Ahmed: I learned a lot from my silver screen experience. I can say it was good but was not easy. Because I am a civil engineer and I had no proper idea about village life due to my life style in Lahore city. So I went to village and study about their lifestyle that how they behave and talk etc. After that I went to sell Chawal and Dall for two days on the demand of my producer Akbar Nasir Khan. Because it would help me to portray my character like a pro. And I felt real when I portrayed that character. I would tell you about response which I receive from the audience in one line, “Ap real me wesy hen ya acting ki thi.”
