Here are 60 seconds from her life. Excerpts:

How would you describe yourself?

An extrovert and an open person who doesn’t keep secrets.

How did modelling come about?

I was visiting Khawar Riaz with a friend of mine when he asked me to consider modelling as a career. I thought he was joking then, but here I am today.

How has been your experience with the entertainment fraternity so far?

People are very supportive and helpful here and that is what I try to do for others, as well.

Karachi or Lahore?

I love both the cities and its people.

Your formula to success?

When a script is offered to me, I do a background search before signing it. I look at the script, co-stars, directors – everything. It is all important for me. I am very choosy when it comes to work. I don’t want to associate myself with bad projects – that is the reason why I work with limited people. I won’t go on and work with just anyone.

What does your workout regimen look like?

I love going to the gym and doing yoga. I try to work out every day.

Things you love to do, your hobbies?

Travelling and shopping.

Your goal in life?

I don’t ever wish to stop working and learning, simultaneously. I think this is what keeps an artiste going.
