1996 saw the release of ��Fire,�۪ starring Shabana Azmi. Directed by Deepa Mehta, the controversial film focused on two lonely daughters-in-law as they fall into a lesbian relationship. Fast forward 20 years and Azmi returns to another lesbian movie, according to Bollywood Hungama.
Pakistani writer, director and actress Fawzia Mirza’s American production titled ��Signature Move�۪ (2017) will see Azmi playing a mother to a lesbian daughter, played by Mirza. The film itself looks to be somewhat autobiographical to Mirza as she describes herself as a “Lesbian, Muslim, Pakistani, actor, activist, writer, producer, lawyer and creature of passion.”
Azmi�۪s role as the mother follows her character as she watches television soaps all day long and seems oblivious of the fact that her daughter is a lesbian and in a relationship with Mexican girl who is a wrestler.
