Personal background[edit]

Javeria was born and brought up in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan to a middle-class family; her father was a reputable writer while her mother came from a family of traditional herbal pharmacists. While still young, she survived an almost fatal car accident which caused critical injuries. Her body still bears the marks of surgery.[4]

Her interest in acting initially started while she was still in college. Through successful stage performances, she acquired notability and decided to pursue a permanent career in filming. She was previously married to film actor and producer Shamoon Abbasi with whom she has one daughter. Shamoon reportedly left her and married Humaima Abbasi. Speaking of her relationship with her ex-husband, Javeria says:

I forget and do forgive. He’s a good friend and he is the father of my daughter. He’s a gentleman. He taught me everything in life, in showbiz and all. It was Shamoon who took me by the finger and led me through the world of showbiz. I am cool with him.

In her free time, Abbasi enjoys listening to music and spending time with her daughter who she "loves and adores very much."[4]
