- Mohammad Chafi Sahel as Baba
- Leena Alam as Khaled's wife
- Messi Gul as the abandoned infant

The film was critically acclaimed. Variety wrote: "Observation and narrative are so skillfully intertwined that every detail gestates a potential full-blown story and every story point teems with cultural contradictions. Thus, when Khaled’s wife slips among the veiled women waiting to claim the infant, she silently unleashes a subversively alternate point of view. Highly accomplished tech credits reinforce pic’s authenticity."
