You chose to enter modelling at a time when it was considered taboo for decent girls from ‘good families’ to opt for modelling as a career path.
What prompted this decision and was this something you always wanted to do? How supportive was your family?
IMAN ALI: I think at the time I started modelling, girls from good families were the ones choosing modelling as a career and I feel the opposite is true nowadays.
My family was not supportive at all; my father was very against it and said he would break my legs if I did this. I said, “Baba when you break my legs I’ll leave modelling because I wouldn’t be able to do it anyway” (Laughs). I wanted the financial support it would provide, considering the household issues we had but it just happened for me.
Wherever I would go, I would get the same question: ‘why don’t you model?’, because I was tall and thin.
This is a big misconception that models become thin; models become models because they were thin to begin with.
Was this a conscious decision to expand your portfolio or an opportunity you stumbled on?
IA: Everyone wanted me to act as my father was an actor, but I didn’t want to do the kind of films being made and offered. Then Shoaib Mansoor made the perfect film with an amazing script; not the kind of film anyone had thought of and it was just my kind of thing which no one had conceived before and I just accepted the role.
