After making her debut on home soil, up and coming Pakistani actress Saeeda Imtiaz has said that she hopes to make an appearance in the Indian film industry. Imtiaz, who plays a lead role in “Kaptaan,” a film based on the life of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, has said she wants her second film to be from Bollywood.

Imtiaz has suggested that both countries extend a hand of friendship to each other. While she may not yet by well-known as an actress, Imtiaz has made an impression as a model. With the release of the upcoming film “Kaptaan,” she hopes to gain more popularity among local cinema enthusiasts. She has said that when ever she makes her Bollwyood debut, she wants it to be with either Salman Khan or Abhishek Bachchan.

Let's hope that the first movie gets released first...since from what we hear, "Kaptaan" is not even close to final release.

Barbara Striesand (famous singer and actress) slept on a couch in a friend's Manhattan New York office so she could audition and look for work every day in the entertainment business. The harder I try, the luckier I get.

It seems this lady is playing the role of Jemima in Kaptaan. However, I don't think she can get the role of a heroin in a 'A Class' Indian movie on merit, as she does not seem to have the kind of looks we prefer in quality actresses from Bollywood. Therefore, she is trying to play the same Pakistan Card which Meera played and failed miserably at. I think with her looks she can be a great addition to Pakistani Dramas, which are a million times better and thought provoking than the plastic movies made in Bollywood

She will probably play the role of Jamima Khan. I am sure the film will be released closer to elections.
