When Aamina Sheikh was smitten by Shabana Azmi’s presence
Mumbai: Aamina Sheikh’s portrayal of the sacrificing Aiman of Zindagi’s ‘Maat’ has won her an ocean of fan following in the country.
The actress from across the border, who will soon appear in ‘Ishq Ghumshuda’ was apparently elated to see Shabana Azmi attending the 1st Sindh International Film Festival in Karachi.
Expressing her excitement, Aamina said, “I had the privilege of meeting Shabana Azmi in Karachi at the 1st Sindh International Film Festival where both my films 'Seedlings' (aka 'Lamha') and 'Josh' were screened. I came to know that Shabana Jee made it a point to watch both the films in its entirety and had very generous things to say. I was present at the Q&A session of the film 'Josh' at the end of which Shabana Azmi emerged from the audience. I was absolutely thrilled to see her and was smitten by her presence. She had the most wonderful, enthusiastic and encouraging things to say about the film, performances and the festival both to me as well as the press. I feel very honored and humbled that an actor of Shabana Azmi's stature who we look up to and are constantly inspired by, acknowledged us to such an extent”.
