Sehar Afzal - Fairytale beginnings

Almond-shaped eyes, long dark tresses, honeyed complexion, delicate features but topping it all off is the ‘go-getter’ attitude; Afzal just put the statement ‘bold brows’ to shame; making bold attitude the new ‘it’ thing. Cute, bubbly and knowing how to live may be her off-screen thing but on-screen, the model knows how to draw the camera’s snare and she’s even better at keeping it. The model-turned-actress made her screen debut in sort of an accident, what was supposed to be modeling project turned into a TV show, Tum Yaad Aye and her young career, still in its inception phase has already won her a few shows to her name. Sehar is also the face of big brands like Origins and has a shining future in the industry where she has imprinted her footfall already. We saw her twirl in Pari Hoon Main in a red dress, an ensemble so gorgeous, it looked like it belonged nowhere better but on her, and there we found a new screen princess. While acting and modeling keep the starlet busy, she is a woman of many talents including horse riding and travelling. In a cosy chat with MAG, Sehar brings her humour, class and the real her because she isn’t afraid to show who she is. Read on…
