Balu Mahi is fast making its way to our must-watch list and Sadaf Kanwal's recent disclosure is a big part of it.

In conversation with Images, when asked about her part in the upcoming film, the model said: "My role is of a fun woman who is the head of a company. She's glamorous but also blunt, for example. she'll be dressed to the nines and end up making a gaffe."

She added that her character, Sharmeen, is an authoritative businesswoman who's also 'mazaydar'.

Delving into further details of her role, Sadaf said, "She likes this man and travels with him throughout the journey [in the film]. The two share a romantic relationship and soon fall in love and my character tries to spend as much time with him as possible as the man she loves is very unpredictable and confused."

The Lux Style Award winner shared that she had a lot of memorable moments during the shoot of the film, one of them being when she shot her first scene with director Haissam Hussain.

"It was my first day at the shoot in Hunza and it was the first time I was facing Haissam and the camera, the entire team was standing in front of me, " she started.

"Haissam says to me, 'It's time for your shot, the first scene,' so I said, 'okay.' I got ready and went [to the set]. I was tensed because; it's Haissam, he's such a big director and, whether I'll remember my dialogues or not. I didn't know what'd happen because Ainy [Jaffri] is very good and she had been working [on the Balu Mahi shoot] for the past few days and this was my first experience. But when I did my scene Haissam paused and then everyone clapped," Sadaf recalled.

They were impressed by the first-timer and said she did a "really good job."

In an earlier interview the model had expressed her excitement at being a part of the project. "Many models gave the audition but I was the luckiest to be roped in. Osman Khalid Butt, Ainy Jaffri and I play lead roles in the movie. I'm quite comfortable acting in this film and I'm not nervous. I've previously done a drama serial but it's yet to go on air," she said.

Balu Mahi features Osman Khalid Butt, Ainy Jaffri, Sadaf Kanwal and a cameo appearance by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. It is set for release on February 10, 2017.
