Model turned actress Amna Ilyas has multiple film projects to her name including 7 Din Mohabbat In, Ready Steady No and Baaji that released in June last year. According to reports, Amna has signed another film project, titled Mastani, which will see her opposite TV’s favourite Affan Waheed - who won many hearts with drama serial Do Bol and is presently starring in Ghalati.

Amna Ilyas, who is said to be playing the titular role (Mastani), confirmed the news to Instep. According to director-writer of the film, Usman Rizvi, the film falls under the genre of comedy, drama and suspense.

Usman told Instep, “Mastani is a story of a lion-hearted young woman, who wants to bring a change in society but fate had other plans for her.”

In a recent interview, Affan Waheed, who is making his big screen debut with the film shared, “It’s an exciting, enthralling and awe-inspiring love journey of a kind-hearted and ordinary man Shakil and his complete opposite love interest, Aaliyah. One of the reasons I chose this script was that my character didn’t require slapstick humour to make its presence felt.”

Produced by Daniya Nizami, the film has gone on floors and features Addi Adeal, Perveen Akbar, Shahnawaz Zaidi, Amna Malik, Hira Khan and others aside from Amna and Affan.
