Farhan Saeed is not as romantic as you think

Actor on what he thinks is the secret to on-screen success

To his fans, Farhan Saeed is the “King of Romance.” In 2014, he made his acting debut in the lead role of the HUM TV television series “de Ijazat jo tu.” Since then, the actor has been consistently putting on jaw-dropping performances. He is seen as a powerhouse, whether it was because of his acting in the acclaimed “Suno Chanda” where he met his wife Urwa Hoccane, or his most recent success “Mere Humsafar”.

Farhan recently spoke candidly in an interview about his experiences in the Pakistani show industry. He provided us with a taste of what it was like to work with his co-stars, what to anticipate on set, and more importantly, how he feels about the responses his characters have received from fans of the shows he has appeared in.

The majority of Pakistanis who were aware of Farhan’s marriage to his wife Urwa believed they had been divorced until a few weeks ago. Early last year, rumors of divorce began to circulate, claiming that the pair, who wed in 2016, had chosen to call it quits. Farhan clarified that although they have kept entirely silent in this regard, they are still husband and wife and have decided to keep their personal lives as secret as possible. He claimed that the couple would prefer to avoid scrutiny since sometimes the assumptions and remarks made about them by the public can be quite unpleasant. However, we won’t have to wait long for the pair to work together once more.

Farhan mentioned how he preferred a tranquil setting for his set. He expressed a desire to work with uncomplicated individuals who do not interfere with his ability to maintain inner peace and who also promote happiness among the cast as a whole.

He claimed that the fact that none of his co-stars have ever been difficult is one of the reasons why his series have done so well in the past.

Additionally, he discussed his friendship with co-star Nadia Afgan, who played his mother on the Suno Chanda set. He claimed that his connection with his mother was quite similar to what he and Nadia represented on screen, and when his mother watched it, she felt the exact same way.

The Mere Humsafar actor discussed how he is interested in the reactions of the fans to the dramas and appreciates knowing that they are so committed to it. He talked about how people become a part of the show and push it forward with their reactions, but they don’t realize it’s just a show and not real life.

He said that since it is fiction, there are instances when the characters are unaware of what is about to happen to them.

He spoke about how much he enjoyed acting and how it allowed him to depict a wide range of emotions that he couldn’t in real life. For instance, he mentioned how he wasn’t as romantic in his personal relationships, but you wouldn’t know that from watching him on television.

Farhan Saeed made an intriguing point on how acting could have a negative impact on a person. He said that it’s not normal to have so many emotions at one’s fingertips and that this will undoubtedly have a negative impact on how a person functions.

Additionally, he stated that because of how emotionally taxing their work is, it’s probably why all the actors are twisted to some extent.
