During a captivating photoshoot at the LA Times Studio at TIFF, Bucha, Mirza, Hamza Haq, and Amrit Kaur came together to create an image that highlighted their camaraderie. The LA Times shared this image with the caption, “Director Fawzia Mirza and actors Amrit Kaur, Nimra Bucha, and Hamza Haq discuss their new film, ‘The Queen of My Dreams,’ at the Los Angeles Times Studio at the RBC House during the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival.”
Speaking about her character with the LA Times, Bucha mentioned that the themes of the film were personal to the director, Fawz Mirza. She said, “That was the most important thing, where it was so personal for her and relatable in a way. In some ways, it was relatable. I think I grew to love Sharmila because I’m not a Sharmila Tagore fan.” She continued, “Because I grew up in the 70s and 80s in Pakistan. That is, I think, one of the big surprises to me, that I grew to love Sharmila Tagore.”
Bucha also shared her enthusiasm for a particular scene in the film, the Tupperware scene, which drew her to the project. She said, “If this film is going to have a Tupperware scene, then nobody else is going to do this, I want to do this.” She expressed her delight in working on that scene and how it resonated with her as an actor.
A review by Film Companion described “The Queen of My Dreams” as “a treat of a film, a real heartfelt pleasure,” solidifying its position as a must-watch cinematic masterpiece. Bucha herself posted about the film on Instagram, emphasizing its significance.
