However, there are some of Hamza’s fans that are not happy with the pairing.
One fan commented: “Mother and son duo.”
Another remarked: “I am a huge fan of Hamza but this couple has the possibility of becoming a flop.
“Although Hamza is older than Iqra but here she looks way older than him. Let’s wait and pray.”
“Only Sehar looks good next to Hamza bhai.”
Many of Hamza Sohail’s fans were also of the opinion that Iqra’s acting is not up to the mark, believing she will bring their idol down.
One user wrote: “Iqra Aziz’s acting is dumb and she has awful expressions in all serials except Mannat Murad. Totally awful dumb acting.”
Another said: “I have never understood Iqra’s acting. She has no expressions at all.”
One commented: “I don’t like her acting.”
As fans and followers eagerly wait for the release date announcement, all are wondering how the fresh on-screen duo will perform.
