Maya Ali presented her terms to Bollywood

Maya Ali is one of the most talented, charming and renowned Pakistani actress. She started her career as VJ on different TV channels like Samma TV, Waqt News and Duniya News.

Since 2012, she has appeared in many super hit drama serials. She first appeared as an actress in the drama serial “Durr-e-Shahwar” on HUM TV. And then she got the role in the drama serial “Aik Nayee Cinderella.” Since then the doors of success opened for her. She has not only been appeared in hit drama serials but also she has done many commercials, fashion shoots for the leading brands, and done ramp walk as well. Now it’s time to spread the magic across the border.

Since she is so talented and the gorgeous, so she could be another one to appear in Bollywood movies. As her drama characters have already created the waves across the border.

Few weeks ago, a production company invited Maya Ali to India. While speaking to a news and entertainment portal, she stated,

“They called my manager around three months ago and asked for my availability. Before anything, I mentioned my restrictions and when they were okay with it, my visa process began.”

She proved her enthusiasm when she told the production house that she wasn’t desperate to debut on the silver screen and would work on her own terms.

“I met the producer, male lead, and the director. I told them directly that I am not dying to come to Bollywood or anything because I have a lot of work in my own country.”

The meetings have gone smooth, but reportedly Maya Ali has a few reservations regarding her character’s wardrobe.

“I have some issues regarding wardrobe. Until those issues are sorted out, I won’t say yes to them.”

It is really impressive that Maya Ali respect her moral values, and will only deal if the things will go in her way. Maya Ali had also confirmed that she’ll never compromise on quality, especially on the other side of border.

She further stated,

“I recently met Mahira Khan, and she told me that when she is on the sets of Raees, she has Pakistan’s flag carved on her shoulder. Similarly, I believe I can’t wear revealing clothes or be part of make-out scenes. There’s a lot of respect that I’ve earned here, and I have a responsibility as a public figure. I’d rather do an A-Grade Pakistani film than do a C-Grade film there”

Surely, Maya Ali is an avatar of amazing and strong willed woman.
