Viral couple Seema and Sachin may be having their Veer-Zara moment

Entertainment Desk August 04, 2023

Love is in the air, it seems. And the elements know no boundaries. News regarding Seema Haider and Sachin's whirlwind romance has spread like wildfire, and if reports are to be believed, a certain Indian filmmaker has shown interest in this escapade of affection. According to Aaj Tak, filmmaker Amit Jani has announced plans to make a film based on the extraordinary cross-border love story. 

Seema, a Pakistani woman with four children, entered India illegally through Nepal to be with Sachin, whom she fell in love with while playing the online game PUBG. Leaving her family behind in Pakistan, she embarked on a daring journey to start a new life with Sachin, only to face difficulties due to political tensions between India and Pakistan.

Amit, who owns the production house Jani Firefox, was deeply moved by Seema's struggles after entering India. Initially hesitant about her intentions, the filmmaker did not want Seema residing in India. However, when he eventually recognised her plight - given those legal proceedings and the abruptness of the decision has led to the duo struggling for the basics - Amit reportedly offered her a lead role.

Varying reports suggest that while Amit intends to make a film on Seema and Sachin's Veer-Zara moment, he has also offered Seema the role of a spy in his upcoming venture, A Tailor Murder Story. The narrative follows the infamous Udaipur murder case of a tailor. It has been reported that Seema will be paid for the film as an actor. However, reports regarding Seema's confirmation are yet to be seen. 

Seema and Sachin's love story took an unexpected turn when they secretly met in Nepal earlier this year, making memories with the children of a hotel receptionist and getting married. Seema then made the daring move to illegally enter India with her children to be with Sachin. However, their love story soon attracted the attention of authorities, leading to their arrest on charges of illegal entry. Despite facing threats and demands for her return to Pakistan, Seema remains firm in her desire to live with Sachin.
