In a candid conversation with Urdu News, actress Fiza Ali spoke about the trials and tribulations of being a single parent. She emphasized the significance of standing on her own two feet and providing a secure future for her daughter, and ardently advocated for independence and education for her, stressing the need to prioritize building a fulfilling life before contemplating marriage.
Reflecting on her personal experiences, Ali shared, “The reason I can give my daughter a comfortable life today is that I have worked hard and stood on my own feet. I am not waiting for someone else to provide for us.” She also spoke about the importance of compatibility and mutual understanding in relationships, stressing the need for women to have their voices heard.
The actress also shared how she firmly believes that if a woman’s needs are not met, she should not hesitate to end a relationship. She highlighted the significance of mutual consent and stressed the negative impact of a broken marriage on children. “When a woman feels that she is not being heard, she feels that the relationship must come to an end to prevent any further damage. The ones who suffer the most in a sour relationship are the children,” Ali said.
Fiza also shared her personal experience in her past relationship and her insights on what either make or break a relationship. She revealed that although she and her partner were great friends, he never saw her as a wife. “While we were great friends, he never saw me as his wife. I would come back tired from shoots and I didn’t have anyone to watch TV with, no one to feed my cooked meals to,” she said. She pointed out that when a relationship fails, it’s not necessarily due to numerous flaws in the other person, but rather a single habit that doesn’t align with one’s preferences.
However, the actor shared that a failed relationship should not be viewed as the end of the road. Instead, she advised people to look beyond the closed door and search for an open window. She encouraged individuals to embrace new experiences and happiness that may come their way. “There is always a window beyond that door. Therefore, leave the closed door and look at that window. Experience the kind of wind that blows from that window and the happiness you receive. Perhaps, the next time around, a better person enters your life,” she added.
When asked if she had any plans to remarry, Ali stated that she would only marry someone who not only respected her but her daughter as well and did not present an obstacle in the way of her career. “I will get married when I find someone who suits me and accepts my daughter Faral and allows me to work,” she said.
