Actress Ayesha Omar, of Bulbulay sitcom fame, will be playing the role of a police officer in an upcoming film based on the Pakistani serial killer Javed Iqbal.

Talking to Dawn Images, Omar said, “I am playing the female police officer who leads the interrogation.”

Omar took to social media to reveal her look for the movie. “The Untold Story of a Serial Killer, coming soon. InshAllah,” she wrote on Instagram. “And with my first look for this shattering story, a salute to our armed forces for protecting and serving us, consistently, against all odds, day in and day out. I’m full of gratitude, today and every day.”

The infamous killer will be portrayed by actor Yasir Hussain who also posted his look on social media earlier. Both Omar and Hussain have previously worked together in the movie Karachi Se Lahore.

One of the most notorious serial killers in Pakistan during the late 90’s, Javed Iqbal confessed to killing and raping over a 100 young boys in a letter addressed to the chief editor of a Lahore newspaper. After a month-long manhunt Iqbal turned himself in at the office of an Urdu daily and later committed suicide in prison before any punishment could be meted out.
