 Saba Hameed: "Iffat, I am very blessed because I spent all my life thinking I was fair-skinned. This (colourism) was not a problem back then, it became one later. I learned very late that there was a person who was dark-skinned and she wasn’t cast because of that. Very talented, very beautiful, tall and size zero type situation.

Iffat: “With me, this has happened a lot. For my skin colour, people conceive very negative acting roles. Negative roles have more meat. Otherwise, all you have to say is aao khaana kha lo (come and have food).
