Your favorite Pakistani celebrities are congratulating Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain on their engagement.
Thanks to the internet, it was pretty hard to miss what a lot of people are now calling the highlight of the 18th Lux Style Awards hosted in Karachi. Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain, a couple that had been surrounded with rumors and speculations for months now, got engaged and everyone on the internet seems to be reacting to it.
Recent rumors had led people to believe that they were really just friends, so it was no shock that we were all a little surprised…or not.
When asked in an interview by Waseem Badami whether they were dating or just really good friends, Yasir stated that the latter was the truth, sending the internet into yet another frenzy.
But when Yasir did get down on one knee, people lost their minds and the moment became viral instantaneously.
The actress had a night to remember, winning big for her role in ‘Suno Chanda‘ while also being proposed to by the guy she calls her best friend.
And of course, he too was one of the first to congratulate his future begum.
Along with their fans, their colleagues in the entertainment industry also received the news with pleasant surprise and took to social media to congratulate the new, and now official, couple. Fahad Mustafa, a friend of both, uploaded a post to Instagram saying “Mujhe trophy milee aur tujhe trophy wali“, congratulating his friend on now being engaged to an award-winning actress.
Here’s Fahad’s post.
Asad Siddiqui also posted on the same platform, telling his audience that he was just as shocked as Iqra was.
