While taking the issue to the Facebook, Nida Malik has written, “So, as I found out that I have it in me to become an actress, I started to go out and find work in the field of showbiz. I recently went to an audition for a PTV drama and delivered the dialogues so well that both the directors were greatly impressed and asked me to perform again so rest of the candidates could get an idea”.
She continued, “I was sure I was going to get a part and I did; I received a message from the PR on the same night, congratulating me on getting the role. The message said that I will soon be informed about the shoot dates. I was super excited as I got the part based on my performance”.
The screen shots attached within the post, clearly described the level of conversation, Nida Malik further wrote that the PR person texted her again and told her that even though she has been selected for the part, it will definitely be her’s if she “compromised” with him. However, if she doesn’t, she won’t get the part.
