Money can never get you complete satisfaction



Pakistan eminent actress Humaima Malick is busy on the other side of the showbiz career. Whereas the reason of gender parity in Pakistan needs wakefulness, our celebrities typically inclined to recoil from taking spots on matters that they think can make the problem for them.

However, Malick has determined to employ her post as country’s eminent luminary, supported women’s rights. Whereas she has been rather verbal in opposition to the Council of Islamic Ideology’s suggested revisions to women’s protection legislation, in recent times the Dekh Magar Pyaar Say actor has filmed a video message, supporting the Punjab Women Protection Bill 2016.

She was stating in an interview on becoming to this issue, “Money can never get you complete satisfaction. I know that because I have it and I still wake up in the middle of the night wanting to do something bigger and better.” She is determined to do something significant for the Pakistani women, “I want it to be greater than these hackneyed hair shampoo and beauty soap commercials.” She told she desires to employ her post to rally support for the law.

Women in Pakistan are 55% of the population that is the reason she wants to support them, “Education is essential for a woman. We discriminate between our people a lot in terms of social standing but education will change that.” She continued by saying that,  “Marriage does not limit a woman and the most successful women are those who are self-sufficient. By doing this video, I want to set examples for other celebrities as well.” Malick told about Bollywood famous actresses like Madhuri Dixit and Deepika Padukone who has been vocal in the past about domestic violence and women empowerment.

Raja Natwarlal, her recent venture in Bollywood was disappointed at the box office but Malick told that she provides her everything to each movie that she performs. “We take months to shoot a film and then [in just] one day we get to know whether it’s a flop or a hit so that takes a toll on me as an actor,” Malick told that this is the reason she is now turning more meticulous regarding her script choices.

Arth 2 —her Pakistani project which is quite close to her heart — is still in production. The movie will witness Malick performing a role enthused by Smita Patel’s character from the original Mahesh Bhatt movie. Bhatt had written Patel’s role later than having the signal from his personal relations with Bollywood diva Parveen Babi. She said “I’ve given so much to the Parveen Babi character. It takes a lot to give a performance like that,” Malick continued by adding “I believe that an actor who gives their best to a project should be doing one film a year and that’s what I’ve been doing.”
