Actress Ainy Jaffri has been MIA from the limelight for quite some time now, four years to be precise. In a recent Instagram post, the Tajdeed e Wafa actress announced her comeback in the show titled Mandi.
“It’s been a minute. Extremely humbled and excited to be part of this project, joining a supremely talented cast. After a 4-year break, to spend time with my new son and family; I am simultaneously nervous and also thrilled to be entering the acting space again,” she wrote in the caption.
Jaffri was focused on her family and personal life during this break, but she shared how acting has always been her calling and she cannot fully abandon the profession.
“The break has taught me to be more patient and the very valuable lesson that being a woman and a mother means that while you can’t have it all at the same time, you can have it, in turns, when the time is right,” she further added.

The actress has always been vocal about her love for acting, as she once shared with Express Tribune as well: “Acting was always something I really wanted to do but didn’t push too hard for it as there was a lot of resistance. My parents were very weary of it. They weren’t aware of how professional everything is in the industry until my aunt, Azra Mohyuddin, joined it,” she said.
More details on her new project Mandi are still on a hush, but the project will also star Saba Qamar, Mikaal Zulfiqar and Shayan Khan.
