Asim Azhar is being appreciated for doing something different and having the beloved Areeka Haq for his new project
Maybe, only maybe if we can shed the bigotry towards TikTok, we can actually realize that Areeka Haq is a major celebrity as well.
So happy to see that people from tiktok are coming up to mainstream media too.
Asim Azhar took a great step ahead of everyone else thinking tiktok is small.
Good going bro. https://t.co/LEyqDIMUYP

While speaking to MangoBaaz about working with Areeka on the project, Asim said that he was surprised by her professionalism
We asked Asim what it was like working with a TikTok star and how Areeka Haq is as a costar. Asim replied ”It was as nice as working with any other professional or costar. I think Areeka is an extremely talented girl and the world is yet to see her full potential. I must emphasize that she was very professional, and that was pleasantly surprising.”
Asim said that they had been working consecutively for two days straight, so all the fun they had was during the work. So, the whole experience was super fun.
On the question about when the audience can actually feast on the project, Asim said that the next few days would be full of surprises and BIG announcements. So, keep an eye out, everybody!
