Lahore, June 14 (ANI): Pakistani actress Yamina Peerzada is gearing up to host the Edinburgh Fringe Festivals first-ever one-woman show in August.

Yamina has also studied at The Dramatic Art and Design Academy in New Delhi.
The artist, who is currently doing her Masters degree at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, started acting in productions at the age of seven.
Ever since she debuted as an actress in an Australian-Pakistani production, she has worked in over 20 productions both at home and abroad.
