Singapore-based model Fehmina Chaudhry had overcome a divorce and was working hard to make it in Bollywood before she was murdered.
“She had a love for life and was following her dreams,” said film production company managing director Sreyashi Sen, who met her through the film and events circuit here early last year.
The body of the 27-year-old pageant winner was found in a ditch in the Pakistani capital Islamabad on Monday.
It is believed that she moved to Singapore with her husband a few years ago.
“She was going through some personal problems but she didn’t let it daunt her,” Sen added.
The catwalk fashion model came from a “very good” family in Karachi and married at the age of 18.
Speaking to the reporters from her apartment in Simei, Chaudhry’s mother-in-law confirmed that Chaudhry and her son had been divorced for about a year and were no longer in contact with each other.
Chaudhry’s former husband has custody of their two children, who have not been informed of their mother’s death.
Chaudhry went missing last Thursday after flying to Pakistan to negotiate deals to buy land.
The land was reportedly being sold by real estate broker Muaz Waqar, who later confessed to her murder during investigations.
She had reportedly given Waqar gold jewellery worth three million Pakistani rupees (RM89,000) to purchase the land but asked for it to be returned when the deal failed. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
