After returning to the TV screen with Sadqay Tumhare, the much-admired Mahira Khan is now ready to grace the silver screen with two upcoming films.

In a recent interview with INSTEP, the stunning actor talked about her upcoming feature film, Bin Roye, which has a stellar cast including Humayun Saeed, Zeba Bakhtiar, Javed Sheikh and Ameena Rana Khan.

The other project, a film by Asim Raza about two friends, stars Adeel Hussain and Sheheryar Munnawar in the lead. Currently untitled, this film is still in its initial stage.

Speaking about the film Bin Roye Mahira said, “It’s a full blown feature film. I love commercial cinema. I like watching a Ram Leela. I like my dance and song. And I have danced in Bin Roye.”

She further added, “I’ve given Bin Roye everything and I’m hoping that people enjoy something different coming from Pakistani cinema.”

The film is also being turned into a drama series, but the actor is not thrilled by the idea.

"It’s a business idea that they want to try out, though personally as an actor it’s not something I enjoy. I’ve given this film my blood, sweat and tears. We often joke that this film is a Titanic, a Mughal e Azam; we’ve been making it forever.”

Bin Roye is expected to hit the cinema screens on January 9, 2015.
