The celebrity sweethearts Aima Baig and Shahbaz Shigri participated in the game program Time Out with Ahsan Khan, where they revealed one other’s secrets, as well as their own career paths and goals for the future.
Aima said that she had worked as a co-host on the famous television program Mazaaq Raat before embarking on a career as a professional vocalist.
The last two years of my life have been spent as co-host of Mazaaq Raat. I was essentially the show’s “eye candy,” as the saying goes. I’m not afraid to say it since that’s exactly what I was doing while I was there, yet they treated me like a baby. In a literal sense, like a kid. They were like a second family to me. “I would irritate them to no end, and they would treat me as if I were a little child.”
“I was sitting in the audience once when a singer began performing one of my favorite songs,” she said. As a result, I needed to take a break. The director thought I was crying because I needed to go to the toilet, but it was really tears of joy because I really wanted to sing. I was simply sitting around doing absolutely nothing. And, to be really honest with you, since I am a bit of a frank person, I thought the individual wasn’t singing the song properly. The last thing I wanted to do was spoil the music. So I decided to speak to those people, and they inquired as to why I hadn’t said anything [about singing] before.”
Aima attributed all of the credit for her success and for pushing her to pursue a career as a musician to her mother.
“I would attribute all I’ve accomplished to my mother’s prayers and the support of my family. Because of all of the prayers my mother would send my way, I was always certain that whatever happened in my life will be for the best.”
Shahbaz, on the other hand, revealed some personal information about himself. He made his acting debut in the film Parey Hut Love, which he co-starred in with Maya Ali and Sheheryar Munawar, and he said that he had always desired to work in the entertainment industry.
“I wasn’t working in the traditional sector. My career as a filmmaker had begun in 2011. Making music videos and short films was my first step towards filmmaking. Then, around two years ago, I began performing professionally. In addition to that, I also produced. “It’s been two years now that I’ve been formally a member of the business,” the actor shared his thoughts on the subject.
“I’ve always wanted to be an actor, ever since I was a kid,” he went on to say. I’d play out my lines in front of a mirror before going on stage. However, I began my career in front of the camera. Following that, I was approached by individuals who encouraged me to go in front of the camera as well.”
The Do Bol singer said that the pair, who tied the knot in a lavish engagement ceremony earlier this year, first met on the set of the film in question.
It was for Parey Hut Love that I was performing Balma Bhagora, and I believe [Shahbaz] was the producer at the time. After that, we connected and had a good time. “I don’t spend a lot of time with other people and seldom make new acquaintances,” she said.
The Balma Bhagora singer went on to say that they did not want their engagement to be turned into a public relations event.
“We had made the decision not to make it a publicity stunt. This is something extremely important to us, therefore we wanted to make it as personal as possible. But, when I posted the photos and received all of the compliments on how beautiful we looked, I felt very good about myself. “I decided that I should open up more about my personal life to [my followers], and it worked out fantastic.”
With regards to the couple’s future plans, they have said that they want to tie the knot “very soon.” Aima has announced that she is working on two new songs, which will be released in the near future.
The director, Shahbaz, is directing two of my next songs. These songs have piqued my interest to a great extent. For the first time, I have written them all by myself. When the quarantine began, I took a year off and composed the songs throughout the month of Ramzan. “I presented them to Shiraz Uppal, who assisted me since you always need a producer,” says the author.
