“I don’t have a problem with no make-up appearances” – Yasra Rizvi

Yasra Rizvi is well known for her powerful performances in many drama serials. What most people don’t know is that Yasra Rizvi is not just an actor but she has written scripts woo. In fact while talking to MAG Yasra revealed that she was more passionate about writing than acting. She said,

“I only write when I’m touched by an issue or a story. My first play was inspired by my younger brother who passed away two years ago. He was a troubled teenager and I was his mentor. I realised that there was a huge generation gap between his age of information and the older generation. Thus, the younger lot is unable to put their point across.”


Yasra Rizvi is also planning to step in to film making and she is not afraid to fail. She said,

“What do you do if you don’t take a leap of faith in life? I don’t think little hippity-hop jumps do it for me. I’m familiar with all these disciplines and I’ve basically clubbed everything together. What’s the worst that will happen? I will fail. Well that’s life!”


Yasra Rizvi is one of those very few actresses who are not in this profession for glamour. She has no problem playing roles which are not glamorous and she does not mind coming on screen without make. Talking about that she shared,

“I played a moun dhula hua, intense role only after six-months of my entry into TV and the audience and producers ended up liking it. I don’t have a problem with no make-up appearances – a reason why directors prefer me for such roles.”


Yasra Rizvi believes that every woman is full of potential and she is very thankful to all those people who made her realize her potential. Yasri Rizvi’s first film as a director is going to be a romantic comedy, it is titled “Senti Aur Mental.”
