The announcement was recently made in the international publication Variety, which Mirza shared saying “My feature directorial debut starring Amrit Kaur, Hamza Haq and Nimra Bucha in this feature 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.”
