Saira Shahroz is set to debut in film



Saira Shahroz, Pakistani TV actress, has set to silver screen and she is simultaneously working in two projects. The VJ of the music quiz show Bheja Fry on MTV Pakistan turned actress will be making her big screen debut in a venture by the Hot Water Bottles production house, named Chalay Thay Sath. The movie will be directed by Omar Adil, with the shoot slated to start in April this year. It will be shot in Karachi and Hunza.

Chalay Thay Sath will pursue the lives of four friends, portraying an unusual narrative of love, friendship, family norms and tragedies. The artist will be appeared essaying the role of Resham, a free-spirited, daring youngster. Saira shared her happiness on the fact that she obtained a chance to voice her views about the creative facets of the movie. She told that “The team-members are open to suggestions on how things should be done,” she added as, “That is clearly and interesting aspect – where I found it lacked, I have played my part.”

Saira has done everything perfectly from hosting, modeling, television assignments and now films. But she is of the view that she has yet started. As she revealed, “To be honest, I always wanted to direct,” she added that she would be contented to take the director’s seat, “I don’t want to be too old and regret never having opted for it. So yes, I want to do it soon and do it well. It’s definitely something I am looking to explore in the future.”

However, Saira didn’t disclose much regarding her second cinematic project, excluding that it will be a super hero movie with a “very well-written” script. She is also willing to set into Bollywood pursuing the footsteps of fellow actors like Humaima Malik, Mawra Hocane and Mahira Khan but no compromise with quality. “Yes, I am open to Bollywood but not random offers,” she asserted. “The script needs to be good. There has to be high production value and a worthy cast.”

She wants to work with her husband Shahroz Sabzwari in movies someday. As she shared, “We have a great chemistry on screen, but for films, we would have to rely on a great script and a good production. We are certainly not wasting ourselves as a couple, neither do we plan to waste an opportunity that comes our way.”
