Aisha Khan to tie the knot with military officer
Famous Pakistani actor Aisha Khan who a few weeks earlier announced her departure from the Pakistani entertainment industry has made another announcement but this time it’s bound to make fans happy. The Mann Mayal star announced that she’ll be tying the knot soon.
Aisha took to Instagram and posted a picture with her fiancé with the caption, “My fiancé and I are overwhelmed with all the love and prayers that have poured in thus far.”
“I had made my announcement to leave my media career as I now prefer to stay away from the limelight. We got engaged last year and have known each other for several years before. We would request privacy from here on and expect everybody to respect our decision of keeping our wedding a small family affair. Please remember us and our families in your prayers!” she said.
According to media reports, Aisha is tying the knot with Major Uqbah who is the first Pakistan military officer to be appointed as an instructor at the British Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
Major Uqbah Hadeed Malik, who graduated from the British Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2007 and underwent training at the time when Prince William of Wales was his fellow cadet, joined the prestigious faculty of crème de la crème platoon commanders of Sandhurst when Pakistan and British governments agreed to enhance mutual cooperation in defence training and capabilities.
Major Uqbah made headlines in English press when his British cadets rendered a tribute in his honour by singing Pakistan’s national anthem as a surprise for him.
On March 1, in a message posted on Facebook and shared on Twitter, Aisha bid farewell to the entertainment industry. “With great pleasure and humility, I have decided to bid farewell to our wonderful media industry. I am bowing out with immense satisfaction and a lot of pride to move on to the next phase of my life. I have always tried to keep my professional and personal life separate and request everyone to understand please,” the actor had said.
