The trailer of the film ‘Cake’ featuring Amna Sheikh, Sanam Saeed and Adnan Malik in lead roles has been released today. The trailer of the family-drama movie suggests the movie is conceivably different from the mainstream entertainment industry of Pakistan.
The movie also features Mohammed Ahmed, Beo Rana Zafar, Faris Khalid and an extended cameo appearance by Mikaal Zulfiqar on the sidelines.
Amna Sheikh and Sanam Saeed share an interesting bond of siblings in the family. They both belong to a family where the members share a deep emotional relationship with each other. The trailer also has a couple of humorous moments to lighten the mood as the story is filled with many dramatic family moments.
At the trailer launch ceremony Sanam Saeed said: “Cake is a game changer for me personally. It’s going to be tough picking up another script after this beautifully structured, emotionally charged and humorous script. Cake helped me prepare for grievances and reminded me of the importance of family. The process challenged me as an actor and has helped me grow. The laughter and tears in Cake are from the heart.”
Aamina Sheikh said: “Can’t wait to serve the whole Cake to our audience; I’m certain it’ll ring true to home and bring authenticity to our Pakistani audience. Cake is definitely a stepping stone towards forming an identity of Pakistani cinema.”
The lead male actor, Adnan Malik said, “When something is made with pure intentions and true love, the love shines through to the end of the product, whether it’s a cake or a film (or in this case both in one!) Get ready for an emotional journey!”
The director of the movie Asim Abbasi asserted that since the movie does not have the flair of commercialism in it, he hopes his innovation pleases the cinema audience.
“It initially took me some time to adjust to the way things work in Pakistan. I aim to bring innovation to Pakistani cinema, which is why Cake varies from a typical dance around trees film as it revolves around family drama. I hope that Cake works at the box office so that more people have the confidence to make different kinds of films”, Asim Abbasi said earlier.
