Merub Ali says her Engagement happened due to 'Destiny' f

"Whenever it is written, it will happen.”

Merub Ali recently appeared on The Talk Talk Show and stated that her engagement to Asim Azhar was written in destiny, so it happened.

Discussing her engagement, Merub disclosed that it was both sets of parents who decided that this was the best thing to do.

She said: “They decided for us, and we agreed. Everyone was in agreement, it was very easy. It was written, and it happened.”

Asim told host Hassan Choudhary that she and Asim decided that they wanted to get married, but did not reveal much about their wedding plans.

She continued: “I don’t plan for my future, ever.

“Whenever you plan and things don’t work out, you are saddened. Whenever it is written, it will happen.”

Speaking about her love for education, career challenges, and pursuing her law degree, Merub Ali said:

“I’m actually interested in studying.

“I had to take a gap year in the middle – I had to come to Karachi, which is why I had one year left. But this was always the plan.”

During the interview, Merub was questioned why she chose to study law, to which she replied:

“I love law. When I was younger, I was interested in criminal law.

“I used to watch documentaries. I knew all the serial killers’ names. I knew what they’d done.

“I was very interested in getting into their heads to understand why they do what they do.”

When asked why she chose not to study psychiatry, Merub jokingly replied:

“I have so many issues of my own, how will I solve others’ issues?”

Delving into her past, Merub Ali spoke about her unexpected career in acting. She mentioned how her doctor encouraged her to audition to star in a music video for famous singer Sajjad Ali at the time.

“My visits to doctors started increasing due to my poor health. One of my doctors – Dr Ayesha, I still remember her name, she asked me to audition for a Sajjad Ali video.

“She encouraged me to audition… I auditioned and got an email from Zaw Ali. Thankfully I’d given my number.”

“Zaw called me and asked why I wasn’t checking my email. I was 15 or 16 years old, what did I know about checking emails?”

Merub went on to talk about the lack of script choices for younger actors who are starting their careers, admitting it was “discouraging”.

She said: “In the middle, in all honesty, I did get scripts – even in the beginning.

“But it’s very unfair and unfortunate that you don’t get the ‘break’ because of these scripts that established artists get when they get a good script.

“For the new kids – it’s very discouraging, I feel.”

Sana is from a law background who's pursuing her love of writing. She likes reading, music, cooking and making her own jam. Her motto is: "Taking the second step is always less scarier than taking the first."
