We caught up with the star to know more about her, here’s all that you wanted to know about Madiha Imam:

Who is your favorite style icon?

If I had to name someone from Pakistan I’d say Nazia Hasan. I found her style to be very individualist. Other than that, I really like Victoria Beckham.

What is the next big thing on your bucket list?

Nothing specific really, just being able to play characters which are less of Madiha and more of the character if that makes sense.

What was the worst punishment you received as a child?

The worst always was and still is when your parents look the other way and don’t talk to you. Hurts me in the gut! 

What is the strangest thing a fan has ever done or said to you?

I think there was this fan who travelled all the way from Sialkot to meet me and stood outside my work place for five consecutive days. Though it was strange I found it weirdly cool.

What is your annoying habit?

When I’m really tired I don’t speak, which is actually like not speaking at all. I’d look at you and not respond because I really don’t have the energy to even utter a single word. My mother detests the habit.

One thing that you still have or remember vividly from childhood days?

Holding my cats from their tails Yes! and they let me, all four of them.

Worst shopping mistake you have ever made?

Buying clothes and shoes without trying them on.

One unforgettable lesson you have learnt along the way?

Stick to your roots no matter where and however far you go in life. That’s who you are.

One thing you can’t stand?

Injustice and unfair treatment.

What advice will you give to your younger self?

My younger self wouldn’t listen to me or to anyone, so maybe now “Listen to what others have to say, you little spoiled brat!”
