Pakistani actress Humaima Malick is expected to star alongside Emraan Hashmi in a film tentatively titled ‘Shaatir’.
The actress who starred in Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Bol’ (2011), won critical acclaim and rumours of her switching to Bollywood were rife. A screen test for the new film has already taken place and has impressed all including director Kunal Deshmukh.
“The producers as well as the director won’t be ready to talk about her casting yet, since the nitty-gritty of the contract is being worked out. And they don’t want to jump the gun before signing her formally, since she is from Pakistan and no one knows what kind of issues might crop up,” an insider told Times Of India.
Kunal Deshmukh says, “It’s too early to talk about it. I can only reveal to you that Humaima has indeed (screen) tested with us.”
