Mahira Khan reveals that she was the first choice for Hina in ‘Kamli’

News flash

Sometimes, when you don't get what you want, the thing you actually get instead actually ends up being so much better. This certainly rings true in casting. Often, directors or producers go into a project knowing exactly which actor they want for a role. However, if that actor decides to turn their offer down, then they're forced to move onto the next candidate – who might actually be a better fit for the role. One such actor who wasn’t the first choice for a role but absolutely nailed it anyways is Saba Qamar. Apparently, the actress wasn’t the first choice for her role as Hina in Kamli. During an interview for the promotion of her film Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad, Mahira Khan revealed how she was the first choice to play Hina. She said, “Yes, the character Sarmad wrote while thinking about me but that was not meant for me. Whoever did it, did a great job.”
