Zarnish believes that Dooniya is head over heels in love with Kashif because he was the one who brought her back to life. “She sees a hope in him that despite her mistreating the guy in the first half of the play,
he didn’t ran away. She thinks that because Kashif opened up to him about his life, family and even his first love, he is interested in her and therefore she hasn’t thought that Gohar might still be in the picture,” she said adding, “Something very exciting is due for those who ship Kashif and Dooniya’s couple.”

Since actresses are perceived as influencers, do you think that this ‘influencer’ badge comes with responsibility? To speak, process and do things rightfully, since you may in a way or other would be influencing society.
Being an actor today is very different from what it used to be. If you’re an actress with a following then you’re doing a lot more than acting. There’s a lot of responsibility, accountability and transparency. Your actions and words cannot be mindless anymore. We have to remember we’re talking to young minds – not just girls but also boys. This is why I love opting for challenging roles, ones that don’t necessarily fit the avatar of a stereotypical woman. There always has to be more.
Give is some insight into your role in Yeh Dil Mera?
I’m not going to reveal too much but what I will tell you is that my character is a very strong, independent, opinionated woman. She is the main twist in the plot. You’ll just have to watch the drama to know more.
Rapid, and full of fire!
