Shortly after Iqra Aziz subtly admitted that she was in a relationship with Yasir Hussain, Yasir popped the big question.
The proposal was a dramatic affair, even though Yasir claimed the Suno Chanda artist was ‘just a really good friend’ in an interview just days prior.
Yasir Hussain Pops the Question At Awards Ceremony
Word of Yasir Hussain and Iqra Aziz relationship swept across the country when the two started sharing a lot of social media PDA.
They kept things so hush but finally become official, and that too in front of the whole world live on Lux Style Awards.
Here’s how it all went down:

Yasir Hussain popped the question as he hosted the LSA (as usual) and Iqra Aziz was left at a loss for words (real-life lights, camera and action moment).
Yasir has started off with saying that since the Tabeer starlet has already won two awards from the stage of Lux Style Awards, he would like to present her with a third.
Iqra had looked all flustered, but she might have had an idea of what was following.
Yasir then got on his knees, and presented her with an engagement ring.
The Ranjha Ranjha Kardi actress managed to get out a nod, saying yes! (phew talk about grand romantic gesture). The couple then embraced each other with a hug and Yasir proceeded to plant kisses on Iqra’s head.
Paray Hut Love‘s Shehryar Munawwar and Maya Ali who had been sitting in the same row as Iqra congratulated the couple.
The dramatic proposal had social media cooing with admiration (like when the doves cry).

Simultaneously there was uproar due to Yasir Hussain’s statement on Waseem Badami’s show that he was ‘just really good friends’ with Iqra Aziz.

Islam teaches about luv and affection but I'm sure some clerics would condemn this but (Quran 30:21) would be enough to shut them up.
I hope Muslims would derail themselves from fake clerics and act upon Hadith that teaches to show affection and luv. #IqraAziz#YasirHussain

Some were of the view that such public displays of affection should not happen at all:
#YasirHussain proposed #IqraAziz at #LSA2019!!
Astaghfirullah how could she let him do that i mean seriously even married couples don’t do that in front of everyone even though they have the right to.

At the end of the day, this thing with Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain is officially official. Here’s to hoping this also means the end to Yasir’s gaffes on social media and interviews.
