Pakistani actress Zara Noor Abbas has been around for five years and, as she admits, she has been fortunate to have had a smooth journey in the industry so far.
She debuted with drama serial Dharkan in 2016, followed by Khamoshi which was a huge hit. However, Lamhe and Qaid, that aired in the following years, didn’t work well for her and she decided to experiment with something different, according to a report by The News.
In her latest project Zebaish, that is currently on-air, Zara is essaying the role of Naushaba, a layered and completely different character than her past work. Two episodes into the serial, it is generating mixed reviews; one feels it is too early to comment on the narrative just yet. However, Zara claims that it is very promising and her character goes through several transitions.
“It is something that I have never done before; it’s tailor-made for me. Khala (Bushra Ansari) called me and said that she wanted to write something for me and this is it,” Zara admits, crediting Ansari and director Iqbal Hussain for her character and dialogues.
The drama features an ensemble cast including Bushra Ansari, Shabbir Jan, Babar Ali, Asma Abbas, Asad Siddiqui and Zoya Nasir aside from Zara.
