Hania Aamir, an internet sensation-turned-actress, has gained popularity in Pakistan’s entertainment industry. While not well-known in India, she has become a topic of discussion during the ICC World Cup due to rumors linking her romantically with Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam. Fans have created edits, videos, and even manifestations expressing their desire to see the two together, despite the alleged couple maintaining silence on the matter.
In the past, both Babar and Hania have publicly praised each other, but it has largely been in the context of one public figure admiring another. However, during the World Cup, a fan edit featuring clips of Hania calling Babar ‘cuter than her’ and the cricketer expressing his desire to work in a film with her went viral. This led fans to speculate about a potential romance between the two.
A deepfake video also surfaced, superimposing the faces on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma from the World Cup, further fueling comparisons between Hania and India’s Anushka Sharma. Anushka is married to star batter Virat Kohli, often compared to Babar Azam. Fans began drawing parallels between Hania and Anushka, with some suggesting that “Only Hania can give competition to Anushka.”
Born in Rawalpindi in 1997, Hania Aamir made her debut in the romantic comedy film Jaanan at the age of 19. Her breakthrough came with the critically acclaimed series Titli, and she continued to work in shows like Phir Wohi Mohabbat and Visaal, along with appearing in successful films such as Na Maloom Afraad 2 and Parwaaz Hai Junoon. In 2021, her popularity extended beyond Pakistan through the immensely successful TV show Mere Humsafar, which gained viewership in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Currently, she is seen in the TV show Mujhe Pyaar Hua Tha.
