    She is one of the most disliked Pakistani actresses in her country because she is a rude rich snob. During her VJ stint she used to be very rude to the fans and callers and always had attitude problem. Even URWA of yeh shaadi nahi oh sakti is like that. Even though she is talented her personality is rely crap. ZGH would have been a much huge hit if she wasn’t in it. Even the producers of the show got worried once it aired that it was not getting as high trp as expected. Fans just dint like her. I hope she changes her personality as Being a uk born she looks down on everyone she has that complex typical to an expat Pakistani.

      no way URWA Loves her fans – Urwa hamari hamesha baat sunti hai and Urwa ne bohot dafa apne show mein apne FANS ka name liya hai ! Urwa says ke mein apne fans ke begair kuch nahi – idk about sanam but urwa bohot sweet hai urwa thori si rude dhikhne mein lagti hai but woh hai bohot achi

      being straigtforward doesn’t mean rude & in our teenage days we all are like that to live life on our own terms but now mature Sanam Saeed is reserved not rude … her fans love her… my cousin met her recently she said ‘about sanam ”Sanam is tall ,pretty very soberly dressed i found her
      humble & little shy & i was surprised when she told me that
      Sanam Saeed don’t take her stardom/ celebrity hood too seriously she
      mingle with people nicely ” … Sanam Saeed don’t have a attitude problem she had a strong personality which people can’t handle
      and coming back to ZGH … Kashaf by Sanam is one one of THE best female performances in recent years in my honest opinion ZGH was hit because Sanam Saeed was in it as Kashaf Murtaza Sanam Saeed ‘ s first role as a leading actor was Kashaf. She was always the supporting actor in all of her shows prior to this…and
      never received her due.Sanam Saeed was a HUGE factor in ZGH. Even Fawad didn’t have as
      much of screen space as Kashaf. At times, Fawad came across as the
      supporting actor meanwhile Saeed seemed to be more of the lead. Yes,
      Fawad’s starpower helped ZGH..but portraying Kashaf was a different
      thing altogether and there Sanam Saeed deserves a lot of credit. I
      truthfully feeI & don’t see
      anyone who could’ve pulled off a Kashaf…it’s only Sanam Saeed and that says everything.

      • priya sharma

        xactly roshini khan ‘m agree wid u…love you sanam nd i love you voice quality nd kashaf’s role was very well suited you :*

    • Hammad

      Are you a joke? Why are you hating on somebody for no reason? Did she steal your goats? Pathetic loser!!

  • Fatma

    One more fact you don’t know about sanam saeed, she was not acting in the drama, she actually is unfriendly and sarod and rude in real life, producers chose her for the role because no one is more famous for being a chorail as much as she is in fact she was very natural on screen as she was just being herself :p

    • Roshini Khan

      what a joke ROFL .. the director Sultana Siddique her self said with a conversation with Paper Magzine writer that ”I wish more women in Pakistan were like Sanam Saeed.” & recently during a talk show ToniteWithHSY when Sanam Saeed picture was shown Fawad immediately said Love & my cousin met both Fawad & Sanam …she met Fawad during Khubsoorat promotion she ask about Sanam Saeed Fawad Khan replied ” she’s
      reserved just like him, but excellent at what she does & Fawad also said sanam is one of her favorite co-stars including Mahira Khan & Sonum Kapoor but he enjoyed working the most with Sanam Saeed…. my cousin met Sanam Saeed too recently at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital during Breast Cancer Awareness Programme.
      my cousin said Sanam is tall ,pretty very soberly dressed i found her
      humble & little shy & i was surprised when she told me that
      Sanam Saeed don’t take her stardom/ celebrity hood too seriously she
      mingle with people nicely ….. so stop spreading nonsense rumors LOL
      & get a life girl & growup ..
