Who doesn’t know Iman Aly? The gorgeous diva has been the face of LUX, the brand ambassador of top brands and one of the most famous models and actors of Pakistan. Even though Iman doesn’t have a very solid social media presence and a huge number of films or dramas to her credit, it is noteworthy that the actress has some solid body of work to her name including the soul shattering Khuda Ke Liye, Bol and the very artistic Mah e Mir.
Iman Aly will next be seen alongside Farhan Saeed, Feroze Khan and Sonya Hussyn in the Qasim Ali Mureed directorial Tich Button. However, did you know that in the span of her career, Iman Aly has turned down major blockbuster films including Punjab Nahi Jaungi and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. Iman also turned down the main lead in Bol, the character played by Humaima Malick. Aly shared that she had major reservations about that particular character which is why she turned down the lead and agreed to play a small character in the film.
In a recent interview with Vasay Chaudhry, Iman made the above revelations alongside sharing the reason that she turned down major blockbuster films including Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Karachi Se Lahore, Jawani Phir Nhi Ani, Na Maloom Afraad, all of which turned out to be major blockbusters.
Although jokingly, Iman Aly shared with Vasay that she had most films for the sake of her friendship with the producers/directors and turned down many because she didn’t like the writer or any other person in the film. Iman shared that she turned down Na Maloom Afraad and Jawani Phir Nahi Ani because it was ”boys ki film”. Aly also added that the reason for turning down Punjab Nahi Jaungi was that she felt the write had deceived the very character of the lead he had written. “The writer writes well about Punjab and its technicalities but there were reservations about the character’s development,” said Iman adding that although when the film released, changes had been made in that particular character but her reservations still stood strong.
For Karachi se Lahore Iman said that she didn’t understand the character offered to her, “it didn’t make any sense to me,” were her exact words.
Iman also shared that she had written three scripts herself about various genres but she still had to find someone who would be interested to produce. Alongside the shocking revelations about turning down major films, Iman Aly also shared how she didn’t find herself or her face beautiful enough to have pictures taken of her. The actress added that she felt that people should be okay with the way if one doesn’t like his/her face enough.
