Even as Humaima Malick makes cross-border waves, Pakistani actor Sanam Saeed has expressed an interest in crossing over to B-town.

“Honestly a role is a role – whichever industry it is in – TV, stage or films,” the actor told Dawn.com in an email interview.

“If it [the role] appeals to me I’ll do it.”

Sanam also shares hopes of working on "meaningful" roles in the future.

“I prefer social dramas. I love to watch all [drama, comedy, romance, satire] genres, [but] as yet, I don’t know which one I’d fit in best or do justice to,” she said.

The actor wished Pakistani actors working in Bollywood, "the best of luck", but added that, "I’d like to see us Pakistani actors do more work that reflects our culture, morals and values. We should bring something new to the table. And I think it’s important to remain loyal to your home country, from where you started.”

The 29-year-old Zindagi Gulzari Hai star lauded her co-star, Fawad Khan’s success in Bollywood.

“I think he’s one lucky guy. He has the Midas touch. I wish him well and hope he continues to make his country proud. I’m sure many people would still like to see him be a part of our drama serials once in a blue moon too.”
