Here’s another performance we’re itching to see in Saat Din Mohabbat In.
Meenu and Farjad’s upcoming rom-com starring Mahira Khan and Sheheryar Munawar Siddiqui will also feature Mira Sethi in a comedic role.
“I’m playing a British-Punjabi character,” she reveals to Images. “It’s a comic role. When I read the script I ‘lol-ed’ silently to myself: veering from Punjabi to BBCD British English is a funny sight to behold. There aren’t too many comedic roles written for women, so this was an “AHA!” moment. The writing for my character is terrific.”
She adds, “It’s not your run-of-the-mill “village” Punjabi, think of a Bradford-tinged accent, so playing with that will be interesting,”
And how is Mira prepping to step into the shoes of her British-Punjabi character?
“I’ve been watching bits and pieces of reality TV about Pakistanis living in Bradford–there are some funny YouTube videos out there,” she tells us.
Saat Din Mohabbat In, scripted by Fasih Bari Khan, follows a young man on a quest to find his true love in a crowded Karachi neighbourhood. Like all good love stories, he will encounter obstacles, both spiritual and physical, that he must overcome in order to achieve his goals.
