Frieha Altaf Reignites Her Acting Career As Her Daughter Also Catches The Acting Bug!


Many of us know and love Frieha Altaf from her acting stint in the sitcom ROSIE where she played the jealous and ever so talkative love interest of Moin Akhtar. Back in the 80s, this comedy-drama was all the rage. But we didn’t see much of Frieha Altaf on screen after ROSIE.

Well, she was her hyperactive and charming self behind the screen as a PR mogul and model headhunter extraordinaire.  Altaf recently returned to acting with a cameo in Lahore Se Aagey and a supporting role in Javed Sheikh’s Wajood. She’s just recently shot another guest appearance in Saqib Malik’s upcoming Meera-starrer Baji and now, has landed a role in Asim Raza’s romance film Parey Hut Love.

This time around, Frieha will be sharing space with her daughter Parisheh James, who’s decided to try her luck at acting alongside her mother.

Speaking to a publication, Frieha said that, “One of the best things I’ve done this year has to be PHL, besides the social causes I’ve taken up (under the #MeinBhi banner). It’s clearly larger-than-life, it’s grand, the locations are phenomenal, but the best part has to be Asim and his team. We’ve all been like a family, from the makeup boy to the ADs; I’m so looking forward to it. Also it’s extra special because Imran Aslam’s written the script and my last project with him, Rosie was a massive hit.

I’ll be honest with you, it’s been hard for me to schedule my work around the shooting schedules, but once we started shooting, it was so much fun, I realised I wanted to do more of it. It’s great to go back, and I took that conscious decision (of going back), not only to acting but theatre, painting and sculpturing.”

Exploring the young generation’s commitment phobia, Parey Hut Love (PHL) features an extensive star cast comprising of producer Sheheryar Munawar, Maya Ali, Mahira Khan, Ahmad Ali Butt, Zara Noor Abbas as well as Meera in a musical track. With the third spell of the film wound up in Bahawalpur, the last leg of shoot is set to begin in Karachi.
