Alif was God sent project, don’t want to be scared to face God on death bed: Kubra Khan

Kubra Khan, the beautiful and elegant actress, opened up about her spiritual journey and hinted at quitting the showbiz industry if she failed to maintain a balance between her life and career; just like Hamza Ali Abbasi who recently bid farewell to the entertainment industry on spiritual grounds.

Alif was a ‘Godsent’ project. Kubra Khan in her recent interview with BBC Asian Network talked about the dark phase she was passing through in her life. The wonderful actress, Kubra Khan, spoke at lengths about her transformation and spiritual awakening in her life.

Khan said that her character of Husn e Jahan resonated with her real self. Her spiritual journey in the serial simulated her spiritual transformation in real life. Kubra said in several scenes in the drama she cried naturally that reflected her deep desire to weep endlessly.

“Husn e Jahan is in the entertainment industry, but nobody knows what’s her core. I’m in the entertainment industry too, but nobody knows my core either. I’m [known as] that person who has an item song — but nobody knows what I do at home or that I pray or have a connection with Allah.

Last year, Kubra Khan sat in ‘Aitkaaf’ in Ramadan and after a few months, Kubra’s item song in a movie was released for which actress garnered dissension on social media for hypocrisy.

Social media users slammed the actress that on one hand, she is claiming to get close to Allah, on the other hand, performing in an indecent item song.

Kubra added that Alif came at a point when she was drenched in darkness in her life and did not know where she stands. At that moment she had taken a step back from the entertainment industry and socialization. This was the moment when internal and external changes had started happening in her life. She added that her character Husn e Jahan led her way in real life.

“I didn’t act Husn e Jahan; I think I lived Husn e Jahan. She changed my life so much that I became engrossed into it.”

“Some people may admit to it and some may not, but I think everyone goes through that point where they just don’t know what’s happening anymore,” said the actress.

In the conversation, the actress said that a year ago spiritual awakening happened in her life. She asserted that she is a better person than last year and cherishes the transformation that happened to her internally.

She added that she has developed motherly sentiments for Pehlaaj Hassan during the shoots. Pehlaaj played Hamza Ali Abbasi’s childhood and son of Kubra Khan in the serial.
