Sajal Aly, Ahad Raza Mir: A History of Their Relationship
Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir first sparked dating rumours when they were seen sharing screen space together in Yakeen ka Safar
Ever since films and TV show are being consumed by audiences, there always tend to be a few favourites. These favourites could range from favourite actors, actresses, villains, to even favourite on-screen pairs. And more often than not, fans start rooting for the on-screen couple to somehow, get romantically involved with each other in real life too. Now as much as we hate or dislike to admit it, all of us Bollywood buffs at some point wanted Bollywood’s Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol to be the ‘it’ couple because they starred in various hit films together. However, the two are nothing more than really good friends. Likewise, Pakistani audiences also have a favourite and it’s none other than Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir.
Initial rumours of their romance began while hit TV serial Yakeen Ka Safar was airing on screens. Fans loved Sajal and Ahad as Zubia and Asfandyar, and secretly hoped for them to become a real life couple as well. During that time, the two were also spotted together at several celebrity weddings. But hey, that’s no big deal! All stars bump into each other at such events. But it was only a few weeks later that Sajal and Ahad walked the ramp together for a fashion show and that’s when fans went overboard, hoping that the two are a real-life couple. Social media erupted with photos of the two as the audience couldn’t stop gushing over how made for each other they looked on the ramp. And that’s probably where it all began.
During interviews or other TV appearances, fans as well and interviewers would ask them if they were dating the other. Sajal and Ahad, however, decided to stay mum on the subject and only said that they were really good friends and respected each other a lot. After Yakeen ka Safar, Sajal and Ahad also won the Best On-Screen Couple trophy at the 2018 awards which made the fans even more suspicious. Sajal Aly’s sister, Saboor Aly even shared a heartfelt post on Instagram congratulating the two on their win, however, she did not confirm their relationship either. She wrote, “This is just not an adorable picture for me; it is a reminder for me as to how two people can achieve greatness together. From the moment Sajal started working with Ahad in their first project I knew that these two will create a great chemistry on screen as Ahad was as hardworking as my sister and these awards are a proof of that.”
Soon after news of their second TV serial started circulating as well. Sajal and Ahad starred in another hit show called Aangan, which was loved by fans all across the world. But even while that show was airing, neither Sajal nor Ahad confirmed that a romance was brewing. Needless to say, fans still kept hoping for some sort of confirmation by stalking them on social media and making fan art with the two. You know how it goes. In 2018, Ahad also made his Coke Studio debut. He sang a remixed version of Koko Korina, which was not well received by audiences. Social media users were quick to bash him for the song which is when Sajal rushed in to defend him. Aww! Isn’t that sweet now?
Later, they did a bridal cover shoot with one of Pakistan’s magazine that again made fans go gaga over the two. Sajal was also spotted spending some time in Canada with Ahad’s family after news of Ahad performing in a Shakespeare play in Toronto broke online. So don’t tell us there wasn’t any family bonding going on there! In June 2019, during Eid, Sajal and Ahad finally made their relationship public and announced to the world that they had just gotten engaged. Woot woot! Both of them took to Instagram to share the news and wrote, “Here's to new beginnings. Today we are happy to announce that with the blessings of our families we are officially engaged. Our special day will be even more special with the love and prayers of our family, friends and fans. Ahad & Sajal.” Now isn’t that the cutest?
They are now appearing in yet another TV show together called Yeh Dil Mera and fans seem to be enjoying it more than ever, since the two are now officially engaged. The two also cannot seem to be stop showing love to each other. Sajal isn’t one to shy away from sharing snippets of her life with the Mirs as well. Apart from posting photos with Ahad, she also shares some with his brother, her to-be-brother-in-law, Adnan Raza Mir. Sajal also shares photos with Ahad’s mother as well. Sharing a picture with Ahad’s mother a few days ago, Sajal wrote, “Real happiness is finding a mother-in-law who looks at you the way my mama looks at me.” Now isn’t that sweet!
Sajal and Ahad were recently spotted together at Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain’s wedding. Yesterday, as Sajal celebrated her birthday, Ahad even took to Instagram to share an adorable photo of the two of them. He wrote, “Happy Birthday Sajal. You're my favorite today, tomorrow and forever.” The two have a few more projects lined up together for the future, which means we’ll be getting to see them grace the screen again after Yeh Dil Mera. However, we would now also like to see them finally tie the knot and take on the marriage plunge.
