She may have swirled and twirled a little in Yasir Nawaz’s Wrong Number,but model Tooba Siddiqui is set to launch her film career with a full-fledged role in Mehreen Jabbar’s Dobara Phir Se.
“My role in [the film] is very New York-ish,” Tooba said to Images with a laugh. “It’s a story about five characters based in New York and I am one of them. It’s not a special appearance but it’s a very important role. I don’t want to reveal the story but people will definitely relate to it.”
Working with Jabbar was been a great experience for the first timer:
“Mehreen is a fantastic director. She made us do a lot of rehearsals to get into character, so she know what she wants. I have worked with her before, so it was great to work with her again. When Mehreen called me up to offer the role, I said ‘yes’ in a blink!”
The cast of Dobara Phir Se also includes Ali Kazmi, Adeel Husain, Shaz Khan, Atiqa Odho, Sanam Saeed and Hareem Farooq, The rom-com’s release date is yet to be announced.
