"Say yes otherwise it would be very insulting."
The 2019 Lux Style Awards was one to remember as actor Yasir Hussain proposed to Pakistani television star Iqra Aziz and she said “yes”.
The couple had previously kept quiet about their relationship but they have been public on social media, showing their affection for one another.
They arrived at the awards show in style and walked the red carpet in matching Ali Xeeshan outfits.
Iqra won two awards at the event on July 7, 2019, including the best actress award for her role in Suno Chanda.
She thanked “her love who was preparing for his segment backstage”. However, she was not expecting what he had in mind.
Yasir was on stage doing his segment when he started to walk down the stairs towards his ladylove.
He then took a ring out from his pocket and got down on one knee. The actor asked her:
“Would you marry me?”
He jokingly asked Iqra to respond with a yes in return: “Say yes otherwise it would be very insulting.”
The 21-year-old actress accepted his marriage proposal and the two embraced. Onlookers cheered as the soon-to-be-married couple hugged.
The surprise engagement took the internet by storm as many people sent good wishes to them.
One user wrote:
“OMG, so cute and it’s a yes. Yasir Hussain proposed to Iqra Aziz at the LSA and she said yes.”
However, some social media users criticised them for an over-the-top display of love.
One person commented: “Both of them are an equal level of cringe.”
Despite the mixed results, the couple are not bothered and are happy to be engaged.
