 Director Sabiha Sumar’s ‘Good Morning Karachi’ is finally set to see the light of the day in Pakistan. After doing rounds on the international film festival circuit for almost two years the film is slated local release in January 2015.
The film stars Amna Ilyas as Rafina  an ambitious girl who leaves behind the small lanes of Karachi’s Shah Faisal Colony and joins the glamorous but cut throat world of fashion.
Sawera Nadeem, Saba Hameed, Farhan Ali Agha,and Khalid Malik are also among the cast.
In an interview with HIP, Farhan Ali Agha talked briefly about the movie and his character.
Earlier titled ‘Rafina’, the film follows the journey of a model. Agha plays the role of a shrewd, street smart advertising agency head in the movie who hires Rafina (Amna Ilyas) and gives offers her a job.
“I worked for this movie around two and half years ago. It is predominantly in English and was made overseas only. It first released in Europe and was later featured in quite a few foreign film festivals. But it’s finally going to release in Karachi on January 1st and I’m sure you must be as excited about it as I am.”  
The actor also shared that his wife, Uzma, who is often his biggest critic loved his performance in ‘Good Morning Karachi’.
Agha says that working on the film was a challenge but he learned a great deal from the experience as the international crew forced him to push him to do his best.
“Who is Fahad? the assistant director would ask me when I was on set. He did not want to here rote learned lines but a deeper understanding of who I perceived this man to be. I described the character that was not written in the dialogue or stage direction,” he said. According to Agha working on the film was a step in the right direction in his long term goals of breaking.
