Hira Mani started her career in showbiz as a host and now she is a well-recognized Pakistani actress. She takes pride in the fact that she is the only married female actress in the Pakistani drama industry who managed to make it this far although she joined the industry when she already had children. She is known for her bold statement just as much as she is for her performances and dramas. Lately, She has worked in some of the biggest dramas. She shares great on-screen chemistry with her co-stars which makes all her performances easier to relate to.
Hira Mani gives credit for her success to her husband who always motivated her and also directed her in the right direction. In an interview, she shared that it was only after she met her husband that she realized what her strong points were. She was always an overconfident woman but most often her confidence was criticized by people around her. Her husband made her realize that this was actually her most strong characteristic.
She always loved being the center of attraction. In her mind, she was always the ‘heroine’, someone who was pampered by her brothers. Her brothers loved taking pictures of her and complimented her all the time. This was the reason why She was always really confident. Hira Mani was a natural performer, she was known for her acting and singing talents in school and college. Even with all this confidence and talent, Hira Mani never really thought about pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. She grew up watching Bollywood movies and she was a big fan of Sri Devi from a young age.
It was only after she got married that she started hosting alongside her celebrity husband. When she started hosting she was criticized a lot for being too blunt at times. A year later she starred in her first acting project with her husband. It was actually her husband’s advice to her that she should leave hosting and start acting. She had never even thought that she would become an actual heroine! Her career in showbiz was like work for her, something she gave her best but she had never envisioned that she would make it this far.
She is also one of those few celebrities who does not let any of the criticism get to her. Although very often she comes under criticism for some reason or the other but rarely ever has she paid heed to it. Surely, the love that she gets from her fans outweighs the criticism she is subjected to. People also love Hira Mani because of her off-screen persona. Unlike many other celebrities, she keeps things real off-screen and has no starry tantrums.

She shared in an interview that it isn’t easy juggling work and family at the same time but it becomes easier for her because she is doing what she loves. Her life revolves around her children and she plans their days around them.
She also shared in an interview that leaving her kids for long hours and sometimes days has never been easy. She always felt that this was a big sacrifice on her part because she misses her children a lot when she is away for work. Hira feels that God rewarded her for this sacrifice with fame and respect. Hira’s husband and children have always supported them. If it wasn’t for her husband, she probably would never have realized that she could make it this big in the industry.
She has 3 brothers, her father worked in the bank and her parents had a love marriage. Growing up, she was always the apple of her brothers’ eyes. Her mother used to love listening to romantic music and her parents were very romantic otherwise too.

When asked in an interview what Hira Mani’s ideal date with her husband will be, she answered that her kids did not give them enough space to go on dates. She loves going swimming with her kids and husband. In her opinion that is the only way of ensuring that they are not busy on their phones and spend quality time with each other.
Hira Mani Husband
Hira Mani’s husband was a celebrity long before Hira joined the industry. In fact, he was the one who encouraged to co-host a show with her. He continued to encourage her throughout, he was the one who advised her to start acting. Hira always praises her husband whenever she gives any interviews. In one such interview, she revealed that her husband loved her so much that he actually stopped sharing his own stance publicly because it was affecting Hira’s career. She revealed that Imran Abbas and Naveen Waqar refused to work with her when they were offered a project alongside Hira because she was Mani’s wife. Mani realized this and he decided to not share his stance as openly as he did before because of this.
Hira shared her love story in interviews not once but twice even though after sharing this story people judged her a lot. Her husband Mani was at that time her friend’s friend, they liked each other and were dating. One night when Hira and her friend were doing a project together, her friend was on the phone all night talking to Mani. Hira was engaged at that time to someone who was a banker and she was due to get married soon. The next day she asked her friend who she was talking to all night to which she replied that she had been talking to Mani. That is when Hira actually got Mani’s number from her friend’s phone, without her knowledge and she started talking to Mani with a fake name.
She was only 17 years old when she got into touch with Mani for the first time not knowing that he will her husband in the future. Hira was always a big fan of Mani because she could always connect to whatever he said on television. She always felt that there was a connection between them even though she had never actually talked to him.
Hira Mani’s two engagements broke before she finally decided that she had found the man of her dreams in her husband Mani.

In one of her interviews, Hira shared that when she joined the industry, she became brand conscious and that made her life hell.
