Neelam Munir and Ayeza Khan turned down the offer to act in the ground-breaking ‘Ishq Zahe Naseeb’

Ishq Zahe Naseeb was a ground-breaking blockbuster drama serial that aired on Hum TV and captured the audience’s attention due to its unique storyline.

The story of the serial was one of a kind and different. It was an awareness drama that put light on people suffering from ‘Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder). Besides the storyline, one more thing that needs to be appreciated about the drama is the talented cast.

Yumna Zaidi’s role

Yumna Zaidi, to begin with, played the role of a Shakira, and well, she pulled it off in the best way possible. Zahid Ahmed played the main character of the individual suffering from DID, and we believe no one could’ve done it better than him. Then comes Sonya Hussyn, who played the brave Gohar, she was fearless, and her performance stunned everyone. Not to forget, characters like Zarnish Khan and Sami Khan were prominent and well-portrayed too.

In a recent interview, Yumna spilled out a significant fact about her role, saying that it was first offered to Neelam Munir and Ayeza khan, but both ‘refused’ to do it. Yumna added that she was confused over why both of these leading actresses would skip such a character and decline the offer. However, she trusted her director, who aimed at making the role a ‘memorable one.’

We think Yumna Zaidi was great as Shakira. The role was unique, and the actress made sure to play it in a classical manner, making Shakira win the hearts of many. From her sentence delivery to her expressions, everything was right on point.
