Nausheen Shah is a very popular and respected actress of the Pakistani entertainment industry. The talented actress has made a name for herself by portraying very interesting characters in acclaimed drama serials such as Pani Jesa Payar, Noor Jehan, Rehai, Khud Parast and Dewaar-e-Shab to name a few.
Fans love Nausheen Shah for her bold and blunt personality. However, she was not always this confident. Did you know that she was beaten up by her mother for joining the entertainment business?
The actress appeared as a guest on Reema Khan’s Ramadan Special Baran e Rehmat. On the show, Nausheen shared the story of how she joined the showbiz industry. The actress revealed that she was once approached by a producer for a small role in a drama that featured Meera and the host herself, Reema Khan!
Nausheen said that she had to borrow clothes from her friend because she wanted to keep it a secret from her family. The role earned her just Rs. 3,000. Unfortunately, her secret was exposed as during a family dinner the drama was being aired on TV. Nausheen’s younger brother was able to spot her in the drama. As a result, her mother beat her up pretty badly. Later on, Nausheen’s father calmly spoke to her in his room. The actress felt ashamed about the whole incident.
Nausheen Shah is a much more confident and well-respected figure of the industry now, and she is very close with her mother. Fans will get a chance to see her star opposite Mohsin Abbas Haider in the upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Karachi. The film’s release was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
