Pakistani Celebrities Who Slept on The Sets

All those people out there who work can relate to those days when you are so tired that you just want to doze off at the workplace. While most people have calculated working hours and don’t have the option to do so, Pakistani celebrities have such hectic routine and odd working hours that very often they do not even get the time to get proper sleep when they are busy shooting for a project. Most of the shootings are done at night time and the working hours can sometimes be longer than anticipated. Pakistani celebrities like other celebrities in the world work hard to get their projects wrapped up on time which is why there are a lot of celebrities who end up taking a nap on the sets of their shoots. Another reason for this is that they have to wait for long hours for their turn, so it gives them enough free time to take a power nap. Many celebrities have often talked about how important these naps are for them and they have also shared how this sleep deprivation can sometimes lead to sleeping in the most odd of moments and places.

Mahira Khan on the sets of Sadqay Tumhare and during promotions

Mahira Khan posted her picture on social media few years back in which she took a power nap while getting her make-up done. She was so tired that when she closed her eyes to get her make-up done, she actually dozed off for a while. Even such moments of dozing off for a few minutes sometimes give her the energy she needs in order to revitalize herself.

Mahira Khan’s make-up artist Babar Zaheer, who is also her good friend, made this video of her while she took a power nap during the promotions of Superstar. Making a film and then promoting it on different forums can be exhausting which is why even though Mahira Khan was in the middle of these promotions, she slept on the couch. Mahira Khan’s co-workers also call her Mazdoor Khan because once she starts working on a project, she works really hard and would do anything at all that needs to be done in order to assist her team.

Sajal Ali’s cutest picture

Whoever took this picture certainly gave Sajal Ali’s fans a really cute picture of hers to fall in love with. Sajal Ali posted this picture of her sleeping on the sets with the caption “mission accomplished. Now my sleep will be revived.” This has to be the cutest picture of any celebrity sleeping during a shoot. Even though Sajal is wearing a heavily embroidered dress but that did not stop her from catching up on her sleep by taking a much-needed power nap.

Mehwish Hayat and director Nadeem Baig on the sets of Dillagi

Dillagi was one of the most popular and liked drama serials in which Mehwish Hayat played the lead and Nadeem Baig directed it. Mehwish Hayat and the team worked day and night to complete this project in time. Shooting in a cold weather can sometimes be even more tiring than shooting in summers. Mehwish Hayat posted this picture from the sets of Dillagi which was taken by Humayun Saeed. Nadeem Baig and Mehwish Hayat both dozed off while the next scene was getting ready. This picture says a great deal about how sleep deprived these celebrities can be at times and how much hard work goes into making the dramas. Mehwish Hayat wrote that she was sure that these long working hours and sleepless night will eventually pay off. This picture was taken while they were shooting in Hyderabad. Humayun Saeed in his interviews very often praised Mehwish Hayat for her stamina and her ability to go on working without any breaks. It looks like these power naps must help Mehwish Hayat a lot.
