Dubaibliss got in touch with her and here’s what we’ve found out about who the real Saeeda is!!!
Q: How long have you been in the industry?
I have been in this industry since 2014 right before I started off shooting for film Kaptaan.
Q: How did you end up joining the industry?
It wasn’t a planned decision. I kind of stumbled into it. I took up the opportunities as they came my way and figured I was having too much fun with that!
Q: Would you recommend young people to follow suit and join the industry?
Yes of course why not, if you’re talented and passionate enough about pursuing this career then I think our industry could use some young blood and fresher faces desperately.
Q: Which one do you prefer more between acting and modelling and why?
Well I enjoy both but if I have to choose one I’d prefer acting. Acting provides a more diverse platform to sculpt your talent as you can challenge yourself through different roles and portray emotions on a varied scale. It might be more time consuming than modelling but that doesn’t bother me because I like to push myself and stretch my limits.
Q: Which has been your most memorable project till date?
I believe it is yet to come.
Q: What has been the most rewarding moment for you?
Well, for now it would have to be Kaptaan as that is my film and it was honor to be a part of the film and play the role of such an impactful woman.
Q: How do you handle the competition?
It doesn’t bother me as much. I am more inclined to focus on what I am doing and giving my best at that. I try to let my work speak for myself and stand out.
Q: How do you handle your critics?
I enjoy my critics. I am all up for constructive criticism that can help me improve and do better. And the ones that are not so constructive give me something to laugh about it and learn from.
Q: Shed some light on your upcoming projects?
I have signed another film and we go on floor this January 2017. I don’t want to give away more than that so you guys will have to stay tuned. Fingers crossed
Q: What is the one thing you hate about being in the industry?
Ah that’s a tough one. Sadly there are some pretentious people that one often has to deal with. Also people who are not passionate or loyal to their job and take work for granted. I believe if they merely want to goof around then it better to stay home and party instead.
Q: How do you balance your personal and professional life?
I keep it very simple. When I am at work I tend to fully concentrate and focus on that and when it’s time to go home and focus on family time. I prefer not mixing both and find it peaceful that way. If you know what you want juggling between the two isn’t very hard.
Q: What is the most ridiculous rumor you’ve heard about yourself?
That I have been married or have a child or linked up to few men from this industry which was highly absurd and funny. Not to mention entirely false.
Q: Name one actor you would love to work with?
Hmmm I guess let that be a secret for now 😉
