She expressed her humility and gratitude for her achievements as she said, “I think I am truly blessed and lucky. I don’t want to even think for a moment that I deserve this more than anyone else. I have done my work with full honesty and it has been a rewarding year. My fans and family have been my pillar of strength and I would like to dedicate this success to them.

Upon being asked why she does not post many pictures with her husband, Ahad Raza Mir, despite being married to him, the actress enforced the idea that her relationship is a private matter, while also pointing out that the times have been tough, and feels that her posting pictures with Ahad might be insensitive towards people going through a tough time. “Me and Ahad, we both feel that our private life is not for public consumption. Additionally, this year when we got married, the situation around the world wasn’t too favorable. Because of the virus, people have suffered losses of life and health. Amidst all this, I don’t think it would be wise to flash all those pictures of excursions and celebrations. My prayers are for all those who are suffering in these times.”
