HOW DID YOU LAND INTO MODELLING…
ARMEENA RANA KHAN:
So there is a big story behind this. I have constantly feels that the media has always been my mission. The camera also follow me from a childish age. I say this for the reason that this is exactly how the media to attracts me once and for all. A very good friend to me “live” mode with his busy local channels. I was there from the scouts, “acting”, and the rest just pursues as well as modeling.

WHY NOT CATWALK…
ARK: I am primarily an actress and enjoy screen work much more than modelling. I like to create and leave a product whether it is a photographic image or a film. Catwalk modelling is not for me and does not fit in with my vision. The catwalk stuff I have done in the UK and abroad was so tiring and demanding behind tha stage that it turned me off that part of the industry.

WAS B TOWN YOUR AIM…..
ARK: Honestly, I never thought that I would get that far. I was sitting there one day and got a phone call from my agent about some producers who were looking for me. Withing a day I was talking to the producer on Skype, and after a week flying to India.

IS ACTING DIFFICULT…
ARK: Yes if it is done properly. You see it is not just about acting but understanding the other roles that go into the collaboration such as that of the director, producer, cameraman, etc. You have to five and perform according to the combined vision and like any craft you must practice and hone it. If you don’t then you look wooden on screen but when you get it right the you end up connecting with the emotions of the audience and that is the tricky part, especially since you are relying the rest of the team deliver their part. However with experience you start to enjoy it and it comes easier to you.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE OF WORKING IN INDIA…
ARK: It was very positive. The Indian people are very welcoming and there is buzz and energy about the country as it is advancing so fast. I had the advantage that Urdu is so close to Hindi and Pakistani’s and Indians share many cultural similarities, so it was easy for me to adjust and make that transition. The Indian media industry is advancing at an astonishing rate and overall it was a good learning experience also.

NISHAT GAVE YOU RECOGNITION ON MASSIVE LEVEL…
ARK: Nishat’s winter campaign was a breakthrough in my career in Pakistan. It went so well that they included me in their summer campaign too.

“I’ve rejected two Bolly films just because of the adult material they demanded. “It’s too much” is a film that you can watch with your family.”

YOU HAVE EXPOSURE TO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET, WHERE DO YOU SEE PFI?
ARK: Pakistan fashion is full of potential. I see so much talent and creativity here and the new work is very encouraging. I think the standards are as good as anywhere. However the problem is that we are in a competitive global environment and Pakistan Fashion industry cannot survive in isolated with context in such an environment. It must exist in a wider commercial framework supported by the socio-economic policies of the government. Only then will it survive. So for example European fashion or Indian fashion are doing well because they are promoted through other channels such as films, music, commercials, business, print media, tourism and cultural products. They have such a head start. But without similar support Pakistani fashion will end up fighting an uphill battle.

HOW CAN WE IMPROVE OUR IMAGE…
ARK: Pakistan Fashion Weeks are happening in England. The last one even succeeded in getting acknowledged by the mainstream newspapers. And it’s a great way to get recognition. It was a very proud moment for me to see all that. Our designers were getting attention that they deserved. But, I think, they should also put up their marketing campaigns abroad so more people can be informed. All that goes in the big magazines is actually paid. Pakistanis should also pay and grab their share in the market.

“Acting isn’t a layman’s job. You’ve to take up some characters that aren’t like you. But it’s the requirement of character that one has to follow no matter what type of person you are. At times you’ve to take up roles that are not acceptable for some people but that’s your job and people should understand that.”

WILL YOU TAKE UP LOCAL PROJECTS…

ARK: Yes if the script and project was right then of course I would. I have just finished a couple of serials but my schedule is tight as I have to go back to Europe this month and start promoting some projects there that have just released. But I love working in new and innovative Pakistani projects.

HOW WAS THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING IN “IT’S TOO MUCH”…
ARK: It’s a collaboration between Indian and British producers. It’s shot completely in London except songs. I’m playing the role of an arrogant, confused and typical model that goes through guys like anything. She doesn’t know what she wants in life and one day she happens to meet a model scout who has been through many models as well, They challenge each other. Later they fall in love. But overall, it’s a movie of break-ups and make-ups. It’s a fresh, young and colourful production, though it’s not a Yash Raj film, but I’m sure people will enjoy it.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU COMPARE YOURSELF WITH OTHERS…
ARK: Never, It is a dangerous road to go down and leads to unhappiness. We are all unique and things happen for us when they are meant to. As long as I challenge myself and come up to my own standards then I am happy. However what I do compare is my output and work. This is important because it healthy competition and inspires us to do better and increase the quality of our product. What I would like to do is break new barriers and markets such as the US and European cinema.

YOUR FITNESS REGIME…
ARK: I really have to work very hard to keep myself fit, just like anyone else. I work out in gym. I’ve to keep a constant check on my diet. Before shoots, I’ll go really down on the portions of my daily intake. I condemn all that personally because it’s unhealthy but unfortunately that’s the requirement of this industry. And I’ve such a body that catches fat on simply looking at the chocolate. It’s a tough job in Pakistan where models are required to be thin and skinny whereas in India they wanted us to gain weight. It’s very bizarre for me as they’re over that whole size-zero thing and we are still struck in it.

WHICH OF THE PAKISTANI MODEL YOU LIKE MOST…
ARK: I appreciate everyone. They’re all amazing people. Though I don’t have much time but whenever I meet them I feel exalted. However, Mehreen Syed is an amazing ambassador of Pakistan in UK. She is doing great work. I really feel that she is one of those few models that know how to conduct themselves out there, I would love to see our super-stunning models (including Mehreen) in Italy, Milan and other top notch ramps.

AMONG YOUR CONTEMPORARIES, WHO DO YOU LIKE…
ARK: I appreciate everyone. They’re all amazing people. However, Mehreen Syed is an amazing ambassador of Pakistan in UK. She is doing great work. I really feel that she is one of those few models that know how to conduct themselves out there. I want to see our models in Italy. Our models are super-stunning.

THOUGH IT’S TOO EARLY TO ASK BUT ARE THERE ANY WEDDING PLANS IN PIPELINE…
ARK: I’ve someone in my mind but I’m not sure if it’s the right time. I won’t be able to do justice. I’m pretty much married to my career for the time being, if you know what I mean. Last year I only spent three months in UK, six months in India and three in Canada. Now I’m here for four months! With such a tight schedule I can’t do justice to my family. So this isn’t the right time. Marriage is in my plans but when… Only God knows.

DID YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH ASIANA?
ARK: I enjoyed my chat with the HBL Celebrities staff tremendously. I found them to be very professional, friendly and easy going. You guys rock! I look forward to more interactions with Asiana (Pakistan) in the future. Thanks so much guys! Keep up the good work.

I’m working in so many countries and on so many projects. I’m in Canada, England, Pakistan and India simultaneously and I’m also going to States on a reconnaissance mission. I’m not saying that I’m better than anybody but there isn’t a precedent set so far.
