Innocence on face and talent dripping out of each character, we had a mini conversation with the real star of “Inkar” – Yumna Zaidi and this is what we talked about.
1) We always see Yumna playing innocent characters, Is it because you always choose such roles?
I think my innocent characters have been registered more than the other characters I have played. Out of 12-14 shows, I have done two negative roles and two light comedy
2) Are you willing to opt for the role of an antagonist in future?
Yes, waiting for that.
3) Which drama and character from the past you would love to do?
4) Which one has been your favorite out of all your dramas up till now?
Yeh Raha Dil and Inkaar
5)Your weirdest fan moment?
A guy at the airport on counter, out of excitement, gave me the wrong flight boarding card.
6) What’s the best and worst thing about living a star life?
Best. Everything is best about this life. I cant thank enough.
7) People have loved your character in “Inkar”. What do you love about this character?
Her strength and truthfulness
8) We have heard that the drama is based on a real life incident, how true is that?
Inspiration from Khadija’s stabbing case but it was just an inspiration.
9) In the time when there is “me too” and “importance of consent” movement going on along with a deep rooted misogyny embedded in the society, how do you think Dramas like “inkaar” can impact a society?
I feel that women in Entertainment industry are very strong. I think they can take a stand for themselves. But a common woman\girl can relate to this drama very well and can also learn from it. Always remember that If something bad has happened, do take a stand for it.
10) Which role was the biggest challenge for you to perform out of all your characters?
Samera\Shakra in Ishq Zahe Naseeb
11) You picked up the real game from the drama “Zara Yaad Kar”. You had a very strong character, how did it impact you and how much can you relate to that character?
That was the only script which I didn’t read and asked my mom to do it. I was so confused that whether I should do it or not. Khalil Sahab’s script is always beautiful but the dialogue delivery is always difficult and is expected to be excellent . Initially, I gave up because i thought I wasn’t doing it well. But, i was so conscious while working that I tried to give my best shot and this way I learnt a lot. I enjoyed that character and i still remember that drama.
12) What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I don’t want to answer that. There are many actually.
13) What is one piece of advice that you always keep in your mind?
Stay strong and always keep a firm belief in yourself.
15) Out of all your dramas, Which role can you relate to the most?
I think I can’t relate because we all are different in real life. I just want to mention one thing here. Every character that I have played up till now, I have tried to pick up good things that eventually became a part of my personality.
16) Tell us about your future projects?
My future projects are very interesting. One is for Hum TV and the other is for Geo. I am sure people would love it because one is a bubbly character and the other is very simple and of kind nature.

A Model-Turned-Actress Still at the Peak of her Performance; Sadia Khan!
Sadia Khan is a name that needs no introduction. The star has made sure she leaves an impression on the audiences with her charming on-screen persona and acting mettle both in the world of modeling and acting. Famed for one of the top performances of her career in Khuda Aur Mohabbat, this starlet has a lot of achievements under her name, and that isn’t all that makes her special.
Starting her career with modeling, this actor-turned-model was destined to be more than just a model. Launched in 2011 in various dramas and ramps, Sadia Khan’s personality and talent have been rather irrepressible. She’s covered countless magazines, starred in numerous dramas, modeled for Pakistan’s biggest brands; in short, there isn’t any territory the actress hasn’t explored. Not to mention, she has made one of the more successful model-to-television and movie star transitions in the Pakistani entertainment industry, like her magnetic performance in Khuda Aur Muhabbat (2011), Naina Syed in Laa (2014), Umm-e-Hani in Shayad, (2017) and Maryam in Maryam Periera (2018). Khan also appeared in a film which is Abdullah: The Final Witness (2016).
But let’s not forget that she was—still is—a unique and remarkable model, as we were all reminded by her triumphant shoots for brands including Khaadi, Sapphire, Gul Ahmed, Sana Safinaz to posing for various other brands. She was the brand ambassador of Khaadi for 3 years, and the brand ambassador for Ufone for more than 2 years. Sadia Khan was modeling from an early age, spending her teens posing for photographs. She then made it as an actress, filling her resume with unconventional and unique roles. The triple threat performer is not only an actress and a model, but also a singer and songwriter. Is there anything that this star can’t do? We don’t think so.
