How did you become a model?
Well it’s all fate. I’ve always wanted to become a model, and I was very sure that I’ll make it one day so here I am, Alhamdulillah doing so well.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be?
I don’t see myself doing anything else. Modelling is something I wanted to do ever since I was young and I honestly love my job.
If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive who would it be?
Marilyn Monroe! I’ve always been a fan, she was the diva of her time. I’m really keen to know the stories of that era where everything was not that easy as it is now.
Describe yourself in three words?
Minimalist, passionate and confident.
Any hidden talent/talents?
I’m a great cook, although I don’t get time to cook that frequently but I think I get this from my mother; since she’s a great cook herself.
Biggest pet peeve?
There are two actually, overuse of the word ‘like’ and when people around me chew gum loudly.
What would be your trademark accessory?
It would be my sunglasses; I don’t step out without them.
What are the three fashion trends you love at the moment?
1. Short hair, it’s easy to tame, you can get ready within five minutes and look effortlessly chic.
2. T-shirt, you can wear it at any event and feel comfortable.
3. Pant suit, this is something that portrays power along with style.
Top three favourite models?
Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid and Mehreen Syed.
Three things you can never leave your house without?
My phone, I’m a phone addict; I need my phone all the time. Wallet of course and my sunglasses, I can’t leave my home without glasses – it’s something I always carry even when I’m in a rush.
If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which one would it be?
FRIENDS! I’m someone who likes to be surrounded by my friends, and I can totally relate to Monica’s character. The way she wants to be in control of everything, how she needs things to be in proper order, that’s me!
First celebrity crush?
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Biryani! Biryani over anything. I really don’t mind having it every day.
Would you rather be able to see 10 minutes into your own future or 10 minutes into the future of anyone but yourself?
I think I’d rather have my future be unknown. I mean if I know everything about what’s going to happen then there will be nothing to be excited or anxious about. Life will become dull and in my opinion these are the feelings that actually make you feel alive so I’d rather look into someone else’s future.
One super power you wish to possess?
Immortality! So I could live forever and be the oldest person on earth. Just imagine people would come to me for guidance and wisdom and since I love helping people with whatever knowledge I have I would happily do it.
Would you rather find your true love or a suitcase with five million dollars inside?
Love is a beautiful feeling that money cannot compensate for, so yeah true love!
What was the last lie you told?
‘I’m on my way’ haha, when in reality I hadn’t even started getting ready.
When was the last time you were really scared and why?
I am someone who gets scared of any and every sound, so the last time I was scared was probably 5-10 minutes ago.
One bad habit you want to quit but are unable to?
Nail biting! Whenever I’m stressed I start to bite my nails unconsciously and I really want to break this habit.
What’s the best and worst thing about your job?
I’m totally aware of my work since the very first day and I love my job. There’s nothing to hate about my job, it’s my passion and I really enjoy doing it.
