Islamabad (Pakdestiny) Pakistani supermodel Ayyan, who was arrested for attempting to carry US $500,000 to Dubai, made such a huge money overnight by ‘spending time’ with Arab Sheikhs and Pakistani elites.
This question will remain unanswered since she was transporting over Rs5 crore illegally to Dubai.
She made 15 tours of Dubai in recent times. “It appears the super model made huge sum of money over night by spending time with filthy rich of the country and some Arab Sheikhs. This is not possible that by doing modelling she could make crores in a few years and adopt illegal court to shift the money,” sources in the showbiz told Pak Destiny.
The sources further said Rs5 crore is not a small money. “Infact she rushed to Dubai to buy some property from the money she made by spending time with her clients. Its a big shame that even the super models are involved in flesh business,” they said. She will be interrogated for her other money she made from this business.
The amount was hidden in her luggage.
Ayyan, 21, was booked to travel on a flight to Dubai Saturday morning.
Customs officials recovered US $500,000 from her luggage at Islamabad airport before she could board the plane.
The attempt falls under money laundering as customs regulations do not permit travelling with such a large, undeclared amount.
Customs authorities registered a case of money laundering against her and investigation into the incident has started.
Ayyan will be held at Adiala jail pending investigation and a bail plea.
Super model Ayyan has been one of the most widely recognised faces in Pakistan’s modelling industry, although in recent years her career has shifted towards producing music.
At the Lux Style Awards (LSA) in 2011 she was one of the nominees for Best Model (Female) along with Rabia Butt, Mehreen Syed, Nooray Bhatti and Cybil Chowdhry. She was nominated a number of times in future LSAs as well.
Ayyan also did a campaign for Sunsilk which famously featured her in a hijab.
In 2014 Ayyan tried her hand at singing, releasing a song titled ‘You and I.’ The song wasn’t exactly a hit, and the follow-up album was similarly forgettable.
