For those of us watching Diyar-e Dil, Arjumand’s character has inspired at lot of debate and discussion. Whether we agree or disagree with how this character responds and reacts to various situations there is no doubt that Hareem Farooq has brought Arjumand alive in a way that makes it hard to ignore her as just another simpering, submissive woman living in the male dominated mahol of Agha jan’s majestic haveli.
Though a recent entrant in the world of TV serials – as Sajeela in Mere Humdum Mere Dost, Saman in Mausam, and Ayesha in the recently concluded Dusri Biwi – Hareem is not really a newcomer when it comes to acting. She started off with theater, honing her craft under the eagle eye of the legendary Anwar Maqsood in stage plays like Pawnay 14 August and Aangan Terha. 2013 saw Hareem make her film debut with the horror film Siyaah, where she scared the heck out of me with her character Zara.
Hareem’s experience with theater and film stood her in good stead when she made her debut on TV; her confident outing earned her the Best New Sensation (Female) Award at the recently held Hum Awards in Dubai.
Most recently Hareem’s been in the news for co-producing Janaan. Written by Osman Khalid Butt and directed by debutant director Reham Khan, this movie is described as a romantic comedy about a Pakhtun family.
As is obvious even from this very quick bio, Hareem Farooq is very unlike the bechari type characters we’ve seen her portray on TV so far. Whether this is by design or happenstance is something we now have a chance to ask the lady herself. And with this I invite you all to use this opportunity to give feedback and ask interesting and fun questions, the kind you’ve always wished somebody would ask. Koshish kar key avoid the usual type ke sawal takey mil saken kuch mazedar aur masaledar jawab.
Finally, a few housekeeping issues:
- The last date for posting your questions is Monday, June 8th 2015.
- Post each question as a separate comment.
- Avoid personal comments and refrain from rude questions and abusive language.
- Please try to not ask questions that’ve already been asked.
So bas ab aap kijeye sochna shuru aur likh bhejye apney sawal takey de saken Hareem unke jawaab!
