'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' - A Launchpad for Pakistani Actress Meesha
Monday, July 8, 2013 • Hindi Comments

While Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ boasts of a powerful storyline, it also boasts of an incredible cast which not only includes Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Prakash Raj but also the eminent Pakistani screen talent Meesha Shafi.

The Pakistani model-singer-actress, who made her movie debut in Mira Nair’s ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, will now be seen in her first Bollywood venture with the farhan Akhtar starrer. The actress is playing a character named Perizaad, best friend to Farhan Akhtar’s Milkha Singh in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.

Excited about her upcoming movie, Meesha said, "Our cultural heritage and stories are so deeply rooted that it is only natural to relate to the cinema being made here. Art is definitely a universal language and just as Bollywood has a huge audience in Pakistan, Pakistani music has a vast listenership in India." Further, she added, "Both countries are doing an immense service by bridging gaps and reaching out to the people. In fact I would say that Bollywood and Pakistan have an age-old relationship."

‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and ROMP Pictures, releases July 12.
