A new edgy charm
Fasha Sandha shares her feelings about her new image and her new TV3 drama projects with
“I ’M not really comfortable with this short haircut,” says Fasha Sandha about her new, edgy boy-cut.
Dressed in a pink ensemble, Fasha looks different than her usual demure, lady-like self.
The haircut makes her look “fierce”, as international supermodel Tyra Banks would say. “Truth is, I love my long tresses. If it wasn’t for the movie Badang ,in which I play Tisha (who has her hair cut off in a scene), I would never cut my hair.
“At first, the role required me to completely shave my hair off. I knew it would create issues, so my management team only agreed to let them cut as much as this,” says the 33-year-old, pointing to her hair.
“That being said, it doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I just feel it’s not really me. When my kids saw my new look, they were like ‘what happened to your hair? Did a bad person cut it?’,” she says, with a laugh.
Fasha reveals that her confidence took a dip after she first cut her hair. But family and friends lifted her spirits by complimenting her, saying how much the new hairdo suited her.
“Fashion magazines and the media also loved my new look, so it gave me confidence. It’s just hair, it’ll grow out eventually, so it’s not the end of the world.”
Fasha says that her new hairdo has opened more doors in terms of job offers.
In addition to being the brand ambassador for several local brands, she will also start filming for two dramas for TV3
—Hanya Tuhan Yang Tahu and Terima Kasih Syawal.
Both are expected to air during Hari Raya.
Despite being super busy, Fasha isn’t complaining. She is enjoying every minute of it because she knows she’s doing it for herself, her children Putra Rayfal Ramli, 4, and Putri Raysha Jemaima, who turns 3 this year, and other members of her family.
Despite being busy, there is one thing that’s keeping her wide awake at night and it’s got nothing to do with her career.
Fasha, who is a single parent, reveals she has a “special friend” and that they’ve been seeing each other for six months. However, she is not ready to reveal who the mystery man is.
“No we are not dating; we don’t even talk about our feelings but he is very close to me.”
So close apparently that he has already been introduced to her kids. What are the qualities Fasha looks for in a man?
“I like someone who doesn’t hover around me. He must be able to accept and understand what I do in terms of my career. For example, I’m constantly surrounded by men who are working in the same industry so he needs to understand that,” she says.
“I’m much more particular now when it comes to choosing a life partner. My past experiences, both good and bad, have made me into the mature woman I am today.
“As for now, there is no talk of marriage. Furthermore, I’m tied up with work. I’m giving myself two years before I settle down. Until then, a lot can happen. If I’m meant to marry this guy sooner than that, I accept it as fate,” she says.
“You can’t force feelings. If it’s meant to happen, it will. And if it does, I will share the news with everyone. What’s the point in hiding something good?
“Even if we love someone so deeply, a marriage might not achieve the happilyever-after that we dream of. You don’t have to be deeply in love to tie the knot. Sometimes people fall in love after they get married.”
In the meantime, Fasha is giving her full concentration to her family. “I was happy before, and I’m even happier now. Everything I do, I do for my kids and my family. They are my forever.
