Jamil opened up about her reasons for rejecting the film that could have helped her make a remarkable career. However, as the actress put it, there really is no comparison between choosing to be a good mother and making a career.
Moreover, while talking about the film she said, that while she was offered the role later portrayed by Rani Mukherjee, and she had turned it down, the film provided her the opportunity to make some great new friends. She continued to say that meeting the lat Indian director, Yash Chopra was a turning point in her career.
Although the film was a massive hit back in the day, Pakistani fans can’t help but be in awe that a versatile actor such as Nadia Jamil did not get to add her own twist to it.
Nadia Jamil was my theater mentor in college…and what an amazing person she is! She made us laugh, she made us cry and she made us stronger for our performances. Wish she had taken this role…I think she would have been stunning in it! https://t.co/wdWsiCeR7i
