Pakistani actress Maya Ali has garnered a huge fan following for herself. The young star has managed to impress crowds with her acting skills in Aunn Zara, Diyar-e-Dil, Aik Nayee Cinderella, and many more. Last year, she made her film debut opposite Ali Zafar - who has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. But let's talk about Maya. The star has come a long way from where she started several years ago.
In an Instagram post, the actress spoke about her first time working for a TV show. She said, " I still remember my first day on TV when I had no support from anyone. Maya Ali was just a name to people, but I was ambitious, I had so many dreams and countless thoughts in my mind, and I knew I had to make my dreams come true somehow."
Being a young innocent girl, entering into the world of entertainment, Maya continued, "I had no idea about any fans. I didn't even know about social media. But then one day when I had gone to the supermarket, two girls came to me and asked, 'Are you Cinderella? And I said, 'No, I am Maya.' It was only after a while that I realised that they were talking about my drama serial, Aik Nayee Cinderella. I felt so good and a little shy at the same time."
The 29-year-old star added, "As time passed by, I started to focus on my acting career. People began to love my work and also criticise it. But I was open to all the feedback and Alhamdulillah today when I saw this post, which one of my fans tagged me in, I got goose bumps. My entire acting journey started to play out in front of my eyes and I can’t be more thankful to Allah for all the love people shower me with. Thank you for making it happen. Thank you for being with me in my bad and good times. Sometimes, I do feel a little let down and low but all your love gives me new hope."
Concluding her heartfelt post while celebrating 2.1 million followers on Instagram, Maya thanked all her fans for their immense support and the love they've given her since she first started out. "I have no words to decide what I should call this but I love you my squad."
The actress will be seen next in Paray Hut Love, which is all set to hit screens on Eidul Fitr.
