Meera Jee set to return to stage show with ‘Selfie Queen’
Veteran actress Meera Jee is all set to appear in new stage drama ‘Selfie Queen’ starting from 11th September at the Sabina Theatre in Faisalabad.
The stage show is written and directed by M Safdar and Shahbaz Rashid.
The cast of the drama includes Azeem Vicky, Aslam Chattha, Shahid Hashmi, Gamma BA, Anisha Khan, Sheila Chaudhry and Manahil Noor, among others.
In 2019 Saqib Malik’s ‘Baaji’ was released, which also marked Meera Jee’s return on the big screen. Baaji has been screened at several international film festivals including the UK Asian Film Festival, the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival, the DC South Asian Film Festival, the Mosaic Film Festival, and many others.
The film has also bagged two awards at the Canadian film festival.
Earlier in August, Meera applied for financial assistance of Rs40 million under the Artist Support Fund, which has been launched by the Punjab Information and Cultural Department. She claimed that her finances were in dire straits.
The request was rejected by the council. The chairperson of Artist Support Fund MPA Sadia Sohail Rana said that the fund is for poor artistes and not for someone who owns an apartment in Dubai.
In the petition, Meera claimed that she suffered a loss of around $100,000 after her foreign shows were cancelled.
