The husband-wife duo will play an on-screen couple.

Asad Siddiqui - Zara Noor Abbas

Zara Noor Abbas had more than the average amount of fun working with husband Asad Siddiqui.

The actress made her television debut with Dharkan. Her performance in Khamoshi and Lamhay have really made her an audience favorite. She’s also set to make her cinematic debut with Parey Hut Love.

What people don’t know is that the actress got to work alongside husband Asad Siddiqui on another upcoming movieThe movie is being led by Wajahat Rauf.

“We Might Have Argued On the Sets”

When the actress was paired opposite her husband, she had her reservations. In an interview with a local media platform, the actress said that she expected arguments on set and a lack of professional decorum.

She needn’t have worried. Turns out that the two were professional and comfortable the entire time. The actress said she has learned more about her husband through this experience than ever before.

“I had certain preconceived notions about a husband and wife working on the same project. I expected that arguments and banters are bound to happen when partners work together as you tend to act like a husband and wife rather than co-actors. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t like that at all. Asad and I are so comfortable with each other on sets.”

The actress actually said that despite being married for a year the two did not know how their significant other behaves at work.

The two even teased each other about this. Asad was surprised to know that Zara is a prankster on set.

“Asad told me that we are seeing a new side of each other. It’s so funny because we have been married for a year and we had no clue how each of us behave at work. We joke and tease that ‘ye unprofessionalism nahi chalega ya makeup pe bohat time le rhe ho’ [This unprofessionalism will not work or your makeup is taking too much time],”

About Wajahat’s Film

Film-maker Wajahat Rauf is keeping the rest of the details about his new movie under wraps and Zara didn’t spill the beans either.

What we do know is that this film casts Zara Noor Abbas and Asad Siddiqui as an onscreen couple. The two have supporting roles.

Zara Noor also spoke about the different direction styles of Wajahat and Asim Raza. Since Asim Raza signed Zara first, she also accepts him as her first school and mentor.

Zara said that her character in Wajahat’s film is different from her role of Shabbo in Paray Hut Love. She said she approached the supporting role with the intention of progressing the story-line. She does not have any reservations on taking supporting roles as long as it’s well written.

“My role in Wajahat’s film is very different from what I have done as Shabbo in Parey Hut Love. People in our industry hesitate to take supporting roles, but I think the only pre-requisite is that a role has to be well-written.”

Zara also took these roles to break the rut of the damsel-in-distress character she usually plays. She wants to grow as an actor so she’s taking on a variety of characters.

Zara’s Family Card

Zara will share the screen with her mother Asma Abbas and Bushra Ansari in Deewar e Shab. The actress is set to play the role of a courtesan with Bushra Ansari playing her mother and Asma Abbas as her khala (the stuff of dreams).

The actress said that she grew as an actor from the role.

“I am playing a courtesan who sings and dances in mehfil. They are artistes, but the neighbourhood condescendingly calls them ‘ganay bajanay wali aurtein’. I had to work on my dialogue delivery as it needed a musical tone, so it was a different learning curve altogether,”

The role was a particularly difficult one. So how did this newbie bag a role alongside acting legends such as Bushra Ansari and Asma Abbas? Zara says that only talent survives in the industry.

She mentioned that with her background she only has access to opportunity not privilege. Zara says that she has been cast because of her talent. She cited Sajal Ali and Iqra Aziz as examples of nepotism not getting in their way.

“The only advantage I have as an insider is that I have access to the right people through my mother and khala. However, as a result directors/producers will meet you nicely or invite you to social gatherings, but you will only get work if you’re capable of performing. I have a privilege in comparison to girls who are struggling to get the first opportunity, but it will only take you so far.”

We can’t wait to see what Zara Noor Abbas has in store for us in her new movie.
