An Exclusive Talk:
We got a chance to have an exclusive talk with Shyraa Roy earlier in which she revealed her early struggles she had to face, her childhood difficulties and how she was sexually and mentally abused in her childhood and when the first she decided to pursue a career in show business. She shed more light on her shocking childhood face and told us that she got raped by her own cousin at the age of 12. Her father stopped talking to her after the incident and blamed her for the whole incident. Later on, my father sold me in Heera Mandi to get rid of me but my mom get me back after paying an amount there.
There was a time when we didn’t even have a proper home. We didn’t have money to pay the rent so we were kicked out of our apartment by the landlord. Sometimes we would stay at my Khala’s place and other times; we would stay at some other relative’s place. Since I was a kid, I wanted to become a singer. I wanted to become a writer, wanted to write poetry but in my family art was considered a taboo.
Insight about “Raat”:
Raat is a sexy and exotic number, there’s no story what so ever in the song. It only features me performing in the song and no male model in it. The song covers some exceptional locations and good styling. I rate Raat very high in my journey so far, she said.

What She’s Excited About The Most?
Being a debutant in the Pakistan music industry, it is considered very honored and privileged if you get a chance to work with big names of the industry. We asked her the same question either is she considering to work with a big name or she wanted to create a space on her own and this is what she answered:
“It is being an honor for every rising artist to get to work with someone who has made his name in the industry and is successful.
