Sania Saeed is well known for her exceptional performances and diverse roles. Be it Mehrunissa from Sitara Aur Mehrunissa or Zarghona from Sang e Mah, her on-screen presence has left a mark on us. FUCHSIA sat down with her recently as she shared insights into her upcoming film Kamli, along with some facts! Let’s dive right in, shall we?
Sania Talks Kamli’s Script
“The movie’s amazing script was written by Fatimah Sattar. After reading I got to know that my character has a disability which was challenging yet good. Also, since the script was revised multiple times, it was sharpened perfectly. Our characters’ dilemmas are difficult to convey. Moreover, communicating the stances of all the characters was hard and there was a risk of them going overboard as well. Hence, in this script, everyone thinks that their character is tough to play.”
Sania On Kamli’s Women Centric Team
“Our production heads were all female except for cinematography. Kamli’s set was very female-dominated, and all the departments were handled by women. Frankly, if we got the chance, our drivers might be women as well. Moreover, on the sets of Kamli, we all constantly switch from one job to another and try to help each other to improve their work.”
Nothing But Praises For Saba Qamar
“For Saba, the script was both physically & emotionally difficult. Saba had to go under the water in cold-freezing weather for her scenes and had to climb mountains. Saba is very energetic because the entire process was complex, and only she could do it. Also, Saba couldn’t appear to seem tired because she is the main focus of the story. Moreover, from the choreography of the songs to the challenging shoots, it was all tough, but she did it.”
Sania Saeed Wants You To Watch Kamli Without Labels
“When we watch stories we don’t see them beyond labels, which is not right. We should never put stories in a box of a particular expectation and label them with tags because this is a disservice to the story itself. Hence, the story will slowly reveal itself to you to keep you on your toes for enjoying it from start to end. Therefore, we wish that the audience watches Kamli with an open mind.”
Sania Saeed Gives Us Reasons To Watch Kamli
According to her, the audience should watch Kamli with patience and try to enjoy the ride. Kamli is a commercial film like any other film, but all formula films that we think will be successful, do have the risk of not getting accepted. Hence, we need to alter our idea of commercial films while accepting narratives of movies like Kamli. “So, I am repeatedly asking you to watch Kamli with an open mind, to accept, understand and enjoy the narrative.”
