The film is in its initial stages and she has just allowed me to say that I am a part of the film, beyond that my lips are sealed," says Soha.
Midnight’s Children will be out next year but before that Soha’s horror film Accident with actor Shiney Ahuja is awaiting release. A Pritish Nandy Communications film, director Abhijit Chaudhary has completed the shooting and is now busy with post production.
