Off the screen straight from the Bollywood hit Queen, Sabeeka Imam is a diva on the rise. Spotted on the ramp and frequently on the billboards, proving her mettle as she goes. We sit down with the model for a quick chat and she keeps it full of fire. Excerpts follow:

If your life was a movie, what genre would it be?

Definitely, a romantic yet dramatic comedy.

One thing you can eat any time of the day?


Favourite cartoon character of all time


An actor you would want to swap lives with?

Nobody because everything looks wonderful in other people's lives from the outside but we don't know what battles they are fighting; I'm happy fighting my own.

If you were to run away and start fresh, where would you go?

I moved to Lahore from London five years ago and I love Pakistan too much now to run away from it.

Best and worst purchase you have ever made?

Best purchase would be my rose gold Beats headphones. Worst purchase ever was an electronic egg boiling gadget. Completely useless!

Favourite book of all time

I am a complete bookworm! My favourites are Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak, Brida by Paulo Coelho and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.

One ridiculous thing you grew up believing as a child?

I believed you fall in love just once.

If you could pick your own nickname, what would it be?


What would a day with yourself look like?

Lots of cups of coffee, lots of makeup, lots of lights, lots of creative people around, lots of laughter, lots of great outfits and lots of camera flashes!

How do you take your coffee?

These days I'm enjoying black coffee. I'm usually a cappuccino kind of girl.

Home is....

Where your WiFi connects automatically!

A fear you have?

I fear when we meet people they are not what they portray to be. I fear people who wear masks in their daily lives. I fear people who live a life of deception.

One outrageous dream?

I want to adopt lots and lots of children! And one day, with the help of God, if I can open my own orphanage, all those children can be like my own and that dream too will come true.
