Saboor Aly isn’t happy with ‘imitation’ of her wedding dress in ‘Mannat Murad’

Sentiments attached

Iqra Aziz and Talha Chahour’s ongoing drama, Mannat Murad, currently airing on Geo TV, featured a wedding scene in one of its episode that has stirred up some drama. The scene stood out because the bride’s outfit was an exact replica of actor Saboor Aly’s real-life wedding dress. In an Instagram story posted, Aly expressed her displeasure over the situation and questioned how she was supposed to feel about this when someone copied her vision and moment, which had memories and sentiments attached to it. Aly’s wedding attire, thoughtfully crafted by designer Faiza Saqlain, was a touching homage to her late mother and closely resembled the outfit she wore on her own wedding day. The traditional dress, characterised by a champagne base and intricate handmade details, garnered a lot of praise on social media when she wore it on her wedding day. Interestingly, the creators of Mannat Murad were not merely inspired by the dress but went to the extent of replicating almost the entirety of its design. This uncanny resemblance has not gone unnoticed, sparking viewer discussions and comparisons. Critics on social media argue that the drama production team’s replication of Aly’s wedding dress raises ethical concerns, as it occurred without obtaining proper permission from her.
