How would you define yourself as a person?

I’m a very helpful person. I would also call myself selfless; I always tend to think of others before thinking of myself. Their happiness is my priority.

What attracted you to a career as an actor?

Starting a career in acting was never planned. Nothing really attracted me to pursue a career in acting. It just happened. One thing led to another and I do not plan to stop!

Acting or modeling?

I like acting more than modeling.

What would you pick as an alternative career for yourself, if given the choice?

Fashion designing.

Three words that best describe you?

Helpful, positive, and honest.

Who is your favourite actor, and why?

It would be Fawad Khan. I have said that a lot of times in all my interviews that he is my favourite actor and I really look up to him.

Where do you see yourself 10 years down the line?

I see myself happy. I just see myself happily continuing with my acting career. That’s what I have planned for myself but let’s hope for the best.
