Pakistani model, singer and actress Meesha Shafi, who made her movie debut in Mira Nair's THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST, will now be seen in her maiden Bollywood venture. The actress is playing a character named Perizaad, best friend to Farhan Akhtar's character of Milkha Singh in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG.
Excited about her upcoming movie, Meesha says, ''Our cultural heritage and stories are so deeply rooted that it is only natural to relate to the cinema being made here. Art is definitely a universal language and just as Bollywood has a huge audience in Pakistan; Pakistani music has a vast listenership in India.'' Further, she adds, ''Both countries are doing an immense service by bridging gaps and reaching out to the people. In fact I would say that Bollywood and Pakistan have an age-old relationship.''
