REVEALED: Yasir’s proposal to Iqra was planned by Frieha Altaf
We finally know now that Yasir Hussain’s proposal to actress Iqra Aziz at the Lux Style Awards 2019 was all planned and that too by designer-turned-actor Frieha Altaf.
Yasir and Iqra stole the show at the Lux Style Awards 2019 when the comedian went down on one knee and proposed to Iqra. Not only that, he smothered her with kisses. The act was criticised on social media and Yasir was taken to task for kissing Iqra on the cheek publicly.
Now, it has come to light that designer Frieha Altaf was behind the scripted proposal. The designer was speaking on the YouTube show Momina’s Mixed Plate where she said that she wanted to bring the western concept of public proposals to Pakistan.
“It was all for the audience. Every word was planned,” she said. “I wanted to bring this western concept of public proposals to Pakistan,” she added.
Frieha said that Yasir even went off script when he proposed to Iqra and said a few words which were not planned.
“Yasir even went off the script and added few lines of his own in the proposal because he has a verbal diarrhea problem,” she said.
Frieha revealed that Yasir had confided in her that he and Iqra were about to get married in December. It was then that Frieha thought of a public proposal at the LSA 2019.
She said that it was now common for celebrities to express their love. She cited the examples of Sajal Aly, Ahad Raza Mir and other celebrities who expressed their love in front of the world.
