The next time I saw her was in another drama Shehr e Ajnabi, co starring with Ahmad Ali. Yes, the male lead of the freshly released Pakistani film Laal Kabootar.

Natasha Kundi: What is your role in the film Laal Kabootar?

Mansha Pasha: My role is that of Aliya, a woman whose life is drastically altered when something happens on the streets of Karachi. 

NK: Did you research or shadow someone for your role? 

MP: I did some research on the past couple of years in Karachi. I also shadowed a few people in my personal life who reminded me of the character. 

NK: You have worked with Ahmed Ali in dramas before, what was it like to work with him in a film?

MP: It was wonderful. Ahmed and I are good friends which became only better while filming. We often gave each other tips and a lot of support while promoting the film, which is quite a hefty task in itself.

NK: The film was shot in 38 days only, what was the experience like?

MP: It was a wonderful experience. I feel quite blessed as its not often that there is a meeting of minds with the outcome also exceeding expectations. 

NK: How challenging was it to work with Kamal Khan as he is a different kind of a director? 

MP: It was a unique experience. Kamal does a lot of rehearsals and likes to throw the actor/character in unexpected situations to keep the spontaneity alive. It was challenging and a great learning experience.

NK: What other projects are you working on? 

MP: I am currently finishing up a project for ARY Digital and reading scripts for the future projects.

NK: Which do you find more interesting to work in, Dramas or Films? Which ones your favourite and why?

MP: Its the role that’s interesting to me. I keep wanting to do new and challenging things be it drama or film. But I do feel the two mediums are so different which is why characters can be explored very differently.

NK: What’s the one event that you can never forget while shooting for this film.

MP: There’s one scene that was super stressful and a turning point of the film. We only had 2 hours to shoot it. It was very windy and the dust kept getting stuck in my lenses. I ended up taking off my lenses to do the scene and finally got it right.

NK: What message would you like to give to the audiences?

MP: Please go and watch the film. Trust me, It’s an experience and a half. You will enjoy yourself. Much love.
