Lollywood diva Zoya Nasir continues to soar high with her remarkable portrayals as Narmeen in "Dobara" and Sameen in "Mere Humsafar," but she has been making waves for her impeccable fashion sense and wardrobe selections.

The 31-year-old actress fearlessly embraces her unique style, consistently making bold and unapologetic fashion statements. Recently, she opened up about her personal life in a candid interview, revealing that she had been married at the age of 19.

During an interview with Nauman Ijaz on G Sarkar, Nasir openly discussed her divorce and advocated for the rights of young girls to pursue education and careers, and maintain independence before entering marriage. She revealed that she got married at 19 to a man eight years her senior, but unfortunately the marriage ended in divorce. Reflecting on her early marriage, she admitted to lacking the assertiveness and the ability to navigate the expectations as a daughter-in-law at such a young age.

She recounted the struggles she faced in her early marriage, emphasizing that she was not treated as an equal partner, but rather burdened with responsibilities at such a young age.

Following her divorce, her family realized that such a decision was not suitable for someone so young. They recognized the importance of broadening her horizons. Zoya urged viewers not to marry off their young daughters, as it would only lead them to live an inferior life compared to others.

In 2021, Nasir got engaged to fellow vlogger Christian Betzmann, but their relationship ended a few months later. On the work front, she has been consistently impressive in her career since her debut in the drama Hania in 2019. She has delivered notable performances in dramas such as Dobara, Mere Apne, Sirat e Mustaqeem and the highly popular Pakistani drama Mere Humsafar from last year.
