Syra Yousuf is a well-known name in Pakistan. The former VJ and ‘Chalay Thay Sath’ star recently got candid on camera in an interview. She opened up about her thoughts on her daughter Nooreh getting a half-sister, about second marriage and more.
While speaking, Syra shared that she always believed in the institution of marriage, and thinks that one should not spend their life alone. She added that right now there are no plans for her on the plate as she as a mother has to think about her daughter first.
Syra Yousuf shared:
I think marriage is beautiful and why spend your life alone? I don’t see the point in that. Right now I’m a mother, right now I have my responsibilities but she’s [Nooreh] also going to grow up and she will have her own life to live and I’d want her to live life on her terms. I have always thought one should have a companion, why not? Life becomes easier,
Furthermore, when talking about Sheroz and Sadaf Kanwal’s daughter Zahra, Yousuf shared that Nooreh’s happiness was through the roof. She had always wanted a sibling because most of her cousins and friends have one, and now in Zahra she has a younger sister.
You know all of her friends have siblings and even Alishba [Yousuf’s eldest sister], she has two kids, so she has seen siblings everywhere and she wanted one. So when Zahra was born she was on top of the world and it’s lovely to see, it makes me very happy to see her feel that way towards [her sister]. I don’t think we should pollute the minds of children. They are innocent, they are pure and we should keep it that way,
Yousuf also shared that she wants to do a TV drama and is currently in the process of reading different scripts.
I’ll be very honest, I’ve come to the conclusion that dramas and films take a lot of time. There are gruelling working hours, it takes a lot of time. I’m not going to pick up crappy scripts just because I have to be on screen. I’m a mother, I’d much rather spend time with my child. Till I don’t get a good script until I don’t feel like this is what I want to give my time to, I don’t see why I should pick a script.
When asked if she’d be absent from the screen for long because of these scripts, Yousuf said people “should be able to accommodate each other” because she’s a single mother and cannot leave her daughter for days on end.
