If there’s one thing we know about Amna Ilyas, it’s that when she focuses her energy on something, it shows. A woman who exuded grace during her modeling days and shown her versatility as an actress in roles such as 7 Din Mohabbatin, Good Morning Karachi and Zinda Baagh has blown us all out of the water with her dance moves and expressions in Khilti Kali! For those of you who don’t know, Baaji The Film, Amna’s latest project has been making strides on social media for quite some time. From seeing her various pictures adorning traditional clothing for her promotions, a newly released glimpse of one of the film’s songs has one swooning from the start!
Renditions of age old songs are usually considered a hit and miss. However Khilti Kali (Don’t be Silly) revival through Zeb Bangash’s upbeat voice has stayed true to the classic melody of Runa Laila’s voice that has trickled down for generations. Baaji’s take on the song has added a contemporary twist, allowing the generation of today to make it their classic for the times to come.
Baaji The Film is directed by Saqib Malik and it’s set to hit theatres nationwide on June 28th!
