Pakistani TikToker Areeka Haq celebrated her 18th birthday. Yet it wasn’t all well-wishes aimed her way. The TikToker was made fun of for ‘looking older than 18‘.
Lying about your age is just a thing in the entertainment industry, especially since women are ostracized for being ‘too old’ for lead roles. Yet, Areeka Haq isn’t a mainstream artist, so the claims against her don’t really add up.
Netizens really did a number on the Tum Tum music video actress by poking fun at her.
While Areeka Haq may not have as many followers on TikTok as some other Pakistani TikTok stars, she’s widely known due to dabbling in the mainstream entertainment industry like Alizeh Shah. She’s appeared in music videos, photoshoots for clothing lines. Now she is even set to make her drama debut soon.
Maybe that’s why people assumed she might try to downplay her age, cuz it’s just a thing in the biz. But Areeka really was born on October, 20, 2003.
As for making fun of her, better not say anything if you don’t have anything nice to say.
