  1. Any special memories while you were shooting your movie ‘Maan jao na’?

Every film has a lot of memories attached to it, but I think my equation with my director and DOP and all the fun times we had while shooting is what I carried back with me.  

2.You grew up on a diet of Bollywood movies so what was it like working with an all Pakistani cast in ‘Maan jao na’?

You could easily say I thrive on Bollywood movies, and my decision to act came from here only. Pakistani industry is different, people are different, their ways of working is different, initially, it took me some time to settle down, but people were very kind and welcoming so I didn’t face a lot of issues.

3.How was your experience working with the Indian heartthrobs Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan?

It was like a dream, they are such wonderful human beings. So, humble and warm, they won’t make you feel like you are an outsider or a newcomer. It was an amazing experience.

4.What are the next things you’re working on?

At the moment I am learning Punjabi, my next project sees me in a Punjabi girl avatar. I am pretty excited and geared up for that.

5.We’d like to know about yourself.

Naaz as a person is someone who loves having fun, quite an extrovert, but at the same time I am a very disciplined individual, it comes from my upbringing I guess. I have this soft side to me, which still loves to go out and have fun, but my work restricts me since I have to always put my best foot forward when it comes to being on the job, I end up sleeping early, and I feel I might have become tad bit boring. **giggles**

6.What’s so special about Maan jao na’?

 Considering this was the first Pakistani movie I did, it makes it special just for that. The memories, the co-actors, the crew and all the people involved in the film who made me extremely comfortable in the completely new environment is what makes this film special.

1- What motivates you to act

Honestly getting inside the character, feeling your way around nuances of that individual character. My viewers/fans reaction and love towards me is one of the biggest motivation of course.

2-Your favourite ad in India and why?

Well, my favourite ad has been undoubtedly the series of ads which I did with SRK, I have been his huge fan since I was a little kid and always wanted to work with him so finally, it happened, and it was a dream come true. Although we worked together for 5 days what I liked about it was that in those 5 days I got to learn a lot from him and the fact that he is one of the humblest people I’ve met.

3.Can you share any special moment you had while shooting Maan Jao Naa

There isn’t a special moment that I can think of at the moment, but there was one time when during the shoot I had to save one of the characters from drowning and it was somewhere around February, the temperature fell to 6 or 7 degrees and I had to swim in that freezing cold water for a good 40 to 45 minutes, I still can’t think of any reason as to what I did which caused the director to shoot the scenes in that extreme weather.

4.What outcomes are you expecting from your movie Maan Jao Naa

I have really high hopes for this film and really looking forward to the release of the film. I think this will be my switch over from TV industry to the Pakistani cinema as I’ve never worked in a Pakistani film before, so I’m really looking forward towards the release.

5.Tell us something about yourself.

I am one determined individual who doesn’t hesitate to work towards his goal and achieve them. Giving up doesn’t exist in my dictionary. I am a very good listener, very straight up but also stubborn at times. I’m someone who can’t be described in a few words or in such a short time, I can send you different content daily. Lol.

It depends on whether you wanna know the good things or bad things about me lol …
