Pakistan’s first female fighter pilot, the late Marium Mukhtar will be a forever hero in the history of nation’s air force. To honor her memory, Urdu 1 has taken the much-needed initiative of sharing her story in a telefilm “Ek Thi Marium” featuring Sanam Baloch. The telefilm will be launched on Defence Day, September 6th.

The trailer of the telefilm is now out and bound to give you goosebumps. Sanam looks uncannily similar to the late pilot and has really done justice to the character.

It has been three years since Sanam Baloch is hosting morning show transmissions. She is now all set for a smashing return in dramas with this special telefilm.

The drama’s directorial rein is in the hands of the Manto mastermind, Sarmad Khoosat. It has been penned by the popular writer, Umera Ahmed.

The promo gives a sneak peek into Marium Mukhtar’s life; her desire to fly since she was a little girl, which later transformed into a passion for serving her beloved homeland.

The rough life and tough training of being an air force fighter pilot didn’t bring Marium Mukhtar down. She rose to be the ultimate role model for Pakistani women by being nation’s first ever female fighter pilot.

The female soldier lost her life in the line of duty when her PAF jet crashed in Mianwali.

Sanam has undergone extensive training to pursue this role. Check out the actress in a completely new avatar below.

“Before the shoot, I had spent first two days with the cadets so I can adapt to their environment and body language at the Air Force Academy. I have a couple of Air force people and trainers at the shoot (set), who are helping me out with it. I am trying my best to replicate the way they move about,” Sanam shared in an interview to Express Tribune.

The starlet is very excited to be a part of the mega venture and is certain that Sarmad Khoosat’s magic will make the telefilm worth a watch!
