Sajal Aly talks about the one post-Mom project she’s most excited about!

Television creates artistes but cinema makes them superstars; that is true at least of Pakistan. You may or may not agree but that is my humble opinion. While Sajal has undoubtedly been created and trained in television, it is her performance in Mom that has elevated her to stardom. An artist needs that larger than life persona to be considered part of the sparkling galaxy of celestial beings that shine over and above mere mortals. And no one is shining brighter than Sajal Aly these days.

I had the honour of sitting down with Sajal for an informal chat last night. This was my first one-to-one conversation with her and I must say that my opinion of Sajal – that had been clouded by the interviews I had read, gossip columns, grapevines etc – changed completely. We spoke and discussed almost everything – you’ll read the full interview in Instep soon – but here’s a tiny extract, taken on video for Something Haute readers.

Sajal gives us the scoop on the most important post-Mom project, that she has just signed up for and will go on floors soon…



So there it is! While Sajal is going to appear in a couple of television dramas this year, she (and we) are most excited about the Sarmad Khoosat serial, which she has just signed. She’ll be working with Imran Abbas on this serial, which will go on floors soon. And we’ll update you once she signs her next film!
