Following Pakistan’s win over Scotland on Sunday in the ICC tournament, Ayesha Omar shared photos from a shoot on her Instagram, which she shared after being featured in a local magazine along with Shoaib Malik last month.
Looking fiery in an orange number next to Malik, who, like the singer Shehzad Roy, does not seem to age at all, Omar captioned the first photo, “Never have I ever,” and wrote “Beat it,” under the second. Meanwhile, the all-rounder could be seen sporting a button-down in a pool, striking intimate poses with Omar for the camera.
Fans of both public figures have expressed their confusion in terms of how they decided to pair up for such a shoot with Sania Mirza, who is currently the nation’s favorite bhabi, being okay with it. Nonetheless, Omar assured one of them that a mere photoshoot featuring two people of the opposite sex does not hint at an affair.
When a user asked, “Kya ap dono ka shaadi ka irada hai [Are you two planning on getting married?]” The actor silenced troll inquiring about her ‘marriage plans’ with the cricketer.
“Not at all.” She added, “He is married and is very happy with his wife. I respect both Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza a lot.” Omar also claimed that she and Malik are nothing but each other’s well-wishers.
“Shoaib and I are good friends and each other’s well-wishers. People have such relations in this world too,” the actor asserted.
Have a look at their photoshoot
Omar had posted these photos with Malik after he won Man of the Match against Scotland in Sunday’s game. Malik has been trending on social media for his brilliant performance ever since, especially because he dethroned India’s KL Rahul by smashing a staggering 54 off 18 balls, setting a new record for the fastest 50 of the tournament.
Speaking to the media following the team’s emphatic victory in the last pool match against Scotland, Babar Azam also praised Malik. “This time around, Shoaib Malik has come to the party, playing a sensational knock to give Pakistan’s total a real boost against Scotland,” he said.
On the other hand, Omar recently celebrated eleven years of her popular sitcom Bulbulay. She attended the Filmfare Middle East Achievers Night in Dubai as well.
Omar certainly knows how to shut down trolls. Previously, in addressing an unkind comment on social media directed at her, and other star Pakistani women, Omar eloquently schooled an age-shaming troll.
