Soniya Hussain ventured into showbiz with no plans of becoming an actor, but in just five years she has done commercials, has a long list of TV plays to her credit and has proved herself in Jami’s film Moor with her short yet powerful role as the female lead. Soniya spoke to Images on Sunday about where her career will be heading after this turning point.
“I was still at university studying physiology and wanted to be a news anchor. I had rather idealistic views about media bringing the truth to people, but when they auditioned me, they told me that I did not look mature enough on the screen and should come back after doing my Masters.”
Sometime later at another audition, she was then spotted by director Ali Saeed who offered her the lead in drama serial Don’t Jealous.
“At first, I refused but my father encouraged me to accept the role. A few more plays followed but I couldn’t do too much work, as my classes at the university took a lot of my time. It has only been since the last two years that I have started to increase my workload on TV.”
What were the initial days of acting like? “I had no clue about acting and needed a lot of guidance and training. I would watch classic films to learn acting and the work of senior actors like Badar Khalil, Faisal Quraishi and Qazi Wajid. I watched Khuda ki Basti, Toba Tek Singh. Now I feel I could not have been in any other field.”
