In an exclusive interview with Kashif Abbasi on ARY News TV, Gulalai said the media reports with regard to her marriage proposal to Imran Khan are untrue. “Can I offer him marriage? He is years older than me. I condemn this allegation and want to know what is the source or proof of this news?” asked Gulalai while talking to Kashif Abbasi.
