Pakistani actress Sajal Aly says she had refused a Hollywood movie for an extremely bold scene. Aly made the revelation in her latest interview.
Sajal Aly said that she turned down a big-budget Hollywood movie because of a bold scene in it. “If an actor is lucky, he or she gets offered more international work but, regardless, I would never turn my back on my own industry. All the international work that has come my way has been because those filmmakers had seen my work in Pakistan. And when I go abroad, I do so as a Pakistani. I want to keep contributing and giving back to my industry with the work that I do,” shared Sajal.
She continued, “I was also offered the title role in another Hollywood movie and the story was very exciting”. “However, there was a single, very bold scene in the movie that I knew I couldn’t do.”
Sajal said that she was not satisfied with the idea of using body-double for the bold scene. “Even if I managed to do so, the people of my country would have connected that scene with me. I wouldn’t want to disillusion them like that,” said Sajal in her interview.

Sajal Aly makes it to the top
Last month in December 2021, a UK-based publication, Eastern Eye, has named Pakistani celebrity Sajal Aly in its list of Top 50 Asian celebrities. Moreover, Sajal Aly is the only Pakistani celebrity to be included in the top 10 of the list at number seven.
Other Pakistani celebrities including Atif Aslam, Hadiqa Kiani, and Bilal Abbas have also been included in the list. Sajal Aly has surpassed global celebrities including Hollywood celebrities. Her recent drama serials and performance in the web series have brought the versatile actor into the spotlight.
“It is a great honor for me to be included in the top 10. The challenges Covid-19 brought with itself continued in 2021, but this did not deter me from working hard,” Sajal said of the honor.
