One of the first male Vjs of Pakistan, an amazing actor and host- Dino Ali chats with us about all things fun!
Your favorite pastime during the lock down phase?
Catching up on books and listening to a lot of music because I feel I missed out on a lot of good music. I think that were the most fun things that I could do during the lockdown.
The most precious relationship that you have experienced during tough times?
My mother and my sisters. No relationship is more precious than your family.
With whom you share your all kinds of secrets comfortably?
My sisters. My sisters know everything about me and I think that is the most beautiful bond that we have.
The worst part of your job is?
There is no worst part; there is nothing bad about what I do Alhumdulilah. But there is one thing that really gets to me is trolling. I am completely, completely against of online bullying and people who send horrible messages just because they want to be negative. Online bullying is a terrible thing.
Weirdest comment you have ever had?
NO weird comment but there’s something funny that people think that I look like Petyr Baelish aka Little Finger, who is a character from Game of Thrones!
The hardest punishment ever received?
Nothing recent but when I was younger my mom was strict on me because I was a trouble maker.
One celebrity you would like to accompany you to the space in a rocket?

Good childhood memory in a phrase or sentence.
Alhumdulilah I had a beautiful childhood and I can’t thank my parents enough.
Your strangest talent?
People haven’t seen me cooking so I think they would find it strange that I cook good food.
Facetime or Skype?
Facetime is great.
One thing you always do on the sets, which you hate but still love to do?
Wait- I am very impatient. Waiting around for shots or to start the shoot. It is always the time when I say ‘OoooooooooHHHHHHHHHH!’ I just want the job to get done!
