Actress and morning show host Sanam Baloch made several revelations in a recent chat show, most notably one about her marriage. The Kankar star — who has always kept her personal life out of the limelight, spoke at length about her childhood, foray into the television and marriage.
Sanam — who once aspired to become the prime minister of the country — never dreamt about becoming an actress. Interestingly, it was actor Fahad Mustafa who got her a role in a teleplay Kaalak in which she had to shave her head. The play made her an overnight star.
Sanam later discussed how she only has hazy childhood memories due to her parent’s separation when she was very young. The actress also cleared the air about her sister Sabreen Hisbani, who sometimes is mistakenly regarded as her step sister because of their different surnames, which in fact is just a happenstance. “Our names were registered officially in this fashion since childhood; we are Hisbani Baloch by cast,” Sanam explained.

When asked how would she describe an ideal man, Sanam quickly responded: “He who doesn’t lie and is a thorough gentleman.”
Earlier, there were rumours about Sanam’s separation from her husband Abdullah Farhatullah, but neither the actress nor her husband had confirmed or denied the reports. During her conversation with host Samina Peerzada, the star talked about her sudden marriage and recounted how both of them joined a channel together by chance.
“We never planned our marriage but it happened organically. I really liked his disciplined nature and we became really good friends. We thought that that’s how we would spend our life forever,” she said adding, “He is a very nice guy and we share good intentions and will always be there for each other. However, we are not friends anymore,” she revealed.

Sanam also emphasized that it’s an individual’s right to live life on his/her own principles. “I would love to serve others in this lifetime, but it is not okay to let other people instruct you how to live your life. I have noticed that our society only gives this right to a man to take ownership of not only his life but also of the women around him,” she said.
