Last year we got to hear that our very own Sajal Aly is going to make her Hollywood debut with Jemima Goldsmith’s upcoming romantic comedy ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’.
The film which is finally going to release in Pakistan next month, promises to examine the complexity of love in a fun and humorous manner.

The Refreshing Plot:
The story of the movie focuses on the lives of two couples, one of whom is born in London while the other is shown to be Asians, and how their paths unexpectedly cross.
Zoe played by Lily James; a documentary filmmaker plays an integral role in the film as she unsuccessfully attempts to navigate the contemporary dating environment. While on the other hand, Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kazim played by Shahzad Latif chooses to pursue an arranged marriage with Pakistani bride Maymouna, portrayed by Sajal Aly.
The light-hearted rom-com claims to examine the cultural disparities and difficulties that develop when people from various racial and ethnic backgrounds fall in love. It digs into the nuances of relationships, including the sacrifices and compromises that people make for love, as well as the ups and downs that are part of any long-term commitment.
