Ushna Shah is a household name in Pakistan thanks to her many hit drama serials (case in point is Bashar Momin and Ab Kar Meri Rafugari) and fun telefilms, but will her big screen debut be as fruitful as her television career? Let’s find out.
Having a wide range of projects alongside seasoned makers and co-actors, this RJ-turned-actress is truly fond of taking up new challenges. Speaking of challenges, the actress will soon be seen playing the central role in filmmaker and musician, Jawad Bashir’s romantic comedy, Teri Meri Love Story.
TMLS revolves around a young and chirpy girl who is struggling to find her Prince Charming. Apart from Shah, the film also features Mohib Mirza, Omer Shahzad, Uzma Khan, Mohsin Abbas Haider, Ahmed Abdul Rehman, Salman Shahid and Leyla Zuberi; TMLS is all set to release in your nearest cinema screens this Friday on the 2nd of September.
Meanwhile Ushna Shah is busy with a number of projects which she can’t talk about right now, but what we do know is that one of her untitled next will go on floors this Fall.
What to expect from Teri Meri Love Story?

What was initially supposed to be Jawad Bashir’s monumental return to the silver screen after the failure of his debut directorial, Maya, is now looking like a lukewarm one as the post-production of TMLS has been heavily criticized post the release of the film’s trailer.
While the Bashar Momin actress refused to comment over the film’s production quality, she did approve of the trailer and is happy with the team’s efforts.
“Honestly, I was really happy with the trailer. Everybody looked great and I thought Jawad bhai did a fantastic job,” the actress remarked. “However, that does not deny the fact that there is always room for improvement in every project I do. There’s room for improvement in my acting and there’s room for improvement in other parts of the film too. I try not to focus on things that aren’t in my control. My job was to act, and I’m answerable when that receives criticism.”
That said, Ushna believes that TMLS offers the audience a unique love triangle that will prove to be a breath of fresh air.
“The film is a good, simple love story that’s meant to take you away from your problems for a good two hours. So go to the cinema to have a good time.”

The stunning actress seems to have had the time of her lifetime with her co-actors as she was all praises for the gifted bunch.
“The experience was definitely a learning one. It was my debut film and it’s been an honor to work with such talented people. I remember once we needed a huge set for a shot and as soon as it got read, the weather started changing. There was nothing we could do, so the crew members started blasting music and we all ended up dancing and partying on set,” the actress smiled. “I’m in touch with all of my co-stars. I’m fairly close with Uzma though. We meet when we get a chance and I think she’s awesome.”
Shah further revealed that her character in the film breaks stereotypes regarding women in Pakistan. It is a woman-centric film, breaking norms of commercial cinema which mostly revolves around men, and Shah plays an empowered young girl, who is not suppressed by anything whatsoever.
Women and their portrayal on television
Television’s landscape is changing right before our very eyes as we see women being portrayed as strong beings in drama serials. Since Ushna Shah has been part of this process – from playing the damsel in distress in Bashar Momin to the rather brave girl in Ab Kar Meri Rafugari – she wishes wishes women to be portrayed exactly the way they are.
“I think it’s our job to empower women and show them play strong characters as well as weak ones. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and all kinds of personalities. We are majestic beings, and it’s time our industry started celebrating that.”
However, Shah also believes that all artists can do, is utilize the platform that they have, they certainly cannot educate your children on your behalf.
“I think it’s unfair to expect people to live up to certain standards; it’s not our [actors] job to raise people’s children,” the actress stated when asked to comment on the responsibility of public figures. “We are humans we make mistakes and we live our lives, however, it’s important to use the platform we have to raise our voice against injustices.”
What’s next for Ushna Shah!

While Ushna had been enjoying a well-deserved break after the completion of TMLS’s shoot; she’s back to the “grind” (well, that’s what she prefers to call it). Refusing to delve into any details about what she’s up to at the moment, Ushna did open up about her second feature film that is a Crew Motion Pictures’ production and will be directed by Aabis Raza. Co-starring Uzair Jaswal, Sana Fakhar, Ayaz Samoo, Aamir Qureshi, Asif Raza Mir, Asma Abbas and others, the film will go on floors this Fall.
“I signed this film because Aabis Bhai had faith in me and believed that I fit the role. The story is young and the cast is an incredible amalgamation of talent and experience,” the actress quite excitedly told HIP. “From Asif Raza Mir to Asma Abbas, and of course Uzair; I felt this set would have a lot of positive energy which would make the project fun, which is essentially what our work is all about.”

In an earlier conversation with HIP, the film’s male lead and the singing prodigy, Uzair Jaswal revealed he was a big fan of the leading lady of his upcoming film and the feelings seem to be mutual.
“I’m excited to work with Uzair. He is a lovely person and very talented. Hopefully I’ll get free acoustic concerts throughout the shoot,” Shah joked.
This film will again see Ushna as an outspoken girl who gets “reality-check” when she’s introduced to love. about the importance of love. While the character of her second film may seem similar to what we’ll see her do in TMLS, this fierce young performer hopes to be a part of an action-thriller that is something along the lines of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt starrer Mr. & Mrs. Smith. We would love to see a Pakistani actress essay an action hero!
