MUMBAI: Actress Humaima Malik, who garnered rave reviews for her performance in Bol, will be seen in a glamorous avatar in Soham Shah's Sher.

Based on the Gujarat underworld, the period film also features Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi and Suniel Shetty.

"Humaima is playing a prominent role in the film. She is playing a Bollywood actress. It's a period film and she has got a glamorous look in the film unlike Bol," Shah told IANS.

Humaima debuted on the big screen with Shoaib Mansoor's Bol in 2011.

Shah has finished shooting for the film, except for the two songs.

"We have finished the entire shooting of the film and just two songs are left. They have to be shot with Humaima. This is not an item number, but the audience will see Humaima's dance number in one of the songs," said Shah.

"We shot the entire film in July and August in Jaipur. It was a 50-day schedule," added the director who earlier wielded megaphone for Kaal and Luck.

@Mir Ali: Sorry to say but what an absurd is this? The answer to your lame questions have already been given in my previous posts. we ARE genuine and this is what matters. We are not making replicas of others' creative work day n night n are feeling proud of it instead of feeling ashamed/guilty about it. The second part of your post is simply rubbish. Where did this political debate come from? Does it relate in any way to our discussion? You indians have this bad habbit of jiggling with politics n trying to fit it somwhere no matter if the news is about a pakistani actor ready to work in a bollywood movie. This is a retarded way of thinking, nothing else. And this was exactly the reason why this entire debate started. I wish you knew how lame and childish your post sound!!

If there is so much "talent" in Pakistan why is it that "LOL"lywood a Laggard ? Why is it slowly dying ? why is it highlighted in a Pakistani newspaper, It appears that this is viewed like a trophy in Pakistan.

I find this quite unhealthy, while Pakistani artists tend to lambast Bollywood while in Pakistan, they are always hat in hand looking for opportunities being presented in Bollywood.

I would like to draw your attention to a 10 minute audio tape of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, who had prophesied regarding the past / present / and future of Pakistan. This is available on Youtube. I would highly recommend that video while you are on Youtube.

I am an Indian Muslim, and feel proud stating the above, for all its faults and shortcomings of political leaders, the fabric of India has not affected religious harmony in India.

Muslims and Hindus have lived for more than a thousand years, it might surprise you that the first mosque in India is not in Sindh when Mohd Bin Kasim came there, the first mosque in India is the Malik Deenar Mosque, in the state of Kerala which was built in 642 AD. The state has a large muslim population who live in harmony and peace there, Kerala has a literacy rate in excess of 98% (unimaginable in Pakistan). People leaving Pakistan for India is proof enough that the 2 nation theory was flawed.
