Shahroz Sabzwari may be the son of veteran actor Behroz Sabzwari, but he has made his own place in the field of acting and modeling, making his mark with his impeccable performance in the drama serial Tanhaiyan Naye Silsilay and Nanhi. Though his debut movie Chain Aye Na flopped at the box office, his recent hit serial Zard Zamano Ka Sawera made that look like a little bump in his very shiny ride.

Growing  up in London, her Urdu is not fluent so she’s working extra hard on her dialogue delivery as  all eyes are currently on this beauty. Sana Zehra sits down with the ingenue for a fun rapid fire session

Well, if something makes them happy then why not? If it gives them a sense of achievement then why not celebrate it and share it with the rest of the world and give inspiration to young girls as well? No harm in that!

What about people who cannot afford these brands?

It’s a sad reality that so many people are in want and are suffering. We should all help them but if someone wants to enjoy life then I say let it be. God has everything. He can provide anything to anyone. We are divided into social strata for a reason. Everything should be taken positively.
