‘We need to show empowering characters on screen’: Sonya Hussyn speaks about her next film ‘Daadal’

Her next feature film is ‘Daadal’ where she plays a boxer and, in an exclusive conversation with Fashion Times Magazine, Sonya gives us a sneak peek into the world of ‘Daadal’.

Speaking about her character, Sonya said, “This time around, I play a fighter girl. The name of my character is Haya Baloch. She is someone who has gone through so much in her life that she isn’t afraid to put those people in their place who try to bully her. Don’t mess with her or she will punch you in your face. This trait comes very naturally to Baloch’s (chuckles). It’s a strong-headed and confident character, Haya knows her goals and how to achieve them.”

 

She further spoke about her drastic transformation for the sports drama, “I enjoyed preparing for the role. For a month I did extensive workshops and training sessions under the supervision of boxing experts. I visited places where girls are professionally trained. However, it was sad to witness the grass route problems faced by women boxers. Not just that, they aren’t supported by the federation according to their passions.”

Hussyn was all praises for the hatke director Abu Aleeha, “What is great about Aleeha is his approach to tap into diverse genres and brew up fresh content. Unlike the flock of directors aiming to make commercial potboilers only. I was super impressed when he offered me the script. The character excited me to a huge extent. I feel we need to show empowering characters on screen and depict the struggle and journey of every Pakistani girl.”

 

The Saarab actress concluded the conversation on an optimistic note, “Daadal’ is a full-fleshed action film. I hope, all the blood, bruises, sweat and the intense training that has gone into the making of this film, be it the actors, trainers and coaches will eventually pay off once the film releases in cinemas.”
