Describe yourself in three words.
Actor, producer and optimist.
When did you start acting?
I started roughly ten years ago while I was in college. I fell in love with the craft and knew this was what I wanted to pursue.
How was your experience with your first film?
Absolutely amazing. I loved every moment of it.
You have a background in theatre, but now that youâ€™ve moved onto films and television, has the transition been difficult?
Itâ€™s different, canâ€™t say harder or easier, just different.
Do you intend to make time for theatre alongside films and television?
Yes, I do intend to. Theatre was my first love and my introduction to acting, so I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll ever leave it entirely.
How do you spend your spare time?
I try to spend it with friends and family, as I really am a peopleâ€™s person.
You were recently nominated at the Lux Style Awards for Dar si Jati hai Sila. How do you feel about that?
Surprised and humbled.
Who is your favourite co-star?
Ali Junejo, Nazar ul-Hasan, Mohammad Ahmed, Nauman Ejaz … the list will go on. I respect all my peers and continue to learn immensely from all of them.
Where do you see yourself in the next ten years?
Hopefully, as someone who plays an important part in the growth of the entertainment industry.
What one piece of advice would you give aspiring actors?
Work hard. If no one takes you seriously, prove to them that theyâ€™re making a huge mistake.
