If you liked Urwa Hocane in her debut film Na Maloom Afraad, we have good news. There’s going to be a sequel of Nabeel Qureshi and Fiza Ali Meerza’s 2014 hit comedy and Urwa Hocane is starring in it.
The actor’s publicist confirmed to Images that she has signed the project.
In Na Maloom Afraad, Fahad Mustafa played Farhan, an insurance agent who is fired and needs cash so that he can marry his sweetheart Naina (Urwa Hocane). The film also starred Javed Sheikh and Mohsin Abbas Haider in key roles, while Mehwish Hayat was featured in an item song.
While it’s too early to say what the sequel has in store for Urwa’s character, the actor is confident that the script will be brilliant.
“I have only ever done projects that I have firmly believed in. It’s a coincidence and perhaps a blessing that four such brilliant scripts came to me around the same time and I am ecstatic that I got an opportunity to be associated with the best teams in the industry,” she said to Images.
The Na Maloom Afraad sequel is the fourth film Urwa has signed recently. She is also starring in Humayun Saeed’s Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Jhol and Rangreza.
How is the actor juggling so many projects simultaneously, we wonder?
“I want my work to consume me fully,” says Urwa, “It does get tiring sometimes. But when you love your job, every new day brings with it a lot of excitement and hence energy.”
We have to give it to Urwa — she is quite a tireless performer. Here’s hoping that the passion she brings on screen, shows!
