Amna Ilyas: “I would choose a tall man for myself instead of rich” [VIDEO]
It should be noted that this isn't the first time the model has taken a jab at body positivity.
The latest episode of The Mazedaar Show, hosted by Faizan Sheikh and Aadi Adeal Amjad, featured the model-turned-actress Amna Ilyas as a guest. The celebrity shared information about her personal life, professional life, interests, and opinions on the show.
The highlight of the evening was the ‘This or That’ segment of the show. During the segment, the show hosts asked Amna Ilyas:
What do you do when you see a girl of short height? Do you laugh at them or tell them that they can get taller?
To this, Amna Ilyas replied:
I laugh at them, I am not a racist, but I laugh. I would choose a tall man for myself who is poor rather than preferring a man who is rich but short, any day.

It should be noted that this isn’t the first time the model has taken a jab at body positivity. Earlier, Amna Ilyas and Sadaf Kanwal appeared on the HSY show where they body-shamed senior model Aaminah Haq.
When asked about former Pakistani supermodel Aaminah Haq, Amna Ilyas pointed out how she had appallingly gained weight. HSY was left shocked as the two models high-fived over this comment.
Aaminah Haq took to social media and clapped back. She posted:
A few of you have tagged me in something a particular model/actress said about me. Truth be told, if body shaming me brought some tiny shred of joy in her life, then you’re welcome! Unhappy people tend to gravitate towards hate instead of kindness and compassion.
On the work front, Amna Ilyas is currently working for the feature film Mastani. The model is playing a lead role in the movie opposite Affan Waheed.
