While speaking to Dawn Images, Shaista Lodhi revealed that she had been approached for dramas earlier as well but due to extra responsibilities and workload she could not fulfill the promise made to her. However, this time around, the morning show host had taken a break from her usual shows and therefore, gave drama serials a shot.

The drama serial Khwaab Nagar has been directed Syed Atif Hussain and will showcase Shaista in the lead role.
Her debut TV serial Khwaab Nagar is scheduled to go on the air somewhere in October/November 2016.
This was not an easy decision to make for the gorgeous style diva. “There were so many questions crossing my mind at the time I accepted the offer: Will I be able to do it? Will I be able to do justice to it? Will I be successful in delivering the way my director and producer want me to?” said Shaista.
She was definitely a bit nervous because of the success she has received through morning shows and feared if it’s going to be the same.
“I was not nervous, but yes, a little confused, because of the questions crossing my mind and the success I achieved in the hosting field and whether it’ll be the same or not. Will people judge me and compare whether I’m a better host or actor. But I’ve done it and let’s see how people will react.”
The morning show famed celebrity is ready to make a leap towards dramas but will not leave working in dramas.
This will be Shahista’s first project onto the small screen- she will only take up more ventures if she receives good feedback from the one she has already signed.
“Let me just focus on acting right now, [busy with this drama] I don’t want to accept any other offer from any other productions house for the time being.”
At this point of time, she just concerned if the fans will accept her as an actor. She has been in the morning show arena for the past 9 years and it might be difficult for them to transition.
Fahad Mustafa’s production house Big Bang Entertainment’s ongoing drama Apkay Liay on ARY Digital is reaping quite the popularity amongst the audiences.
