Making her acting debut in Pakistan drama industry through “Teri Meri Kahani” last year, the Pakistani starlet Saheefa Jabbar Khattak will be next seen gearing up for her upcoming play Daag.
Directed by Mohsin Mirza and penned by Ali Moeen, the play features Saheefa Jabbar along with Saboor Aly and Affan Waheed in lead roles.
During an interview about her character in the play, she stated, “The play is about the continuous struggle of a girl, Aimen, who makes a mistake in her young age and has to bear the brunt later.”
“You will see me playing young to old – in the first seven to eight episodes I will essay the character of a young, teenage girl and later a woman who is in her late 30s.”
She further added, “I play Saboor Aly’s mother in this play, which highlights the bond of a mother and daughter and how she puts in efforts to provide her daughter with the best of everything.”
While being asked what difficulties she has faced donning the role which was quite opposite her personality, she spoke in these words, “It is definitely very challenging as my acting career is still in its initial stages with only two plays to my credit. I’ve always said that I don’t want to do typical roles and though it is quite challenging playing a mother to Saboor, who is so talented and experienced as compared to me, I am thoroughly enjoying the experience.”
Apart from the leading cast, the play will also feature Saba Hamid, Nadia Afgan and Kashif Mehmood in pivotal roles. The play will go on air later this year.
