1. Tell us something about yourself? where were you educated and what brought you into TV and Modelling?
Ans: I lived in Dubai my whole life, went to school here but did my college from Lahore Kinnaird College. Even in school and college I used to participate in stage plays and debates so the passion for this field was there since childhood. I started modeling for my friends for their brands as a favor and then there was no looking back.
It seems the camera loves me and also the positive feedback put my spirits higher and so I carried on and took it up as a serious profession. They say when the passion is strong and the response is positive and most important with the support of your loved ones, then the pursuit for your goals become easier and natural and Allah has been kind to shower me with right opportunities.

3. How do you juggle between modelling, hosting and being a brand ambassador for sonar?
Ans: Well it’s all about time management and how one gives priority .Anything that one loves doing, one always finds time for it. I give my most time to hosting then as any interesting modeling project comes along, I do make time for it but being the brand ambassador for sonar I equally take it serious as it’s a brand really close to my heart and I even walked the ramp as show stopper for it in Bridal Couture Week for Hum TV. I believe anything done with complete love and sincerity will stand out and be a success and that’s how I take all my projects.
4. What do you like to do in your free time?
