Sajal Ahad Mir, formerly Sajal Ali, is in London shooting for Jemima Goldsmith's What’s Love Got To Do With It? and making us proud.

Her inclusion in the cast was confirmed last month after a lot of speculation and hype. The last non-Pakistani movie she starred in was the 2017 Mom alongside Sridevi.

She and Goldsmith both posted pictures together on their Instagram accounts.

Goldsmith also posted a picture on her Instagram Stories with Azmi.

The movie is set between London and South Asia, exploring cross-cultural conflicts of love and marriage.

“It’s a story of identities,” Kapur had told Variety in November. “It’s about cultural clashes and it’s a comedy, but it’s about hiding behind an identity and how identities can become tribal, and how tribalism can lead to clashes and fundamentalism. It’s a rom-com, but based on this fundamental idea of people adopting identities out of fear of marginalisation.”
