Luxurious events, breathtaking skylines, and jaw-dropping fashion encircled Dubai Bling. And Safa Siddiqui, the reality show fashion superstar, is the first person that springs to mind when we talk about fashion. But her debut in this show wasn’t a bed of roses. Kamiya Jani, our Editor-In-Chief met the glam star recently in Dubai for a Sunday Brunch. And guess what? Safa told us how she convinced her businessman husband, Fahad Siddiqui to debut in the show.
Safa Got A Yes After 10 ‘NO’!
Kamiya was curious to understand how she convinced her husband to feature in Dubai Bling. Safa Siddiqui had a tough journey persuading her husband Fahad Siddiqui she quotes. According to Safa, they are a private family and they used to like maintaining it that way. But things changed when Zeina called up to inform her about the show. Safa initially knew how difficult it would be to convince her husband. And that’s exactly what happened.
She broke the news to Fahad and instantly received 10 ‘No’ before she finally convinced him to conclude with a yes. But Fahad was strong-headed about the point of not being involved in the show. And the rest is history!

Kamiya asked Safa Siddiqui how the show happened. Before breaking it to Fahad, Safa Siddiqui did her casting as Zeina requested her to. But as she knew Fahad might not affirm the idea of this reality show, she made sure to shoot in her wardrobe, silently.
And once done, she finally felt a bit confident to break the ice. Later when they started shooting, Safa silently noticed Fahad’s involvement on his own and in fact enjoyed that bit. Our Editor-In-Chief informed the Bling star about people’s opinions of how they told this is not the real Dubai in the show. The Iraqi-British star made a point that made sense. According to her, nobody in the audience would enjoy a show, watching stars doing the daily chores like going grocery shopping or taking out the trash. The show is just like Instagram, you only upload posts where you look your best. Want to know more opinions about Dubai life from Sada Siddiqui?
