LAHORE- Iqra Aziz is the latest celebrity to have been approached to do a whitening cream ad. While many actresses are still, unfortunately, advocating the use of fairness creams, Iqra Aziz refused to become the brand ambassador of an undisclosed fairness cream.

In a heartwarming post on Instagram, her fiance, Yasir Hussain lauded the actor and said, “I love you even more for what you did yesterday.”

“Yeh baat aap sab ko batana is liye zaroori hai kyon k yeh aik behtareen kaam hai . Kal iqra ne aik (whitening cream) ka advertisement karny se mana kar dia jo society mai complex phelany k Bohot sary paisy bhi offer kar rahy thy . Juratmandana aur sahi Qadam uthaya aap ne,"  he said.

Iqra also commented under her bae's appreciation post, saying, "Thank you. What is wrong, is wrong."

At a time when Pakistan is battling colourism and gora complex, Iqra has set an example for fellow celebs who endorse fairness creams. Kudos to the Ranjha Ranjha Kardi starlet for her decision!

In the past Sajal Aly, Mawra Hocane and others have garnered immense criticism for being featured in fairness cream ads.
