Who is your celebrity crush?
I have had a huge crush on Sajal Aly since forever. The way she talks, her personality, and her commendable acting skills make her a dream girl for anyone.
What is your annoying habit?
I am a very talkative person and always get excited about every little thing.
Who is your inspiration?
Faysal Quraishi and Shehroz Sabzwari are my lifelong inspirations.
If you weren’t a celebrity, what would you be up to right now?
I would have been a motivational speaker and would inspire people to walk on the right paths in life. Our young generation needs to understand the fact that life is all about the struggle, it develops the strength you need for a better tomorrow.
What is your biggest/weirdest fear?
I have Acrophobia, and I intensely fear heights.
What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done?
I've always been the favorite of my professors, but the craziest part was, my teacher, helped me pass my 8th standard exams, she used to give away the questions to me a day before the exams. And hilariously, until today, no one knew about this secret that how I passed the exams without studying.
What sports do you enjoy watching?
I'm not a sporty kid but, I enjoy watching gulf and basketball.
What is your first memory in life?
It was Javaria Saud's daughter first birthday, and I was invited to the party. On the stage there were actors like Faysal Qureshai and aijza aslam dancing to the beat. First I was hesitant not to go up to the stage but when I stepped on to the dancing floor, rest of the actors were following my lead, and that memory will stay with me forever.
What was your favorite movie as a kid?
Finding Nemo is my all-time favorite movie, I used to watch it day and night.
What is the one thing you still have from your childhood?
The one thing that still part of my life is, I'm always dressed up and you'll never see me in Pj's or sweatpants, not even when I'm at home. Dressing up change the way you think or work.
How do you see your journey from a child star to now as an emerging young actor?
When I joined the entertainment industry, actors such as Faysal Quraishi, Wajid Qazi, Badar Khalil, Ahad Raza Mir, Muhammad Qavi Khan and even Moin Akhter, taught me a lesson to always follow and excel the 4 rules to be a hero. Number one is to be punctual, second you have to make your acting the strongest skill, third your facial expressions should be focused and exact while delivering dialogues and forth is an impactful personality. So when I see new emerging actors with nice features but zero acting skills, I consider myself lucky to have all these years of experience and the people that motivated me to be a better actor.
Besides acting, any other thing you are passionate about?
I'm a national debater, and for six years I been constant winner, I've won 31 trophies, only 1st and 2nd positions. I also like to rap and have recorded three songs, and was praised a lot for my rapping skills. I love dancing as well and since I'm good at it, I also taught some people the hit moves,
