A cup of Frothy Cappuccino, Nutella crepe’s and Waffles on a fine Saturday afternoon sounds good right? You know what’s even better? Having to enjoy ALL that with your Favorite Celebrities, while you talk about Life, laughter and get some insight about their upcoming Movie – CAKE; like friends, who are catching up on life!
YES, that was me – Having a Jolly good time with the super Talented and Gorgeous Aamina Sheikh and Sanam Saeed! It was a few days back when I was called in by the PR team of their upcoming Movie and was asked ‘Hey Abeer, are you free this Saturday (7th Oct) ? You’ve been selected as the winner to meet and have an afternoon with Aamina and Sanam for their new movie CAKE’. I couldn’t hold my excitement! Cleared my calendar for Saturday, kept everything on hold Because HELLO!!- COFFEE AND CAKES WITH THESE TWO! WHY NOT?
Sanam and Aamina once posted about a competition on their Social Media, to share your Favorite Dessert at your favorite Dessert eatery in town and One Lucky Winner shall get to meet them– AND NOT JUST MEET- Eat, Chit chat and have a great time. So Team Cake invited me over at LALS.
It’s a different thing bumping into your favorite celebrities or working with them and a completely different one to sit with them one on one, giggling, laughing and listening to each other while soft vintage music is being played in the background.
I got to know so much about their upcoming Movie CAKE. It has been shot in three different locations including London, UK. When I told Aamina I’m getting married in a few months and shall move to Edinburgh and can’t wait to reminisce my childhood (As I’ve lived there when i was a kid), Sanam shared how she remembers wearing those thick Jumpers and Cardigans when she lived in London during her childhood. While discussing about Edinburgh, Sanam told she loves Game Of thrones (Which has been shot in parts of Northern Scotland) and Aamina loves Edinburgh and has been catching up on the series GOT.
These two women have been my complete inspiration for their promising projects, great acting and above all such graceful personalities. It was heart melting to see these two as such sweet individuals and so down to earth.Loved how we shared our insights about different topics, life, my perspective as an audience and so much more.
Now let’s come to the BEST PART, shall we? The time when we had to order Desserts! That too as many and as much as we wanted! Courtesy- LALS. YES! ( Just like a kid in a candy store- that was ME!)
Since it was all about getting your-Sweet Tooth- Cravings- satisfied, we ordered Nutella Crepe’s, Strawberry & Gelato Waffles, Chocolates Éclairs, Scones and of course, Coffee. I told them either my Birthday Present came late this year or the Christmas came too early to which we shared a good laugh and gobbled up our desserts!
I’m a huge supporter of Pakistani Cinema and i believe it’s really important to appreciate good Art and talent. Thank you for having me over, Team CAKE– THE FILM. Wishing you lots of Luck and success! Can’t wait to watch this movie in the theaters!
