LEADING Asian film producer and actress Shamim Aara was in Huddersfield and is seen presenting Nisar Smiler, of Springwood, with his latest gold medal for karate.

The karate black belt and coach won the medal for the kata section of karate at a competition in Birmingham.

Mrs Aara, a well-known director at Lollywood in Lahore, Pakistan, is filming in London, where she is on the lookout for new faces to appear in the film Buddah Bigra Jai.

But she took a break from her hectic schedule to renew her friendship with Mr Smiler and his family, with whom she has been staying.
