However, they would have preferred a career in the civil service. I remember my father encouraging me to read newspapers diligently to prepare for the civil service exams, but I could never visualise myself in a government office. I wanted respect because of my achievements and not because of my post in a government job.
I was a dreamer, an optimist and a romantic. I did not have a detailed plan for realising my dreams, just a lot of passion. Scene from the movie Tere Bin Laden Once you became a part of the entertainment world, did you find the stigma associated with the industry to be justified?
On the contrary, I received a lot of love, adulation and respect. No one ever looked down on me because I was a musician or a model or an actor. I think women have to deal with far greater problems than men in show business.
In our society, people assume that a woman in the performing arts is likely to have a dubious family background, which is why parents are almost always hesitant to let their daughters venture into the field. Times, however, are changing and parents need to understand that the industry is no longer the shady place they believed it to be. We have a lot of women in the field today. They make a good living and get a lot of adoration and respect.
This is true not just for show business but for all fields. Our society certainly needs female icons to inspire the future generations. Moreover, it is necessary to give women due respect, proper recognition and sufficient space to grow. We need to develop a better appreciation and understanding of women.

So to answer your question, there is certainly a stigma attached to the industry — but primarily for women, which is not justified. When you were young and new to the industry, you were linked to a male stylist and a music patron. Yes, I was, and it hurt me terribly.
It was untrue, it was malicious and there was the implication that I may have used sex to get ahead. I was not mature enough at the time to understand that the rumours were being spread because of jealousy and took them to heart. Actually, I became homophobic for a very long time and, it was only several years later, after I had educated myself and thought about the rumours, that I came to see that piece of gossip for what it truly was — trash.
Bollywood is one of the largest film industries in the world. Do you believe that exhibiting Indian films in Pakistan or, for that matter acting in Bollywood films, is indicative of lack of patriotism? Our understanding of patriotism is not very evolved and mature.
Patriotism is certainly not xenophobia. Spewing hateful comments about other nations is not a good way of showing patriotism.
The decision to allow the exhibition of Indian films in Pakistan generated a lot of controversy. People were concerned that the action would affect our culture and values.
People were also afraid that it would mark the end of Pakistani cinema. Everyone seemed to forget the fact that Indian films were being watched regularly in most Pakistani homes on video cassettes. Very few films were being made in Pakistan at the time. The number of cinemas had dwindled to around When Indian films started being screened in Pakistan, the number of cinemas increased. Pakistani films consequently had more avenues for exhibiting and made more money.
Competition helped improve the quality of our films and the whole industry went through a revival. I do not think anyone could say that allowing the exhibition of Indian films was a bad decision. Pakistani actors working in India, and vice versa, only helps to promote peace and cultural understanding. Whenever I have worked in India, I have viewed myself as an ambassador of Pakistan and taken great care to make sure that any and every thing I do reflects well on Pakistan.
Why did you turn down that role?
The role had become very controversial at the time. Junaid Jamshed had accepted it but subsequently dropped out of the film. Certain credible threats had been issued against the making of the film. My parents were concerned for my safety and encouraged me to turn down the role. What did you do you right that other Pakistani actors failed to do?
I have tremendous respect for the actors who worked in Indian films before me. They were the trailblazers. I cannot say exactly what I did differently but, whatever it was, it seems to have worked well. However, I will say that I have always been a great believer in the power of positivity and the fact that respect begets respect. I was very selective about the films I did in India.
I turned down two films before I signed on to do Tere Bin Laden because they were formula films with nothing new and fresh about them. Moreover, I decided to do only one film a year and never got into the race of signing the most films in the shortest period of time.
I think being selective was helpful to my career. Also, I conducted myself very professionally when in India — one, because I was representing Pakistan and, two, because I believe in professionalism. Punctuality, discipline and preparation are important to me. I think filmmakers in India liked my style of working and the fact that they could always count on me to show up on time, and fully prepared.
