Iqra Aziz is a brilliant Pakistani television actress who has been garnering praise since the time she joined the media industry. Iqra Aziz debuted with Hum TV’s drama serial Mol. She got fame through her iconic hit drama serial Suno Chanda. Her other notable dramas are Jhooti, Ranjha Ranjha Kardi, Raqeeb Se & Qurban.
Lately, fans loved Iqra Aziz in Geo TV’s hit drama serial Mannat Murad. She also fell prey to a controversy after the wedding scene from the drama went viral. Well, she wore the same Faiza Saqlain outfit which Saboor Aly wore on her wedding day. Saboor Aly called Iqra out for wearing her wedding dress.
Recently, Iqra Aziz appeared in The Pick And Drop Show, hosted by Yasir Hussain. In the show, she revealed the reason behind wearing the same dress. Talking about it, she said, “Actually we wanted a traditional dress because it was our director’s demand. We didn’t find any traditional dress even after thorough searching. My director shared this picture with me, after searching, I found out that it was by Faiza Saqlain. We approachd Faiza Saqlain. I requested her to change the shirt because I didn’t want it exactly the same. I kept the duppata and Gharara the same because we could not change it completely. We also kept the jewellery simple and traditional. I designed the whole look. I won’t say that I copied her but I was truly inspired by her look because she was looking so so beautiful and I wanted to look as gorgeous as her. I personally felt that Mannat should look like her. I thought that I should not inform anybody for taking an inspiration, also, it was technically not her dress, I took it from the designer. I didn’t know it will become a big issue, otherwise, I would have asked her because I am a people pleaser”. She further said that she took inspiration from Priyanka Chopra for her wedding dress too.
Talking about meeting with Saboor Aly in future, she said, “I think this should not be an issue at all, we should not even talk about it, we should skip it and move on and I feel bad about it, if she felt sad but I am not apologetic”. Here is the link to the video:
