What’s it like seeing yourself on the cover?

Amazing as always!

How did you decide to pursue acting as a career? Did you always want to be an actor?

Becoming a doctor or an architect was something that used to excite me. Theatre production followed by acting legit just happened randomly. A tiny tv appearance and here I am.

Has your perception of acting industry in Pakistan changed over the years?

Not really although there are surprises every now and then.

What are your hobbies outside of acting?

Travelling, reading, watching shows, exploring – I’m into a lot of things.

What is your beauty routine?

Lots of cleansing, moisturizing and hydration. Face masks every now and then. Also, I like to get hydra facials whenever I get the time.

Do you work out?

I try to keep up with my yoga routine.

How do you handle the fame that comes with being an actor? Does the hate or the pressure ever get to you?

Who doesn’t like fame? No complaints in that department Alhamdulilah. As far as the hate is concerned – I’m blessed with thick skin I believe. Trolls can be horrible and I’ve seen people suffer because of them but fortunately I can conveniently skip the hate. Also, who cares about the hate when there’s so much love in your life?

What’s your favourite part about your work?

Acting: I get to play different roles. I love doing character acting.

Production: the creativity and chaos of shoots

Activism: the satisfaction of fighting the good fight.

Who is your favourite designer?

I’m really liking stuff by YSL these days. I’m not the kind of person who likes everything by her favs so hard to name the list.

Name three things on your bucket list.

Blessed to be ticking a few recently. Some more are:

  1. Perform Umrah
  2. Designing and living in the house of my dreams
  3. Go to every Michelin star restaurant

Who is your inspiration?

My Amma

Describe your perfect day off when you’re not working.

Waking up to a lazy coffee hour in bed with my fur baby and the baby I married. Spending the day with my loved ones, maybe squeezing in an hour for yoga or taking a nice walk in the gorgeous Islamabad winter evening, planning for the upcoming vacation, having dinner at my fav Chinese restaurant followed by late night chit chats while munching on fresh peanuts and Kashmiri tea. Last thing would be catching up on an episode of whatever I’m watching or reading a few chapters of the book I’m reading then.

What advice would you give to young aspiring actors?

Don’t do everything that comes your way. Be selective. Choose wisely and most importantly never get disheartened. There’s always a place for talent!

Good Times
