan, Khan said, “If you can support 20 children, have them; if you can’t, please don’t.”
While Chima believes that the message in the movie was an important one and should be given heed to.
