While some of our stars set their sights on Bollywood, Komal Rizvi went a step further.
The singer turned actress recently announced at a luncheon this weekend that she will be taking on a lead role in an upcoming Hollywood flick titled Afreen.
Speaking to Images, Rizvi shares, "I'm really excited to have been given this opportunity, it's the first time a Pakistani will be doing the title role in an international film. I'm leaving for Toronto in a couple of days; I'm very focused on doing a good job and I just hope I make Pakistani proud."
"The message of the movie is very pro-Pakistan and anti-terrorism," she adds.
The movie is being directed by a Canadian-Indian filmmaker, Ashish Chanana and shooting starts 2 October.
