Sanam Jung began her career as a VJ before her first film, Dil e Muzter, became a smashing success and elevated her to the status of one of Pakistan’s most adored actresses. The diva has always been extremely picky about the work she accepts, and she has taken a very unusual career path.
Sanam Jung married Qassam Jaffri in the very beginning of her professional life. When she was expecting her daughter Alaya, she was hosting HUM TV’s morning programme Jago Pakistan Jago. Sanam experienced a lot of bullying.
She revealed that after the birth of her daughter, she used to hide herself on the set by standing behind chairs and using cue cards, in an interview with Fuchsia. The topic of body shaming is also being addressed in her most recent play, Pyari Mona.
She said that it had been a truly unpleasant experience for her and that she would feel very depressed upon returning from work. Sanam also mentioned that she had trouble organizing her wardrobe and that designers in Pakistan do not want to dress ladies who are outside their “normal size.” Qassam, her spouse, then assisted her in getting through it. He would hold her hands and reassure her that she is beautiful and that nothing would change or be affected by her size.
