Nazia Hassan was a Pakistani Pop singer, noted for her super hit albums that were also popular around the world. She died 15 years ago at the age of 35 suffering from cancer. Knowing about this singing legend through her close friends, Alia showed good interest in this subject and done some research on her.
Impressed by what she has known, Alia fell in love the pop personality. Alia further discussed her plan of making a biopic out this pop sensation and offered director close to her to come up with a good script.
Since Nazia’s life was some way closer to her’s, Alia felt that she can only be the one to carry this character.
With biopics like Paan Singh Tomar, Mary Kom, Dirty Picture and Bhaag Milka Bhaag receiving critical appreciation, Alia has decided to this role.
What to be noted is that Nazia Hassan in 1981 originally sang “Disco Deewane” which got remixed in Alia’s debut film Student of the Year.
