Momina Mustehsan has earlier opened up about her broken engagement with U.S banker Ali Naqvi a number of times! However, just recently in an interview with Khaleej Times the leading lady revealed quite at length the details of what actually went down.
“I got engaged because both the families wanted it. My fiance and I didn’t even know each other well around that time.”
Momina got engaged to Ali only two and a half weeks after they met for the very first time.
“We were open to the idea of knowing each other better. That’s why we did not want the news of the engagement to reach out to the public.”
Momina added that after a picture of her from the engagement ceremony leaked out on social media, news channels began to air it almost immediately and that is why she had to release an official statement on her betrothal.
“I had to come out and give an official statement because there had been a lot of fake accounts that suggested that it was a still from a TVC shoot!”
But she reveals that it was really the media attention after the break-up that was hard to tackle and survive through.
“It was as if they were rubbing it in my face.”
However, the diva remained strong and rose to more power and fame, becoming an inspiration for many women all over.
“The good thing that came out of this was that a lot of young girls, who had gone through a similar setback, wrote to me, admiring the way I had conducted myself during this time.”
From trolls to rumors and name-calling to serious backlash, we can surely say that the Coke Studio sensation has been through a lot. We want to pay a huge amount of respect to the ‘Afreen Afreen’ beauty for finally sharing the real story without a second of a flinch to the world.
Keep shining Momina!
