It was just last month that we came across the news that Zara Abid, one of the top ten faces in fashion, is all set to make her acting debut with Azeem Sajjad’s upcoming biopic, Chaudhry. Recent reports suggest that she has already begun shooting for the film.
The model will be seen alongside Zohaib Khan, who is from Chicago.
Written by Zeeshan Junaid, we already know that the upcoming film is a story about slain police officer, Chaudhry Aslam Khan.
Speaking to Instep about her character in the biopic, the model turned actor said, “Well, I still can’t reveal much about my character, but all I can say is that Zohaib and I are essaying the characters of college going students. As for my role, it’s strong and not a stereotypical role. As soon as I heard about my character in the film, I fell in love with it and just couldn’t say no. You will see the real Zara in the film.”
As far as modelling is concerned, she shared that all she is today is because of her modelling career, however, this is the right time to give acting a try.
Though the first spell of shooting has begun in Karachi, Zara revealed that the rest of the cast is still being finalised. She added that the movie will have some prominent faces from the industry and that she is sure director Azeem Sajjad will do justice to all the characters being presented in the film.
