Amna Ilyas, Dawar Mehmood hint at budding romance

Popular actor Amna Ilyas, who recently shunned rumours of her and director Dawar Mehmood’s alleged wedding, has now hinted at a budding romance. 

The actor recently uploaded a video featuring her and Mehmood with the latter starting off with a foul gesture. “To all the people spreading rumours, take this from me!” he said, with Ilyas adding, “The thing is very simple, I don’t have any boyfriend but he has a lot of girlfriends. The poor man is receiving death threats from all over Pakistan. So kindly stop spreading rumours.” 

But just yesterday, Ilyas uploaded a quintessential autumn-esque picture on her Instagram with the caption, “Falling in love.” Mehmood went on to comment on the post saying, “Already in love,” to which Ilyas responded with a heart emoji.

A week ago, Dawar had even uploaded a picture with the model, showing the two cut her birthday cake together. “Comic timing, expressions, emotions, she nails it to the core! One of the finest actors I’ve worked with by far,” he captioned the post. Dawar then added sarcastically (we hope), “But agar shakal bhi utnee hee achee ho toh kya baat hai (if only your face was as great as your talents).”

But keeping all rumours of an alleged affair aside, a few publications had earlier reported that Ilyas and Mehmood had in fact, tied the knot. “Model, actor Amna Ilyas and director Dawar Mehmood of Kopykats Production have reportedly tied the knot in a simple ceremony on Saturday,” read one of the most circulated news reports.

The report had further alluded to their reported marriage as being something Ilyas had been hinting at since May.
