Model-turned-actor Humaima Malick, who rose to fame with Shoaib Mansoor’s Bol last year, is now set to make her entry into Bollywood with a role in action-thriller Sher.
The film, which will be shot in Jaipur, Gujarat and Rajasthan, will see Malick starring opposite Bollywood veteran Sanjay Dutt. Directed by Soham Shah of Kaal fame, the film will also feature Vivek Oberoi and Paresh Rawal. Buzz has it that Malick has taken her Pakistani stylist Akif Ilyas to India for her make-up and styling.
About her role in the film, Malick says, “I feel I’m crossing the border with a role that echoes my earlier film. Like my character in Bol, here too, my character revolts against patriarchy. I am not just the male protagonist’s wife.” The film is narrated in a flashback by Malick after her husband’s death.
In her first Bollywood film, Malick plays the same role as Shabana Azmi’s national award winning role in Vinay Shukla’s Godmother. Godmother, which was released in 1999, was inspired by the life of Santokben Jadeja, a gangster’s wife.
Sher will be released by the end of the year.
Iman Ali is a Pakistani actress and model.
She is the second daughter of television/film actor Abid Ali with his first wife, Humaira Ali. She has two sisters, Maryam (elder sister) and Rahma Ali(younger sister) and both are actresses. However, people have raised objections on their talents. In comparison with heavy weight like Veena Malik, the rise of such actresses seem a distant dream.
Ali portrayed Anarkali in a seven-minute music video directed by Shoaib Mansoor. Ali then co-hosted the Lux Style Awards in 2005 and has since starred television productions.
In 2007, Ali made her film debut in Shoaib Mansoor’s Khuda Kay Liye for which she received the Lux Style Award for ‘Best Actress’ in 2008. She appeared in a supporting role for Shoaib Mansoor’s second film, Bol.
