Popular model and actress Amna Ilyas of Pakistan says that at the beginning of acting, she used to get nervous while speaking dialogues.
In a recent interview, she talked about the challenges she faced while acting in films.
The actress said that “in the beginning, I did not know how to speak dialogues, it was difficult for me to utter dialogues, I had to work hard, I did not know where to speak and where to stop, I read the script many times while I still get nervous in front of the camera.”
She said that after acting in films, I gained confidence from people’s positive responses.
The actress said that the place where she is today is a big achievement for her. She has not been pushed too much in the industry but she has worked hard.
It may be recalled that Amna had started her acting career with the film ‘Zinda Bhaag‘ made in 2013. Besides, she has also acted in the film ‘Good Morning Karachi‘.
The celebrity, who’s dedicated her free time to posting quirky recreations of problematic situations in the contemporary world, had to silence netizens after they maligned her for donning a deep necked blouse.
Sharing a series of photos draped in a saree by Erum Khan couture, the model edited her caption to say, “I had to rewrite my caption because I’m tired of thinking why my cleavage is the only thing being discussed in the comments.”
The Baji star went on, “You all don’t like my hair and makeup, gajra, earrings, or the embroidery on the blouse?” she asked.
Taking to her Insta stories to further elaborate on why the comments did not make sense to her, Ilyas shared, “There are so many reoccurring calamities in the world; poverty, rape, child abuse, wars, domestic violence, the list goes on. But it’s hilarious that my cleavage has topped them all.”
Taking a jibe at the priorities of certain people on social media, the celebrity concluded, “Our nation needs to focus on real issues instead of body parts.”
In October last year, Ilyas met with the furor of users on social media after an old interview of her from Hassan Sheheryar Yasin’s talk show went viral. The clip saw Ilyas body-shame former super model Aaminah Haq for having gained weight.
Following increased backlash, Ilyas told Haq in an unapologetic video that she cannot change what she did because no one comes into this world knowing everything.
