The filmmaker shared an Instagram post and wrote about her upcoming film, “My feature directorial debut, starring Amrit Kaur, Hamza Haq and Nimra Bucha, [is] inspired from my one-person play of the same name Me, My Mom & Sharmila. I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am for this cast and how proud I am of my incredible producing team without whom I would not be here”.
“It takes a village and there are so many people without whom we couldn’t have gotten here. Stay tuned y’all”, the filmmaker concluded.
Nimra Bucha also shared an Instagram story and confirmed her appearance on the show, she wrote, “So happy!”
Me, My Mom & Sharmila is produced by Jason Levangie and Marc Tetreault for Shut Up & Colour Pictures and Andria Wilson Mirza for Baby Daal Productions (co-founded by Fawzia with her wife). In late 2022, the production will start in Pakistan, Canada, and Nova Scotia.
