Nadia Jamil has been a key figure in the Pakistani industry who has aided the re-establishment of contemporary theater in Pakistan. On the much awaited 100th episode of  Samina Peerzada’s show, Nadia talked about many interesting and sensitive topics, including details about her personal life.

One interesting  disclosure was when the actress shared that she was offered a role in Yash Chopra’s blockbuster Veer-Zaara.

“The turning point in my career was when I met Yash uncle and he offered me a role in Veer-Zaara. I was at crossroads but I came to the realization that if I get addicted to this (Bollywood), it will become very difficult. I had to choose between pursuing acting or being a hands-on mother.”

The role was offered to her when her son was merely two months old and she prioritized her family over her acting career.
