We aren’t shown onscreen. We are also part of some of the stories that are helping, but we no longer get the main character’s stories. In India, many actors our age are working on projects designed to cater to their age group. In Pakistan, however, we are yet to see such stories.”

I think that’s what keeps me going so far, but it’s not that I don’t get angry at some of the comments,” she said, adding, “When I get livid, I respond on social media. I was called out for putting on red lipstick, dressing however I like.
I am turning 50 for the first time. I thought I would sit in a corner, but I don’t think so. I am going to stay the same. I am not taking anything from anyone. I am just living my life.”
She straightforwardly said, “If my heart desires, I apply red lipstick. If my heart desires, I wear short clothes. No one is taking anything; this is my life, and no one has the right to disappoint or criticize me. Yeh mera jism hai, yeh meri marzi hai [it’s my body, it’s my right].”
She concluded, “It’s not just about my age, it’s about girls younger than me. In our country, it is believed that a woman grows old, she should live the life of the dead. Honestly, when you are fifty years old, you will know that your heart is still young and the age does not matter. Live and let live. What I am wearing and doing for myself, this is not for anyone’s concern.”
