An avid actor, model and anchor, the bonafide beauty has many successful ventures to her credit, including a number of tele-fictions. She further hopes to work in movies, once she comes across the right script. Safa opens up about her upcoming projects and aspirations in a recent conversation with The Daily Star.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
2018 was a great year for me, both on the personal and professional front. I was able to be a part of fantastic projects and I was surrounded by friends and loved ones. This year, I hope to continue doing good work and take part in things that will challenge me as an artiste.
What can you tell us about your projects for 2019?
I will be the host as well as a judge of Teer Little Chef on Duronto TV. I am looking forward to the experience because being a judge for a reality show of this caliber will be a new and challenging job for me. On the other hand, I am also thrilled to be hosting the show.
It seems like you are quite a busy person with your different projects. How do you manage your time and set your goals?
I am constantly immersed in my work and I hardly get any breathers in between for myself. Nonetheless, I love what I do, so, I cannot really complain.
What factors draw you to a project as an actor?
I am quite selective about scripts because I want to be a part of stories that the audience can connect with. I want them to remember me for the characters that I bring to life on screen.
Recently, Potaka, a tele-fiction that you acted in, became the centre of attention upon its release. What are your comments on the audience's reaction to Potaka?
I believe that the audience was pleasantly surprised to see me play the role of a housemaid in Potaka. It was an avatar in which they had not seen me before. I am still receiving plenty of compliments on my performance in Potaka, and it has opened up many opportunities for me.
Would your fans see you in films any time soon?
I would love to work in the film industry of our country. Even though I have received many film offers, nothing has interested me as of yet.
