The first time we saw Zarnish Khan was in the play Sun Yara opposite Hassan Niazi and simply fell in love with her natural flair for acting . A good looking as well as a talented star, she went on to appear in plays like De Ijjazat , Aik Mohabbat Kafi Hai and Iss Chand Pe Daagh Nahi to name a few . With us enjoying talking to celebrities in a fun question answer round, we decided this week to choose Zarnish so we got to know her a bit more as we feel she is a bundle of talent for whom the sky is the limit.
So if like us you too are a fan of hers then read along to discover what she likes, dislikes plus a lot more.
1. Where were you born?
Zarnish: I was born in Lahore on 16 August 1993
2. Are you an only child?
Zarnish: No, I have 3 siblings and I am the youngest among them therefore, the most pampered one too - if you know what I mean!
3. Who discovered your talent for acting?
Zarnish: My Aunt is from the same industry, and when I was young, she always used to tell me that I can act as she has seen me performing in school plays. So, on one beautiful day, I was visiting her during the shoot, and she introduced me to her director and now here I am.
4. Three qualities you hate about yourself?
Zarnish: Firstly I am very headstrong and may be hard to convince if I already have a point of view about something. Secondly, I don’t plan for future and it gets me trouble sometimes and thirdly making new friends takes time with me.
5. Tea or coffee?
Zarnish: Definitely coffee, but I don’t mind having tea when it is rainy or I am with family.
6. Book you are reading these days?
Zarnish: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – If you haven’t seen the movie I would insist that you read it.
7. Favourite co-star and why?
Zarnish: I think it is hard to choose as I got along with everyone that I have worked with over the years and I respect them all for their support.
8. A character you wish you could have played
Zarnish: “Chammi” from the drama “Aangan”; there is something within me that tells me I should have played that role.

11. Which drama of yours you personally love
Zarnish: It is hard to choose one but I like “Laaj” and “De Ijazat”. In both drama serials my character was strong and independent.
12. Favourite holiday spot?

13. A song stuck in your head?
Zarnish: Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey, there is something unsettling and eerie about this song but it has very deep lyrics and amazing melody.
