International entertainment magazine Eastern Eye wrote: "If there was a contest to find the most beautiful woman in Pakistan, this model-turned-actress would be a front-runner. She has announced her arrival with a number of challenging roles, and if she doesn't become Pakistan's first international film star, we will eat our hats." She has several international film projects in the pipeline.


Her mother, Rukhsar Hayat, was a popular television actress during the 80s,[3] her eldest brother Zeeshan is a singer-composer while her younger sister, Afsheen, is a singer as well.[4] Another brother, Danish Hayat, is an actor and, through him, she's the sister-in-law of Faiza Ashfaq, a model.[5]
