Sadaf Kanwal Taking over the industry through her Charm.

FHM: Tell us about your journey?
SK: I started my journey 5 years ago, in 2010. It was difficult for me as i belong to a conservative family. The journey started at Saabs, where i went to get my hair done where Freiha Altaf was present to do Veet show. When Freiha inquired if i am a model, i was speechless and i replied no, but when she said i should become a model it gave me a boost to get into the field of media as i always wanted to do something in this field. When i started, i was disappointed because i was not getting what i wanted but after struggling few years 2014 became an amazing year for me as i was awarded with the Best Emerging Talent Award with alot of success and respect.

FHM: How do you see the change around you?
SK: My personality has changed, attitude of people towards me has changed, everything has changed positively and i like it.

FHM: What was the turning point in your career?
SK: In 2014, I did a shoot for Bonanza with NFK in Thailand which got me more fame and success. I was a new face for Bonanza on the billboard which was a turning point for both of us. After that i got multiple fashion and cover shoots etc. Then i did Khaadi campaign for  a year and now Alhamdullilah Gul Ahmed has signed a contract with me for a year.

FHM: What do you think of the friendships in our fashion industry? Are they beneficial or not?
SK: No! they are not and i totally believe in merit. Sometimes friendships are beneficial but one model can never be friends with another model. School friends can be good friends but professionally it is impossible.

FHM: Why are you so exclusive? You are hardly seen socializing, what is the reason behind it?
SK: I used to socialize a lot but now i am keeping it low because i have to give time to my family and friends. It is better to  stay less in the limelight rather than being over shadowed.
FHM: What is the mantra behind your beautiful skin?
I always had a fair complexion and nice skin, I used to use normal face-wash but then I went to Khiljee’s once, where he gave me some medicines and creams to apply on the face. I stopped using the creams as i was already fair. But i still use one cream which keeps me balanced including concealer.

FHM: According to our sources you have been approached for a Bollywood movie, do you have any plans of working in the film industry?
I would love work for the Pakistani film industry first rather than accepting offers from Bollywood. I would like to focus more on the acting as I have signed one drama as-well.

FHM: What is that one thing you always wished to have in your life?
Respect! The only thing i always wanted for myself as i always make sure no one gets hurt by my deeds.

FHM: What is your personal style statement?
Always be classy! Simply throw a pair of jeans with tee-shirt and shoes with a wrist watch, ring, sunglasses and a bag, and voila you are all good to go.

FHM: Any messages for the aspiring models or fans?
If i can be a model then you can be a model too. When my role models can become my colleagues then you can also turn the tables.
