Emerging star in Pakistan showbiz scene, Zara Noor Abbas stepped forth with a significant message for her followers as she shed light on who she appears to be on-screen is poles apart to her actual self.

Sharing photos of herself on Instagram radiating influential and strong feels donning a maroon ensemble with her hair down and a powerful mien, the actor stated:

“The time this photoshoot came out yesterday and i looked at it, immediately i thought to myself that oh, i dont really look how i usually look. Usually i am dressed as a damsel in distress who is usually playing a character of an innocent girl trapped up in the alcatraz of ' Zulm '

Usually i am dressed as a weak human being who cant speak up for herself. Who is working as a house lady. Or beaten by her lover. Eventually, a part of me also became that and this shoot looked to me too different because in these pictures i look like MYSELF,” she stated.

The time this photoshoot came out yesterday and i looked at it, immediately i thought to myself that oh, i dont really look how i usually look. ' Usually ' was the key word. Usually i am dressed as a damsel in distress who is usually playing a character of an innocent girl trapped up in the alcatraz of ' Zulm ' Usually i am dressed as a weak human being who cant speak up for herself. Who is working as a house lady. Or beaten by her lover. Or running around the city to make ends meet for her disabled brother and unwell neice for lots of pity. Eventually, a part of me also became that and this shoot looked to me too different because in these pictures i look like MYSELF. The woman who i believe in. Who is strong. Confident. Knows self worth. Respects self love. The woman my father and mother taught me to be. The woman my husband sees in me. The woman i forgot about. In this chaos of work and life. In this survival of the fittest. In the routine. The monotony. I forgot myself. Thanks to Jaffar, Amal, Bryan, Nida and Maida who made this shoot happen. I met myself after a long time. So if anyone out there is going on and on with life. Stop!! Look at yourself in the mirror and remind yourself of why you started all of this in the beginning. Remind yourself of WHO YOU ARE? OR remind yourself to KNOW WHO YOU ARE!! Just before anyone else does. @shakethingsupbyamal @maidaazmat @bryan.makeupartist @nidasheikhh @jaffer.hasan
