The success of Imlie on Star Plus has been surprising and apart from that, the show’s constant rise in the TRP list is all the more surprising. But the fact is that the show is performing amazingly well. The current track shows how Aditiya (Gashmeer Mahajani) is forced to visit Pagdandiya along with Imlie (Sumbul Touqeer Khan) wherein he (Aditiya) tells Imlie that this time she will not return with him to the city and live in Pagdandiya forever.
Touqueer just completed 18 years of age and has already come a long way being raised by her father and how their journey throughout has been. In an interview, Touqueer said, “My father is a dance choreographer in several dance reality shows and he always wanted his kids to do something big in life. He saw that his kids — my sister and I — had a great interest in dancing so he gave this a thought and finally decided to pack his bags and bring us all to Mumbai from Delhi in 2016 where we could try our luck in the entertainment industry. So this acting ka keeda was basically given to me and my sister (who too is an actress) by our dad. My sister and I did a lot of Krishna and Ram Leela plays in Delhi from where we got inclined towards acting.”
She further commented, “My parents got divorced when I was six, though life was different yet not difficult as I loved my dad who took care of me and my sister like a father and mother, both. My father used to wake us up for school, get us ready, prepare our breakfast and then after we used to go to school he would go to work. I was very close to my mother till we were in Delhi, my father didn’t have any problems with that. But after we shifted to Mumbai, I lost touch with my mother.”
She concluded saying, “My dad never remarried as he wasn’t sure how his daughters will be treated by the stepmother. I have tried finding a bride for my dad once but the experience wasn’t a good one. So as much as I would like him to be remarried, I would want him to be ready for it too.”
