Having made her big screen debut with a British production called Writhe, Armeena Rana Khan has not looked back. While her debut venture took her to the French Riviera and gave the actress a chance to walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival (2013), it was her appearance in the 2015 film, Bin Roye alongside co-stars Humayun Saeed and Mahira Khan that elevated her stature as an actor. She followed up Bin Roye with a strong role in Azfar Jafri’s Janaan (alongside Bilal Ashraf and Ali Rehman), which picked up decent reviews and collected big bucks at the box office. She is currently playing the protagonist in an ongoing drama serial called Rasm-e-Dunya. As she gears up for the all-star Yalghaar (in which she is cast as Bilal Ashraf’s love interest) Khan talks to Instep about matters close to her heart.
