Ahad and I feel that our private life is not for public consumption: Sajal Aly

Pakistani actress Sajal Aly recently added another feather to her cap as she was awarded for her contribution to film and television by the Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards (DIAFA).
In an interview with the Dubai-based newspaper Khaleej Times, she talked about work and personal life.
She said: "I think I am truly blessed and lucky. I don’t want to even think for a moment that I deserve this more than anyone else. I have done my work with full honesty and it has been a rewarding year," the Ye Dil Mera star told the publication.
"My fans and family have been my pillar of strength and I would like to dedicate this success to them. I have always been selective about the work that I like to do but getting an opportunity like that most of the time is also a blessing. I am truly humbled and blessed."
When asked unlike other Pakistani celebrity couples, we don't see Aly or Mir sharing pictures of themselves on Instagram, to which she said: "Ahad and I both feel that our private life is not for public consumption. Additionally, this year when we got married, the situation around the world wasn’t too favourable," she continued.
"Because of the virus, people have suffered losses of life and health. Amidst all this, I don’t think it would be wise to flash all those pictures of excursions and celebrations. My prayers are for all those who are suffering in these times."
The couple has worked together onscreen quite a few times too. Their obvious sizzling chemistry has always been lauded by the audience and they are, yet again, coming together for another show: Dhoop ki Deewar, a Pakistani original which is being produced by Indian streaming platform, Zee5.
Talking about the recent ban on the OTT platform, Aly remarked, "Having more and more mediums of entertainment is always a good idea. It opens avenues for the talent out there. It exposes you to new audiences. I am not too aware of what is happening on the Zee5 ban and its current status. But, I know that this is going to be resolved soon. Every now and then these issues crop up. I feel this is a temporary situation."
As for making a comeback on the big screen, the starlet said, "I haven’t signed on the dotted line but there are a few things in the pipeline. Inshallah, I will share the news with all of you soon."
