Actress Faryal Mehmood Urges Every Woman to Watch ‘Wakhri’

Faryal Mehmood believes that her latest project, Wakhri, will resonate with the audience in the cinema hall, touching on societal aspects seldom portrayed on the big screen.

In an interview, she emphasized the universality of the movie, urging women to take out 1 to 1:30 hours of their time to watch it with their family or friends.

“When you watch Wakhri, you’ll receive messages without it feeling like a lecture; it combines entertainment with meaningful content,” she expressed. Inspired by true events and the life of social media star Qandeel Baloch, the film is set to release after its international premiere at the Red Sea International Film Festival.

This marks Faryal’s debut in a titular role, portraying a school teacher who becomes an overnight viral sensation for expressing unabashed opinions on social media. The film, directed by Iram Parveen Bilal and co-written by Mehrub Moiz Awan and Iram, sheds light on the challenges faced by a woman striving for a livelihood outside her home.

Faryal emphasized the normalization of harassment in women’s lives and stated that the movie addresses various issues prevalent in Pakistani society. She highlighted the humorous elements in the film, featuring other influencers, making it relatable and entertaining for the audience.

She stressed that the movie is not just about highlighting women’s struggles but also showcases the life of a social media influencer. Faryal expressed confidence that the film, with its funny moments, could resonate with people’s lives, making it a family-oriented experience.

Faryal dedicated the film to her ex-husband in an Instagram post, acknowledging the positive impact he had on her growth. She sees the movie as a tribute to Qandeel Baloch and believes she was destined for a film career.

The actor welcomed the positive shift in Pakistani cinema, where female-driven scripts are gaining prominence, encouraging the industry to continue producing diverse content beyond conventional genres.
