Salma Hasan, a talented and graceful Pakistani television actor, made her acting debut with the sitcom “Sab Set Hai,” where her pairing with Azfar Ali garnered popularity.
Despite her success, Salma Hasan is also known as a single mother, raising her adorable and talented daughter, Fatima. She was previously married to Azfar Ali, but their relationship ended in divorce after Azfar married actor Navin Waqar, who they, too, eventually parted ways with.
In recent years, Salma Hasan made a comeback to acting and gained acclaim for her roles in various dramas, including the highly successful “Khaani,” “Baddua,” “Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha,” and “Fairly Tale.”
During a recent interview with Buraq Shabir on BBC Urdu, Salma Hasan discussed her latest dramas and shared stories about her co-actors. She also recounted a heartfelt encounter with a random fan.
Reflecting on the experience, she recalled, “After my divorce, when my daughter Fatima was still young, I met a lady at Dolmen Mall. This tall lady wearing a white Abaya approached me and embraced me tightly. It was a precious hug as if she knew me and needed that connection.
She continued to hug me while shedding tears. She said, ‘I pray for your happiness and wish you a lifetime of joy.’ Her tears were so sincere that I had to comfort her. I felt overwhelmed because sometimes in life, you long for a hug and someone to take care of you.”
