I am proud of the whole team and the cast."

Short film Snapshot was a collaborative work between Turkey and Pakistan talents. While the producers, director, writers are from Pakistan, co-actors Mert Kilic and Ayhan Isik, and the music composer were from Turkey. The film was produced by Khan, marking her debut as a film producer. It was directed by Ali.

The Gold Movie Awards are organised by an international film festival based in London. The Los Angeles Lift-Off Film Festival is organised by UK-based Lift-Off Global Network which promotes the works of indie film creators around the world.

Snapshot told the story of a Canadian girl (played by Khan) who gets stuck Turkey's capital Istanbul because of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. According to a press release, the story was meant to emphasise "platonic relationships" and "bring to the fore the importance of friendship".
