In Conversation With Anmol Baloch
- Tell us a little bit about yourself; your education, upbringing and where you grew up?
I grew up in a smaller town than Karachi but then moved here with my family. Spent most of my early years in a close knit family environment before the acting bug bit me. I'm actually a B.Sc in Computer Science.
- What made you want to become an actor? How long have you been acting?
I've always wanted to be on the screen and was interested in arts and the creative world since I was a child. I have been acting for four years now.
- If not acting, which other profession would you choose and why?
I think I would have become a doctor because I've always wanted to help people.
- Did you challenge the family dynamic or has everyone been supportive?
In order for me to come into this field, I had to obviously break the conservative mold my family has, but I still observe some rules and stay within them. Thus so far they have been very supportive.
- Three new things you learnt while in quarantine?
Cooking, the value of time spent with your loved ones and I've also picked up the habit of reading.
- What advice would you give your younger self?
Trust no one and try to judge the mettle of your roles before you take them on.
- Which of your roles was the most challenging for you?
Rabia in Deewar-e-Shabwas interesting for me and challenging as she had many layers to her.
- What kind of character would you want to play next and which character would you reject?
I don't think I have a limitation as far as characters to play but I would definitely prefer stronger roles as a woman.
- Anmol Baloch in three words?
Sophisticated, actor, extraordinaire.
- What have you learned about yourself since you became a celebrity?
That I don't like the limelight as much as I thought I did.
