Zara is doing great on Televison but she is also venturing into films with an upcoming Asim Raza Film Paray Hut Love where she plays a supporting role. But what is more surprising is that Zara was initially to do another film and that too as a leading lady.
In an interview to Galaxy Lollywood on being asked why she opted for Paray Hut Love, Zara said, “I was offered the main role in Teefa in Trouble back in the day but I had some family commitments that I could not get out of so I never made it to the audition. I was then offered a supporting role in Maula Jutt too but I refused it because I actually did not want a supporting role. Time went by and on the day of my Nikkah, I was approached by Asim Raza for a commercial but since I was busy with my wedding, I couldn’t do that either. Asim and I, however, stayed in touch even after that. One day, we were talking and Asim asked if I would like to do a film with him, even if I don’t get the main role. I said yes but on the condition that the script should be great.”
She contiuned, “The thing is we hardly have four to five people in total who make good film content in Pakistan and if the ‘dad’ of the film content calls you up himself, why would you say no? Why would you put your ego ahead of you and not accept the role even if it’s small? How can I even expect to climb the Mount Everest in one day.”
