The ‘it’ girl of Pakistan’s entertainment industry, Maya Ali, is ruling the celluloid like a boss. From being the new girl on the block, to an award-winning actress; this VJ-turned-model-turned-actress is definitely the next big thing. She has multiple hit drama serials under her belt such as Diyar-e-Dil, Aunn Zara, and Mera Naam Yousuf Hai.

Her current serial, Mann Mayal, is also doing wonders at the box office and she has been nominated in the 'Best Actress' category for Diyar-e-Dil by 'Lux Style Awards' jury. Ali will soon be seen in Haseeb Hasan’s upcoming drama serial titled Sanam alongside Osman Khalid Butt and Hareem Farooq. But right now she is spending some quality time with her family in Lahore.

HIP decided to throw a few questions her way and she was game enough to answer them. As Kuch Kuch Hota Hota Hai, so eloquently taught us that rapid fire (quick and fiery question answer) sessions can easily reveal one's inner secrets. Let's see how many secrets did Maya Ali reveal:
