Veteran actress Javeria Abbasi has always been rather vocal about her marriage to and divorce from Shamoon Abbasi. Lately, in an appearance at a local talk show, she shed light on other aspects of her life, especially how Shamoon is also her stepbrother.
Javeria and Nida Yasir pointed out and explained the reality of Pakistan’s entertainment industry through the latter’s show Good Morning. The actor began by talking about her career trajectory. “I went to Express Talent as an audience member,” she revealed. “I always wanted to go backstage and meet the artists.”
“Nayla Jaffrey saw me there when I went to ask her for an autograph. She asked me to audition instead,” Javeria added. “After that, I worked with your [Nida Yasir’s] father for the first time, got my first award for the same PTV drama.”
Nida then inquired whether she was married by then, to which Javeria said she had just gotten engaged to Shamoon.
“Javeria’s mother and Shamoon’s father got married. Javeria and Shamoon were step-siblings,” Nida explained as the Taana Baana star nodded. “People get really confused with this story,” Javeria commented, adding, “So I don’t want to create any confusion. The rest of our siblings were from our mother and father. That’s why people get really confused whether Anoushey Abbasi is my sister or Shamoon’s. She’s both of our sister.”

“The idea was to bring the whole family together. We would live together, share a house, so it was a good idea and it worked,” said Javeria. The actor recalled she had gone to her maternal uncle’s house so she can get married. “I had to come back to the same house so rukhsati happened from my mamoo’s,” Javeria remarked. The couple, who was married for 10 years, co-parent a daughter Anzala.
Nida then pointed out how Javeria probably did not go through the ‘typical saas drama’ since her mother-in-law was her birth mother. “Oh no, I had it worst!” the actor replied. “My mother was on a mission to prove how her daughter was the best. Apart from working 12 hours a day, I would do the rest of the chores as well.”
The duo tied the knot when they were quite young. Javeria was 17 while Shamoon was 22. Talking about her divorce, she shared how relationships all come down to chemistry.
