Saima Baloch is set to star in the upcoming Punjabi film Super Punjabi.

It is reported that she and Mohsin Abbas Haider are the film’s lead female and male stars.

The pair have finished shooting the film.

In addition to playing the lead role, Saima will also appear in three songs that are dedicated to her character.

The actress hopes to introduce another “filmy persona” to her fans following her performance as the adored Rajjo in The Legend of Maula Jatt.

Talking about Super Punjabi, Saima said:

“In Maula Jatt, my experience was amazing during [the] performance as my work for this film is my ibadat [act of worship].

“Director Abu Aleeha approached me [for the role of the] heroine in Super Punjabi.

“I said yes for the sake of our film industry, and to leave Rajjo behind and create one more filmy character for my country.

“Fans of Rajjo are waiting to see more [of me] on the big screen so yes, I’m doing this film for the people.
