KARACHI: If you are active on social media, you probably know that one of the woke voices of celebrities from the Pakistani entertainment industry is Nadia Jamil’s.
The actor and mother recently made an appearance on the Samina Peerzada online talk show where she divulged details about her life.
In one of the revelations made by her, Jamil said she was offered a role opposite the iconic King Khan of Bollywood, famed actor Shah Rukh Khan in his blockbuster film ‘Veer-Zaara’.
Jamil shared that it was a turning point in her career to meet ‘Veer-Zaara’ director, the late Yash Chopra after he offered her the role of Rani Mukherjee opposite SRK.
She added that she unfortunately had to turn the role down because she had to take of her newborn son.
“The turning point in my career was when I met Yash Chopra, Veer-Zaara was about to happen. Ammi was telling me she’d come with me or take care of my children, my son was two months old then, but I knew that if I moved in this direction now it would become an addiction which I would be unable to leave.”
She added, “It would shape the kind of mother I would become. I had to choose between being a mom or an actress but there isn’t even a comparison between the two. So I turned it down, however, I became very close to Yash Chopra and his family in the process.”
