Karachi: Pakistan’s VJ-turned actress Mawra Hocane is reportedly going to act in not one, but three Bollywood flicks, but confirmation on two of the three is still awaited.
A photo of Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane became a subject of much fanfare and speculation after it was posted and then quickly removed from the Facebook page of Dubai-based photographer Paul Aiken on Thursday.
Mawra Hocane, the lovely Pakistani beauty who has taken her Indian fans by storm with a strong presence in TV shows such as Ladki Hona Gunah Nahi, Indian version of Pakistani hit show Main Gunahgar Nahin, will make appearances in Indian films soon!
According to sources and Instagram posts, Mawra Hocane is having a great time shooting and rehearsing in Mumbai and has made quite a lot of friends there during her visit.
On Instagram and Twitter Mawra recently posted pictures of her in Mumbai. She has been hinting at reading scripts and interacting with popular filmmakers at the film studios in Mumbai.
TV show Ladki Hona Gunah Nahin was widely appreciated by Indian audience as it was about a rape survivor fighting for her dignity and combating societal pressure. Depicting the antagonising attitude of society and family, the TV show was very close to modern time reality that has marred the oppressive society in India and Pakistan.
Another popular show Gulon Main Rang, which is based on Pakistani novel titled Nikhar Gaye Gulabb Sare, is all set to make way in Indian channels soon. Mawra who plays the lead in Gulon Main Rang is hopeful that she will soon have a chance to make a strong presence in India.
With increasing acceptance from the Indian fans, several cross border actors are making debuts in Bollywood. Ali Zafar, Fawad Khan and Mahira are amongst the few that have recently gone to Bollywood and made their mark.
The Express Tribune quoted her, as saying from Mumbai that her debut Bollywood film will feature Telegu actor Harshvardhan Rane opposite her. This will also be Harshvardhan’s first Hindi film.
The film is expected to be released in September this year.
She said that she will share the details of her other two films after the press event of the first one. When asked if she would consider working in Pakistani films, Mawra said she would like to do a film with songs and one that has a strong script.
She said she hasn’t come across any such projects in Pakistan as yet.
