Kubra Khan recently discussed her latest film, Abhi, which premiered during Eid Al-Adha.

She emphasised its focus on minority issues and a significant “connection with Kashmir”.

In an interview with Arab News, Kubra described her character in Abhi as a flagbearer for Kashmir’s cause. She talked about the film’s unique themes.

She explained: “It’s predominantly about a connection, somehow with Kashmir.

“We speak about how the people who are powerful get away with everything and anybody who might not have that power in their hand might just be forgotten easily.

“I hope people recognise the fact that every life does matter at the end of the day.”

Abhi, which hit Pakistani cinemas on June 17, 2024, is directed by Asad Mumtaz.

The film also stars Goher Mumtaz, who is recognised as one of the founding members of the rock band Jal.

The movie is co-produced by Ali Chaudhry and Goher Mumtaz, with Khalid Iqbal serving as the executive producer.

Shoaib Rabbani is credited with writing the screenplay.

Kubra Khan praised the film’s soundtrack, calling it gorgeous, and commended Goher for his fantastic job with the songs.

Describing her character Zara, she noted the similarities to her real-life personality.

“My character is very similar to who I am and that’s probably because that’s how I made it.

“I am a little sarcastic, a little funny, and I am adventurous. I kind of just get on with it and push through everything that I want to do in life.

“The way she (her character) speaks as well while talking, she would say something completely off.”

Kubra Khan is known for portraying strong female characters and believes that strength can manifest in both silence and loudness.

Kubra said that she has played many characters who aren’t fighting the world but are fighting their inner struggles.

This internal battle empowers women to stand up for themselves in any capacity.

She also acknowledged the effort she put into improving her pronunciation for Abhi.

Kubra said that fixing her accent was difficult, but necessary as she did not want her performance to be overshadowed by incorrect pronunciation.

The actress has also dealt with social media criticism, but she no longer lets negative comments affect her.

She said: “I realised you can’t make everyone happy.”
