She's going to be playing a "fighter girl" in the movie, which is being directed by Abu Aleeha.

Hot on the heels of Shot Cut’s announcement comes yet another film from director Abu Aleeha, but this time its an action movie starring Sonya Hussyn.

The actor’s guise is evident — if you squint very, very hard — in the selectively out of focus project reveal on her Instagram, where she is punching the daylights out of someone.

Other than the glove, details are scarce of the project titled Daadal, which had completed a shooting spell during the last few weeks in Karachi. The film is produced by Neha Laaj, the producer of the upcoming film Chaudhry – The Martyr, based on the life of SP Mohammad Aslam Khan aka Chaudhry Aslam, which is set for release on May 27 by Hum Films.

Daadal also stars Mohsin Abbas Haider as a really bad cop (bad cops are very much in these days, it seems), Maira Khan, Adnan Shah Tipu, Shamoon Abbasi and Rizwan Jaffri.

The film concludes its remaining shooting spell in March, for a release this year according to the producers. Hopefully, it is not announced as another Eid release.

Hussyn said shooting is going very, very well. "I'm playing a fighter girl," she explained to Images, adding that her character comes from a Baloch family and lives in the fictional Dadal.

"The characteristics of Baloch people are that they are very strong headed and that don’t stand for wrong things," she said, adding that her character has gone through a lot in life and now isn't going to take a step back. "If there’s any injustice in her life, she will punch right back," said Hussyn, who is having a blast filming.

The cast and crew have been scouting out locations in Lyari and visiting people there as part of the pre-production process. I've even taken boxing classes, proper ones, remarked Hussyn. "The blood and sweat put in, the injuries that have been suffered, they're all going to be worth it once the film comes out," she said.

The actor was all praises for director Abu Aleeha. She said he's into a different type of cinema from the usual commercial projects and that with a good budget, good production and big creativity margin, the director will be able to do a lot. She's "101% sure" the project will be great.

That tattoo is looking awful. Very bad decision. She will not get any lead roles in family drama serials.

@Soniye Tu Auder Te La Tatoos are a personal choice so leave her alone. She is smarter than you and courageous.

If Mohsin Abbas Haider is the male lead, than it is a flop venture before even it is out. Nobody would like to see that man having not an iota of hero material.

@Soniye Tu Auder Te La , its better that she doesnt. Family dramas are totally cringe worthy and toxic

Looking at her boxing skills in video, i dont think this movie will be hit

so just like her every role ...would she be behaving like a wanna be indian actress?

@M. Saeed that is so stupid and your comment does not even make sense. Not all characters are hero oriented , depicting a next door neighbor guy should look like one

I'm seeing Pakistanis want some change and can not digest it when it is done.

@Junaid, she is not a boxer by birth nor does she belong to a boxing family, she is learning and trying to bring some change. Hope you can digest it.
