Aisha Omar shared her apprehensions about becoming a mother, considering her difficult childhood, and her longstanding wish to adopt a child after marriage.

Regarding the #MeToo movement, Aisha Omar stated that she supports the initiative because she, too, has been a victim of sexual harassment from an early age.

She expressed her love for Pakistan but noted that the current circumstances make it difficult to continue living here.
