Rubina Ashraf, a well known actress and producer from Pakistan, plays the lead role in Zee Zindagi’s new show Mera Saaya that went on air last week. Ashraf is a veteran actor in Pakistani with over two decades of experience in the TV industry. She will be seen playing the role of an elderly lady who becomes pregnant at the age of 50. Talking about her role, Ashraf says, “The show revolves around the physical, physchological and emotional transformation and experiences that my character goes through when she discovers that she is pregnant at the age of 50. The manner in which she breaks the news to her children and their reactions is the crux of the story.” Initially, the makers had asked Ashraf to direct the show. But when she refused, they asked her to play the central character.
