Veteran actor Sakina Samo who has already proved her metier in acting, direction and production with many hit drama serials to her credit has now ventured on to the big screen. Sakina recently announced the big news that she has been busy for the last six months in making her first feature film titled Waiting (Intezaar).
Sakina took to Twitter to announced the news and release the first look of the film with a poster.
“I always wanted to make films and when the time was right, the call came loud and clear. Making a first feature film with absolute certainty, without thinking of result or reward – that is a labour of love supported by a bit of madness,” she wrote.

Someone who can work with the minimum can work with the most. One who can with the most cannot, inevitably, with the minimum. #notesoncinematography #robertbresson #theartoffilm Me: When you are focused with an absolute certainty, nothing will scare you. #indiefilm #independentcinema #wedidit Yay!
The actress also called her film an indie movie which surely is meant for the world cinema and the poster surely gave the same feels. The film features Samina Ahmed, Khalid Ahmed, Kaif Ghaznavi, Raza Ali Abid and Adnan Jaffar. Written by Bee Gul and music by the band Darvesh, Waiting is Sakima Samo’s directorial debut on the big screen.
The news was well-received by the entertainment industry. Mahira Khan wished her best to the debutant film-maker.
