I am the highest paid actress in Pakistan, claims Humaima Malik
Pakistani actor and model Humaima Malik has claimed that she is the highest paid actress in Pakistan in an interview with Times of India (TOI).
Calling herself a self-made girl, the actress said she has never seen herself struggling or not getting opportunities.
Malik said she was only 14 when she became a top model in Pakistan and from then onwards, she began to endorse top brands.
At the age of 22, she was offered a role in Shoaib Mansoor’s film "Bol" who previously directed "Khuda Ke Liye" — which was both commercially successful and critically acclaimed. She was nominated for best actor for her role in several countries and eventually secured the Best Actress award at the London Asian Film Festival.
The 25-year-old said she has houses in Karachi, Dubai and London but mostly resides in Dubai with her parents.
Responding to whether she has been in a relationship, she said it was difficult to cope up with one being an actor as she was completely devoted to her work.
Citing her preferences for working with Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachan and Madhuri Dixit, she said she had grown up seeing Bachan’s acting whereas she underscored that Bollywood could never have a package like Madhuri again.
