Hareem Farooq, Pakistan’s prominent film and television performer, revealed a childhood event in which she was smacked by her grandpa.
Hareem Farooq told about a childhood recollection when she went missing and was subsequently smacked by her ‘Dada’ on ARY Digital’s ‘Shan e Suhoor’ with host Nida Yasir (grandfather).
“I was around eight years old at the time,” the ‘Parchi’ star remembered. “I left the house and requested that our driver drop me off to my Phuppo’s [Aunt] residence. He declined me immediately away since he was going to eat lunch.”

“I grew insistent and said, if you don’t drop me, I’ll go by myself,” she recounted. “He joked, ‘fine, go by yourself,’ and I went since I knew how to get to her apartment.”
“People in Islamabad at the time would inquire if they saw a child wandering around alone.” Similarly, an uncle said, ‘Where are you going?’ to which I replied, ‘I’m going to my Phuppo’s residence,’ she related. “He went on to ask, ‘How old are you and what grade are you in?’ to which I answered, ‘I’m eight years old and in matric.'”
“After that, I left and was almost there when these two guys stopped me and asked similar questions. I said the same thing to them.
Hareem went on to say that the two males returned her home. “While my grandparents were at home, my dad went to the police station to file a FIR. “My Dada [grandfather] thanked them and then slapped me across the face and cautioned me not to go anywhere alone,” she said.
