But I have a really good support system. I think my strongest support system is my sister. She also became an assistant director on the show. So, it worked out in a way where I have my outlets where I can vent my anger.”

“In my personal life, I am secure enough today to come home to my husband and put aside whatever I have done at work. But I am not the person who will constantly put so much pressure on it. Yes, I want to prove myself; But today I am also realistic in that sense. We live in a world of 1.7 billion people, including India (this is the figure that Sharmin got wrong during the chat. According to last year's UN data, India's population is about 1.4 billion). At the end of the day, that's how many people's opinions you're going to shape or control,” he said.

Set in the red-light district of Lahore during pre-partition India, Hiramandi explores the complex power dynamics between courtiers, nawabs and British officials. This show is streaming on Netflix.
