Popular Pakistani TV and Film actor Sonya Hussyn joins the long list of Pakistani celebrities who have created a YouTube channel to stay connected with their audience and share what goes behind the scenes.
It’s true that while we, the audience, often identify with and love the characters our favourite actors play onscreen, we have absolutely no idea what it’s like, behind the camera. And in a short video introducing her channel to her fans, Sonya says this is exactly what she wants to show on her YouTube channel.
“I thought there should be something to connect directly with the audience and tell them what happens behind the scenes,” she shared on Instagram.
“You know, I used to think sometimes, that the nature of our work is so serious but in front of the camera, it’s a different character and different personality altogether.”
“There should be a platform through which we can connect with you all. So finally Sonya Hussyn has a YouTube channel and it’s great news!” the Mohabbat Tujhe Alvida actor revealed.
The actor’s first YouTube video features the fun behind the camera and also includes an interesting conversation with her Sarab costar, Sami Khan. Have a look:
