Her announcement comes a day ahead of the International Day of the Girl Child, which is marked on October 11 every year.
Earlier this month, Hayat landed into hot water after she uploaded a video of her dance rehearsal for the HUM Awards. She was dressed in a pink and white exercise gear, which many people thought was “vulgar” and “revealing”. However, many of her fans took her side and said they enjoyed watching her dance.
Last month, the actor also made it to the list of The Muslim Vibe’s top five Muslim women in the world.
