I’m playing the character of Nanhi ki nani, a derelict who lives on the periphery of society. She survives on whatever the mohalla [community] people give her and all she owns is her pillow — actually a pillow case in which she carries her belongings. No one cares for her. No one knows her name. Yet she has this akkad [attitude] about her. She’s pathetic yet funny.

How come it’s not the criteria in the outside world? In metro India, more and more people are now watching Pakistani serials because not only they carry a better story and performances, they don’t stretch needlessly. Yet, it must be said there are some good stories that relate to the girl child and other social issues, though the percentage is small. So I prefer theatre and mostly work with children, writing stories, conducting storytelling sessions and theatre workshops with Junoon Theatre.”

The fact that I had a baby at age 38 had more to do with my marrying late than for furthering my career. I was always clear that I wanted a child.
