Fatima and Shirley


We wanted to tell a story about tolerance and empathy, and see the world from the point of view of these two best friends, who are close regardless of their different backgrounds. On a personal note, I enjoyed learning more about Ramadan and my Muslim heritage. I was blessed to work with two wonderful lead actors, who bring each moment to life.
Shout out to Hijaz Moosa & Danny Sawaf for giving me the opportunity and Ali Shabaz from RAPP for writing such a lovely script. I really enjoyed our collaboration.
