In a recent interview, Sanam Saeed talked about her upcoming film:
“Umro Ayyar is based on an Urdu literature novel but we are not making a film on that novel, it’s a version of it, a folklore-inspired superhero film that discovers the character of Umro Ayyar in a new-age way.”
She further added,
“There is a bit of Umro Ayyar’s backstory, integrated with modern times, how in today’s day and age, you can incorporate Umro Ayyar.”
