One of Pakistan’s most influential and progressive producer and screenwriter, Fizza Ali Meerza is nothing short of a wonder woman. In the days of the revival of cinema when direction was a bit hazy, Fizza came up with a script that put Pakistani cinema on the map with her comedy feature film debut Na Maloom Afraad. And she is a force, unstoppable; she pushes her limits into satirical comedy with her second blockbuster Actor in Law, this time targeting the deficiencies in our culture. With Khel Khel Mein being the most recent one to release, her creative independency brought flocks of viewers to packed cinemas and set a new benchmark for content in the industry. Fizza joins MAG for a quick and fun rapid fire. Here are 60 seconds from her life. Excerpts:

If your life was a movie, what genre would it be?


One thing you can eat any time of the day?


An actor you would want to swap lives with

I wouldn’t, I’m very happy with my life.

If you were to run away and start a new life, where would you go?

Somewhere in the country side, living a farmer’s life.

Favourite book of all time

The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak.

One ridiculous thing you grew up believing as a child?

That I was brought down by a fairy in a basket.

What is on top of your bucket list at the moment?

My next film.

If you could only wear one colour forever, which one would it be?


One outrageous dream?

I’m a dreamer, I believe everything is possible.
