Her performance in the 2014 social drama Pyarey Afzal earned her critical acclaim and Lux Style Award for Best Television Actress.
Interestingly enough another actress was approached for this role as well. As per our credible sources, actress Sonya Hussain was approached for the role of Mehwish in Meray Pass Tum Ho. The Ishq Zahe Naseeb actress declined the role terming it to be highly negative portrayal of women. It seems that the actress was hesitant to do the role as it would garner a lot of backlash from the audiences, which to some extent did happen.
