‘Umrao Jaan’ director Muzaffar Ali, who returns to make a film after a while with ‘Jaanisaar’, is extremely fascinated with his heroine, debutante Pernia Qureshi, terming her a ‘miracle woman’.

‘When you see some women, you get a feeling that they they’ll give up in moments of hardships. But with Pernia, this is definitely not the case as she can do wonders. She is a miracle woman. She has performed these miracles without a hint of difference to her beauty and grace,’ Ali said at the trailer launch here.

‘She is a genius and nothing short of that and I think she’ll go very very far. And I think it is the best choice that I’ve made,’ he said.

About the thought of casting the renowned fashion entrepreneur, Ali said: ‘When I saw Pernia, I got a feeling that she was Noor (her character in film). And Noor had a certain attitude and style about her. She combined a certain style of determination to do activities and a peculiar style of dancing and expression.’

Pernia has also beautifully enacted a special fight form which was a concoction of karate and other martial arts.

A period love drama set in the late 19th century, ‘Jaanisaar’ also stars Pakistani actor Imran Abbas of ‘Creature’ fame.
