What acting style would explain you the best? Is it just one? Or you are open to negative roles as well in future? 

I really don’t know which style would suit me the best because I have only done two characters so far. I am still exploring myself. But, as an actor, I will be open to all kind of roles which have substance in them.  

What would you like to be known for; being a painter or an actor? 

Painting is something that I worked hard on all my life. I have strived for it. Acting is something that just came my way. It was very unexpected. So, hands down, it’s painting. 

What drama (especially) from the past you would have loved doing?

One drama that I would really like to be in is Sheher-e-Zaat. I would love to play Mahira’s character there. I think it was a beautiful script and I loved it. 

We have seen Izza in Anna (a sensitive girl who loves her family who likes to keep things simple and who thinks money can make a person rude and proud) so, what Naimal is like in real life? 

Naimal is pretty much like Izza because we share same morals and values in life. Dignity and respect is very important for me. That’s how I have been brought up in my family as well. So, yes I am a very simple girl. I like my life not so complicated and I also feel money cant buy happiness. 

Your weirdest fan moment?

I don’t think I have a lot of fans but let me think… Yes, one time, I received this box and it had 10 sketches of me. I thought it would be random but they kept coming in every week. So, that was pretty creepy. 

What do you do when you are not working?  (other than painting) 

So, when i am not working, i love spending time with my family and nature. Most of my time is with my horses at the stable and you will see me there. 

What have you learned about yourself since you became a celebrity?

I really don’t think I can answer this question because I still feel I am not a celebrity as yet. 

What advice would you give to your younger self?

One advice that I would like to give to my younger self is “ Don’t worry too much about things in life. Just be patient and hang in there.” 

What’s your take on feminism? 

To me, feminism is equality. 

Has your life changed after being an actor? 

Honestly, my life hasn’t really changed after being an actor. 

What do you enjoy the most? The limelight or the ordinary life you had before getting into this career? 

If I had to choose, I would definitely take the ordinary life. 

Would you like to comment on “Harassment at Workplace”? Have you ever encountered such a thing or has it made you uncomfortable at any point since you have started your career? 

So far, in the acting business, I have not experienced any case of harassment. It has been very professional and to the point. 

 In the season FRIENDS, who can you relate to the most?

A lot of people are going to hate me for this but I am one of those who have actually not seen FRIENDS. But my family and friends tell me that I remind them of Rachel and I am pretty much like her. So, it would be Rachel then.

Summer 2019 is in full gear and if their is one thing all girls need – it’s to detox their skin in this sticky humid weather. Self care is essential to maintain glowing, acne-free skin. We’ve rounded up 5 Do-It-Yourself Face masks for you to try with your girlfriends this summer. Bask in the rich goodness of nutritious products working their magic, put on some music and RELAX!

  1. The Disprin Face Mask (YES, you read that right!)

Recommended to us by a friend, we were shocked at the results. If you want to achieve tighter skin and close down those pores, then apply this twice a week.

How to make it:

  • 2 tbsp Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Disprin crushed
  • 1 tbsp Besan
  • 1 tbsp Yoghurt
  • Dash of Rose Water

Mix all ingredients in a bowl till it forms a paste. Apply to clean face, wait ten minutes and re-apply another layer. Let it stay another ten minutes and then gently scrub it off with water.

2. Oatmeal and vinegar mask

This mask will do wonders for you if you have oily skin. Apply once a week.

How to make it:

  • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal
  • ¼ cup of hot water
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

Wash your face with warm water to allow the pores to open up and remove and makeup. Pour the hot water onto your oatmeal and then combine it with honey. At the end, mix the vinegar and apply the mask while it is still warm. Rinse off after 15 minutes and then wash your face with cold water.

3. Citrus avocado mask

Avocados are somewhat an underdog of the fruit family with so many benefits. This mask is great for evening out pigmentation and adding a glow to your face. Apply twice a week


How to make it:

  • ½ of an avocado, mashed
  • ½ of a lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

This mask is super refreshing and will leave your face feeling smooth and skin tones evened out. Mix all the ingredients together and apply evenly to your face and neck. Rinse after 15 minutes and moisturize with your daily face cream (preferably NIVEA)

4. Chocolate Coffee Mask

Made from antioxidant-rich cocoa, chocolate has become known for its heart-healthy benefits. These beans are loaded with polyphenols, catechins, and flavonols, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin, increases blood flow to the skin, keeps the skin hydrated and maintains the skin’s elasticity.

How to make it:

  • 1 tsp of instant coffee
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • Plain yogurt (enough to make a smooth paste)

Sounds appetizing right? But don’t stuff your face just yet! Combine all ingredients and spread your mixture evenly on your clean, dry face. Avoid your eyes, eyebrows, hairline and lips when you apply your mask and keep it on for 15 minutes before washing it off to reveal more beautiful skin.
