Film debut

It is now confirmed that actor Usama Khan will star alongside Yumna Zaidi in the sports film Nayab. This will be the first time the two will be co-starring together on the big screen. Yumna revealed in aqn interview that her character Nayab is a girl from Karachi who dreams of becoming a cricketer, but is hesitant to follow her dreams, fearing patriarchal society backlash. “It’s a brilliant story and it is meaningful,” the Tere Bin actress gushed. “The whole team is trying their best to execute it the way it should be. Now that we’ve chosen good content, we want to do justice with it so that the audience also enjoys it when they go to the cinema.” Speaking about how much she has been practicing to learn how to play cricket, admitting that she had never picked up a bat or ball before this shoot. “I believe that cricket is almost a craze in Pakistan but I don’t know why or how but I had never picked a bat or ball before this shoot. I have been practicing a lot. From the initial ABCs of cricket to practice matches on the final pitch, it’s been a long process and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
