When she asked about her debut in B-town, the actress replied that director Mudassar Aziz approached her with the HBJ script when he saw her pictures on Internet and she totally liked the script and gave her nod.

Also, the Pak actress said she felt very glad to associate with a good script, a great director and talented technicians in her debut Bollywood movie.

Working with Bollywood reminds  her of her family, she noted while adding that because here people contribute their respective work to the film as family members rather than as professionals. 

The Pakistani actress shared her country’s stories and their way of life with her cast members. Her co-star Ali Fazal said Momal was the one who entertained everyone on the set during shoots. She was the jaan of the whole HBJ team.

Momal Sheikh said Mahira, Mawra and Fawad will never become competitors to her because the actress didn’t believe in the sense of competition and it sucks the fun out of work. She also confirmed no to do sex scenes, bikini scenes or kissing scenes in any of her movies.  

The actress said that every one of them is doing their best to put their motherland high on the map and merely to be a part in B-town is a huge achievement in Pakistan.

The Pakistani actress was born to a Punjabi family settled in Karachi. She is the daughter of actor Javed Sheikh and married to Nadir in 2012.

Momal Sheikh’s debut film Happy Bhag Jayegi will hit theatres worldwide on 19th Aug.


Movies are shot in light, but projected on screens in darkness in theatres to give hope and entertainment to its viewers. Ever since I realised this, I'm aspiring to make my work entertaining to people in both my presence and absence. I believe a writer learns more from his readers.
