In 2005, Nabila Karim was completing his HSC from Viquarunnisa Nun College (English Version). One day she went to Meena Bazar with his father to buy shampoo. Sunsilk was running a special campaign for its customers that timer and the offer was that, 60 winner who will fill the special coupon will get chance to be a part of famous hair stylist Javed Habib’s latest campaign. So, Nabila bought a shampoo and just simply filled the coupon but never though that she will really be a part of those winners. But when fate has plans for you, nobody can resist that and the same thing happened to Nabila too. One day she got a call from Asiatic ad agency and she was told that “Welcome to the campaign of Javed Habib”. Thus very surprisingly she got chance in that campaign and her dream journey began. Though Nabila step in the modeling career by hobby but her hobby has now taken her to the top of fame. Just after the telecast of her first advertise with Sunsilk, she immediately gained widespread popularity and she did not need to look back at all.
