Meera enliven the movie "Baaji" even with a weak story.
Meera Khan is a Pakistani film actress, television presenter, model and philanthropist. She has also known as Irtiza Rubab. But she famous with the name Meera. She was born on 12th May 1977. She is daughter of Manzoor Hussain Shah (Goldsmith). Her mother’s name is Syeda Shafqat Zahra. She has four siblings – two brother and two sisters. Her mother was a teacher and an educationalist. She started acting in school plays in high school and went on to model for various commercial products while still in high school.
Baaji does start on the note we expect. A senior former Lollywood actor, Shameera, is being cut from movies due to her age but she refuses to give up her career as a film star only be reduced to stage mujras. She finds a companion in Neha (Amna Ilyas), a simple beautician who becomes her manager, excelling at her job to such an extent that Shameera is seen returning to the spotlight.
If you've ever read a story about Meera, you'll be able to see the similarities between her and Shameera. Maybe that's why the writers went with the name. From getting harassed by an ex via a fake nikahnama to suffering revenge porn, Shameera goes through all the tribulations we have read about our own icon. That just might be why Meera did exceptionally well in her role, it was tailor-made for her.
Baaji is a thrilling and a dramatic tale set against the background of a fading Lollywood and the emergence of a new order in Pakistani cinema. The story focuses on a fading star, Shameera, who yearns to make a comeback and her relationship with a young girl, Neha, from inner city Lahore, who has big dreams of her own. The story takes a turn when a Pakistani American director who has just completed his maiden venture in Hollywood comes to Lahore to be a part of the revival of the local film industry. Searching for a classic face, he chooses Shameera for the film. And so begins the a high voltage story of desire, ambition and betrayal. Baaji takes the audiences on a journey filled with glamour, romance, scandal and intrigue. The film also pays a tribute to the classic social dramas of Pakistani cinema of the 1960s and the 1970s, while also finding inspiration from the golden era of Hollywood of the 1940s and 1950s.
