While many models are now branching into the acting world, supermodel Nadia Hussain has revealed that she, too, would love to do so. However, she wishes for a lead role that holds a lot of meaning.
In an interview, Nadia Hussain said that after spending some time in the fashion industry, .she started receiving offers to work on TV. But her main focus always remained to model.
“I was a part of numerous fashion shows in Pakistan and also represented the country on a global platform, which helped me create my own identity,”
Nadia Hussain further added that she even ventured into a fashion business of her own because it was a part of her profession.
Currently, the 39-year-old owns the Nadia Hussain Lawn line and the Nadia Hussain Salon in Karachi. Being a dentist by degree, Nadia Hussain also works at her dental clinic.
But Nadia Hussain still receives offers for acting. She shared,
“A well-known personality from our film industry offered me a role for a film recently but after reading the script and getting to know about my character, I refused it.”
Nadia Hussain maintained that acting requires a lot of time and effort which is useless if the character is not strong or powerful enough.
“I think whenever I do sign a film, I’ll make sure that it’s a lead role.”
The superstar also discussed celebrities who have been taking up projects out of Pakistan, especially Bollywood. But according to her, working in Bollywood is not a big deal.
“I only wish to work on something important that delivers a good message. I prefer unique roles which help me create an identity of my own. I will choose to do something that benefits my country.”
Nonetheless, the mother-of-four also confessed that she has received offers from Bollywood as well.
“I refused the offers I got from Bollywood because Pakistan is my priority. I was blessed with a lot of fame, honour and respect in this country and I wish to live, work and die in Pakistan.”
