‘Make mistakes and take chances’: Hania Aamir wants artists to take time out for themselves and live a free life
A lot goes on in the lives of stars that we see on the TV or big screens. Actor Hania Aamir finds it sad that an artist is often recognised as an entertainer first instead of a human and how that becomes a pattern for them to look at themselves as entertainers rather than “fragile sensitive human beings”.
On Friday, Aamir shared a clip of herself with a note for all artists. She wrote, “I see artists worried about their work, their career, their persona, their beauty and barely ever about their mind, their heart, their peace. Take some time out for yourself. Make mistakes and take chances and realise you’re only human.”
Talking more about the video, she said that she took a trip to the beach on an evening knowing it would get dark by the time she reaches but found “pure bliss” and felt alive.
Sharing her experience from this short journey, Aamir had one advice for all artists — “Star gazing, listening to your favourite songs, away from judgy eyes, away from the pressures of constantly being perfect. Make some decisions for your soul. Talk to yourself. Ask yourself if you feel good. Take care of the artist in you. The artist who knows creativity and not the facade of creativity.”
For her, it’s important to “separate yourself from the pressures of matching the worldly and cultural standards,” listen to yourself, your heart and body because that will bring you patience, happiness and contentment.
Aamir can be seen in TV show Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha alongside Wahaj Ali and Zaviyar Naumaan with whom she shares the TV screen for the second time as the pair was last seen in Sang-e-Mah this year.
