Faryal Mehmood is a Pakistani model and actress. She has played the role of Mehwish in Geo Entertainment’s Baba Jani. Mehmood has been profiled and featured in Gulf News, The News International, and MangoBaaz. Her mother is Pakistani singer Rohani Bano.
Faryal Mehmood spoke to Express Tribune and talked about her divorce for the first time. She said:
In 2020, Faryal’s made headlines after her split with her husband, Danial Raheel. Initially, she kept silent on the matter however now she said,
“The reason why I didn’t want to talk about it is that it’s not just me who is involved. I don’t want to talk about my ex-husband and his family, who are also prominently involved in the media.”
Furthermore, she revealed that she was excited about the future prospects. Apart from her personal life, Faryal explained that she is truly exhausted from the constant hate surrounding her clothing.
“I think trolls getting personal have a lot to do with the way they’re raised. I don’t understand why they think it’s okay to talk about my parents; about how they [my parents] are okay with the way I dress, how I show my skin. Don’t look at me,” she comments.
Explaining about her experience in Italy, she revealed: “I went to Italy and I was just shocked to see how they thought I was pretty! I thought, ‘Oh my god, these people think I am stunning! They think I have a beautiful complexion and my skin is flawless.”
Dipping her toes in body shaming debate, Faryal shares her brush with fat-shaming she had faced in the industry.
“I was severely body-shamed early on in my career. There were certain directors who shared I wouldn’t get this role because I was too fat for it. I was too fat to play the main lead. Just because you think I am fat, I am not a virgin?’ It baffled me.”
