Mahira Khan is bringing back her magic this Independence Day. The actor is stepping into the world of telefilms with a tribute to Lieutenant General Nigar Johar of the Pakistan Army. The teaser of the telefilm “Ek Hai Nigar” has been released. The film is based on the life of Johar, the country’s first Lieutenant General, who was promoted to the rank of the first Three-Star General of the Pakistan Army. At the same time, she became Pakistan’s first female surgeon general.
The Prince Charming star, who herself is very ‘honored’ to play the role of a living legend, turned to her Instagram on August 14 and shared a teaser of her much-anticipated biopic. “Eik Hai Nigar,” begins Mahira in the caption, highlighting the title of the telefilm.
“Honored to be able to play a woman I admire so much. Pakistan Army’s first female Three-Stars General. ‘Aik Hai Nigar’ traces the life and career of Lieutenant General Nigar Johar. What a life, what a story… to know her, is to know one of the greatest we have amongst us. Bismillah,” she ends her note.
Mahira Khan has played the role of Nigar Johar in the telefilm while her opposite actor Bilal Ashraf will be seen in the male lead role. The story of the telefilm “Ek Hai Nigar” has been written by Umairah Ahmed and is directed by Adnan Sarwar and produced under the banner of Nina Kashif and Mahira Khan’s production company Sulfur Films.
In addition, the Pakistan Army Public Relations Department (ISPR) has paid homage to Lieutenant General Nigar Johar through this film. The telefilm will be aired on the private TV channel, but its release date has not yet been announced.
