A theatre artiste herself, the actress said in a statement: “The interesting thing about Manto is that everyone has something to say about him. Ever since the film has been announced, I have had several conversations with friends from the theatre who have performed Manto’s short stories, journalists who know about him or just people who are avid readers of his work.

“These conversations have been lovely. They have given me titbits of anecdotal information which are priceless and hard to find in any book.”
