The extremely talented actress Hareem Farooq made her screen debut with a leading role in the 2013 horror thriller Siyaah, which earned her a nomination at The Lux Style Awards for Best Actress. In addition to films, she has also featured in several hit television serials too.

Right now, Dobara Phir Se.

Good energy, good energy and good energy.

Who is your favourite designer?
I don’t have a preference; if I see something I like at itwar bazaar I’ll buy it. I am a thrift shopper.

She zones out. Anything over 30 seconds, don’t even bother!

Definitely my friends, Ali Rehman and Gohar Rasheed —they are both very entertaining.

I have never really been punished, but when I was eight years old I ran away from home and so my dada slapped me.

Audrey Hepburn, I love her style.
