  • I wanted to make a very naked and true story … Often we see female characters being as good a person as possible, Mina is a normal human being. She is selfish but everyone in the movie is quite selfish. She is always running after being loved. [Despite everything] she keeps after it because she doesn’t know what love is.
    Iram Haq
