One of the most popular dramas of recent times, Meray Paas Tum Ho has concluded. The drama soar to new highs in terms of television TRPs and social media trends as well as had a fair share of controversy and criticism.
The serial starred industry’s finest and most celebrated talents like Ayeza Khan, Humayun Saeed, Adnan Siddiqui and Hira Mani in pivotal roles. However Ayeza wasn’t the only actress who was offered the role of Mehwish. The versatile actress Sonya Hussyn was also offered the part. However the Aise Hai Tanhai actress didn’t accept the role.
Recently during her interview with Iffat Omar the actress finally opened up about this. Sonya revealed that she rejected the role for her own personal reasons. She further elaborated that she doesn’t like it when women are portrayed in such negative light.
” Women already have a hard time getting acceptance in our society, so I didn’t want to give them another issue. Of course it is just a drama, they are all actors and it is just a story. But I wasn’t being able to accept this character to go to such lengths.”
Iffat Omar asked whether Sonya regrets missing out on a show that has become such a phenomal success.
” No not really, I had put in a lot of thought before taking this decision. In fact Nadeem bhai and Adnan (Siddique) were pulling my leg the other day that look how well it is doing. But even they knew that I didn’t want to do it.”
Not only is there no bad blood between them, she further shared how honored she feels being mentioned by the makers as their first choice.
“In fact I respect that Nadeem Baig and Humayun Saeed mentioned in recent interviews that I was their choice.”
On work front, Sonya Hussyn’s Ishq ZaheNaseeb just concluded. Audience will be able to catch Sonya in feature film Tich Button alongside Feroze Khan, Farhan Saeed and Iman Aly which is slated for release in 2020.
