Mehwish Hayat wants to do it all.
She has kicked ass as the loveable lead in Load Wedding.
Showed off her acting prowess as the sophisticated independent lead in Punjab Nahin Jaongy.
Held her own opposite numerous stars in movies like Actor in Law and Jawani Phir Nahin Aani.
Made her foray into the world of singing with her Coke Studio stint with Shiraz Uppal.
With an impressive roster of movies and rave reviews from everyone she has ever worked with, Mehwish is on the path to becoming one of the most sought-after actresses in Lollywood.
Mehwish becomes one of the Teen Bahadurs
Mehwish’s latest stint has been to be the voice behind one of the characters in Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s upcoming movie Teen Bahadur-Rise of the Warriors. At a press event for the movie, both the ladies talked about the importance of the younger generation seeing strong female role models on the screen beside just seeing male superheroes like Superman and Batman. Sharmeen talked about how she was glad to be leading a movie that had so many strong female characters.
“I am excited about all the young girls that will go and watch the film. You go watch Batman, Superman and then there’s a film with many Bahadurs and the majority of them are female Bahadurs. And it’s a very strong message to be giving in a country like Pakistan. I want that when our children see women, they see them as strong and capable, dynamic. Not as weak because Pakistani women are not weak. And of course, you want to see some amazing Pakistani women in fight sequences,”
Mehwish also talked about how she wanted her next role to be in an action movie and not just as the love interest of the superhero but being the superhero herself. According to her, Pakistan is moving leaps and bounds in creating strong female characters for its audience in comparison to other film fraternities like Hollywood.
“Yes! You were asking what I want to do next so, I want to do an action movie next for sure.”
“Even for them, it took so long to bring a woman superhero. So, I think we are in the right direction, we are advancing, bringing an animated movie and bringing women superheroes; that’s a great step forward.”
@ Directors and producers of Lollywood: PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
ALSO, FAWAD KHAN COULD PLAY THE ROLE OF MEHWISH’S NEMESIS OR HER LOVE INTEREST OR BROTHER OR BEST FRIEND.
JUST ADD HIM SOMEWHERE IN THE MOVIE.
