Favourite on screen moments so far?

I did a serial with Ahsan Khan and Sami Khan that I really enjoyed. Both were great to work with. There are also some fun moments in the movie Chalay Thay Saath that I had fun working on

Who do you think will love Chalay thay Saath?

My mother who is extremely critical loved it. I think everyone who will watch the movie will love it also

Chalay Thay Saath is your debut movie. What do you think was most difficult to bring this character to life?

My character is not a candy floss, glammed up character. People will either love it or hate it. It’s abit dark and not always palatable

Do you think you have a mysterious personality?

Yes, I do!

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

That I’m a hugger! When I’m really close to someone I’m like a clingy dog but I when I don’t know someone I have my fangs out and am extremely guarded—these are the two extremes of my personality.

Many times

Ever been in love?

Many times, but not like in love-love but l have had crushes when I was a child and sort of grew out of them, many times!

Were you nervous about your debut?

Very nervous, definitely more than little bit

Why did you want to be involved in this production?

Well when they told me Faris is in it, I had my hesitation (laughs out loud). Of course when I read the script and learned Beenish and Umer Adil are a part of this then I knew this would be a good production. It is extremely important for me to work with people who I’m comfortable with and the team is great! I made sure I pick my debut movie wisely and make it a memorable one for myself.

When my film was releasing on February 4th was the most nerve wrecking day of my life!

Change you’d like to see in our film industry?

People are never happy. If they could find just one tiny thing wrong they would pick that and would not look at the bigger picture no matter how great that might be. It’s quite discouraging and disheartening. I want everyone to be encouraging with each other and support each other.
