The Daily Times quoted the actress, speaking over phone from Dubai, that only her mother supported her decision. Denying the rumours that she was having an affair with a Dubai-based guy whom she wants to marry, she reportedly said that she shifted to Dubai only to act in a teleplay.

"I am here only for shooting. In case my father does not agree with me, I won't stay with my parents in Pakistan," she told the paper.

Meanwhile, said the paper, Meera's father Sarwar said that he had given Meera a year to complete all her projects and after that she would definitely be married off. "There is a family in Lahore with whom Meera's marriage talks are in progress and hopefully Meera will agree to marry the guy I have chosen for her," he added.
