Mashal Peerzada is from the creatively renowned Peerzada family. The daughter of Salmaan and Jabeen Peerzada, Mashal has been raised in one of the busiest, most influential families as far as Pakistani stage is concerned. Hard as it can be to carve out your own place in a medley of talent within your very home, Mashal's already beginning to shine as a new star within the clan.
Mashal's focus is both on stage - her first love - and film-making. She has studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles. She has a short film and several theatrical productions to her credit, including the foundation of a youth theatre festival in Pakistan.
If the family's talent and Mashal's determination are any indication, she will be reckoned as one of Pakistan's top film-makers and stage producers in the very near future!
Let’s start with introducing you to our readers …how would you describe yourself as a professional, your creative interests and current projects?
My interests lie in writing and directing for the stage and screen. At the moment I am working on a situational comedy for television, for a Pakistan-based production company “Talking Filmain” with producers Adil Sher and Nasir Khan. I’m also developing two feature length screenplays – one a life drama based on living in this bizarre, little city we call Lahore, and the other a larger scale adventure/fantasy film for the international market.
