A couple of days back, an image of a girl wearing a pink dress, covered by rose petals went viral on social media. A rumour started doing the rounds that it was former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi's child. Soon the rumour went viral. It later emerged that Asmara, Afridi's daughter, had been hospitalised and undergone surgery. The rumours, luckily, died down and it has been confirmed that Asmara is alive and recovering.
