I didn’t do Balu Mahi to become eye-candy - Sadaf Kanwal

I didn’t do Balu Mahi to become eye candy – Sadaf Kanwal

Sadaf Kanwal is the rare breed of celebrity we all love – earnest, simple, forthright.

Sadaf Kanwal recently made her acting debut as Sharmeen Mukhtiyar, opposite Osman Khalid Butt and Ainy Jaffri in Haissam Hussain’s Balu Mahi for which she received a lot of praise. Many thought her character was controversial, some people even say that Sadaf was presented as eye candy while Ainy and Osman did all the hard work.

But the accomplished model is not worried about her detractors, claiming that everyone is entitled to their opinion. “I did not take up this film to portray myself as just another piece of eye-candy,” she told The Express Tribune. “It was the spiciness and wit behind Sharmeen’s character that I gravitated towards. It gave me room to be creative with my acting and expressions. Hence, my role was loved by all in the end.”

“It’s not that ‘Oh, I’m so pretty, I’ll look so good in this character.’ That won’t get me anywhere. And again, opting for Balu Mahi was solely because I wanted to experience that bubbliness of Sharmeen on screen and explore the acting arena,” 

She further said,  “I want to remain focused in both acting and modelling. The latter is more like my forte; I love doing it and I’m proud to say I’m good at it,” she quipped. “However, I do want to be remembered as an actor in the long run.”
