Iqra Aziz is also known for her outspoken personality. Iqra Aziz wanted to be part of the entertainment industry from her teenage years. She managed to give an audition for a commercial with the help of her elder sister and was instantly picked up by Citrus Talent.

Iqra Aziz is 22 years old. Iqra Aziz’s real age became a mystery when she posted her picture after she got the HUM Style Award. The comments under this picture about Iqra Aziz’s real age stirred an unnecessary controversy that took the limelight away from her actual achievement. People started questioning what Iqra Aziz’s real age was and there were many people who said that Iqra Aziz’s real age was a mystery since she always lied about her age. People have been quite inquisitive about Iqra’s real age since then, even more than her career or anything else she has done so far.
While talking to Momin Munshi on his show One Take, the first thing Iqra did was to clear this confusion once and for all. She made it quite clear that her real age was 20 years in 2018. Iqra Aziz also cleared the confusion about her birthday, she said that her birthday on Wikipedia was wrong and that her birthday was 24th November 1997. She said that on Wikipedia her birth year is 1993- 1994 which is absolutely wrong.
At the same time she said that Iqra Aziz also said that she was not going to show anyone who doubted her, her NIC, or her passport because such people are not going to get convinced any way! Iqra said that people who are going to doubt her, will say that she paid someone to change the year on her NIC and passport in order to fool them, therefore she thought there was no point proving things to such people. She also said that the actors have a life, they don’t have enough time to worry about these things since they don’t matter.
Iqra Aziz’s age is not the only thing which has been the subject of discussion on public forum both by herself and others. Her height has been something that has also been talked about and even mocked by many. Iqra Aziz is only 4 feet 7 inches tall. Even though she does not fit the ‘general criteria’ set for a model and actress in our industry, she has managed to make it to the top.
Iqra Aziz talked about her height and how it impacted her throughout life after she won her first award. When Saba Qamar was going to give her the award she made a comment which was the reason why Iqra Aziz decided to talk about her height. A general comment which most people did not even notice, made Iqra talk about the mocking she had faced because of her short height. She also had a hidden message for Saba Qamar in this post.
Through this post, Iqra Aziz asked the girls to stay positive about their body image irrespective of certain ‘shortcomings’ which were against the beauty standards set by the society.
