I got this off of paklinks:
She started her career as a model and now she also does acting on TV and compering, and apart from these full time occupations, she is also studying for her first year Inter. That's right! This young lady, who might be one of your favourite TV screen idols, who has reached these heights of stardom has hardly grown out of her teens and has just started her college education.
At a very early age, Sara Chaudhry took a bold step and started modeling, which was really hard for a newcomer at an early age. However, she says, "I got the chance to be a model when I was in 8th grade and it was my father's friend who helped me to start this career. Though I had always been fascinated by this profession since childhood, but after actually becoming a model I had to face a lot of criticism, which discouraged me to some extent."
However parents had always been very encouraging and have helped her at every critical juncture of her life. She says, "My parents are like my friends and they have always made the right decisions for me. It is because of my parent's prayers and efforts that I'm here and the credit for my success goes to them."
In the absence of any training institute youngsters have to face a lot of problems in this field. Sara related her experience, "In the beginning, I was a little confused as I never had done such things before, but something in my mind that gave me the confidence and strength to carry on i.e. to do something different. However, with the passage of time, a thought started coming into my mind that this was not what I really wanted; what I desired was to become an actress."
When she stepped into the acting profession she was fortunate to work with leading actors and she learned a lot from them. With the passage of time she also learned the tricks of the trade and became conscious about everything. Talking about the insecurity in this field she says, "There is no security in this job. You don't get your payments in time; sometimes the producers refuse to pay anything at all at the end of the day. If you want to remain afloat in this career, then you have to use all your wits in order to get your due payments."
Nowadays, she is working in many plays like Tum Kahan Hum Kahan, Malangni, Teray Pehloo Mein, Chokhat and Bandish being aired on different channels. Talking about her projects, she says, "It's really a wonderful experience to work with others and I'm learning as well. I am committed to my work and that keeps me moving on."
Although she wants to continue working in this field, but at the same time she feels that her marriage might be a turning point in her life. She was engaged in childhood to the choice of her parents. While working in a play, she met a person, but she did not know that he was the person with whom she had been engaged in her childhood. She confided this secret to us and told us, "It was like a typical Pakistani film story: here we were engaged since childhood, but we had never seen each other and later our sudden meeting revealed that secret. Now we are really happy about it. I might leave my work after marriage. Even if my fianc allows me to continue, I'll be doing fewer projects than at present."
At this point Sara's fianc Sami Khan, a very talented, versatile young man and a thorough gentleman stepped in. Sami Khan is one of the few young artists who have managed to establish themselves in a very short span of time.
Sami told us about his childhood in an affable mood, "I was a very good student and also good at cricket. After matriculation, I got admission in Government College, Lahore and then I went to UET." While he was studying in UET he got an offer to work in a movie, which he accepted and had to skip three papers for his last semester, but he did not tell any member of his family. As Sami confided, "Though I used to watch a lot of movies as a child but I did not have any idea that one day I myself would be on the big screen. I never dreamt that I would ever take up this profession. It couldn't believe this was happening to me."
His first movie which earned him stardom was Salakhein in which he worked with an entirely a new team, "It was the first experience in my life that I got the chance to show myself as an actor and I also learned a lot from it." After that role, he got back to his studies as this was in his priority and he was awarded his graduation degree. After completing his graduation, he took up this career properly to explore his talent.
Sami has worked so far in many commercials and plays that includes Dil Say Dil Tak, Situm, Apnay Huay Paraye, Angels and Teray Pehloo Mein. He has also worked in the Indian play Partition Aik Safar and he talks about that experience, "I was the only actor from Pakistan who worked in that play. The Indian drama industry is working according to international standards and it was a wonderful experience to work with them."
Regarding the current accepted view that our drama has lost the true essence and image of our culture and Indian dramas have been instrumental in bringing us to this pass, Sami stated, "We are doing a good job and the situation is not that disappointing, but the only thing that has marred our progress is that we have started copying Indians blindly. On the other hand there is no doubt that the Star Plays have captured our viewers, but we are responsible for this. Why did we provide them the space to supplant us? If we really want to compete with them then we need to improve the content of our dramas and presentation of our plays."
When asked why did he not take up modeling? Sami Khan says, "I am not very interested in that field because a person like me, who has started his career from the big screen, does not need it." But he has many creative plans in his mind, which he intends to implement soon in the future.
He told us that, currently he is working in many television serials along with the films. He is also working in a film that has been directed by Muammar Rana. Apart from this, he is acting in the soap opera Taray Pehlo Main.
Well, here was one couple about whom one can say, not that they will go far but that they already have gone far and achieved a lot.(SHOWBIZHUNGAMA.COM
GOOD LUCK TO SAMI AND SARA!!!!
