Aamna Sharif married her distributor-turned-producer boyfriend Amit Kapoor in 2013 after a year of dating. Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai were also present at the wedding. A source had revealed to mid-day, "Aamna has kept a low-profile of late, avoiding the social circuit. Their romance was a well-kept secret. But she has known Amit for a while now. They are serious about each other."
Amit Kapoor is producer Shabnam Kapoor's son. Aamna was frequently linked with Kahiin Toh Hoga co-star Rajeev Khandelwal at that time. Aamna and Amit welcomed their baby boy Arain in 2015.

How beautiful is this picture of Aamna with her cutie pie! The actress had shared the child's photo on Instagram and announced his name to the world saying, "His every wish is our command... My little Master Arain."
Aamna Sharif was on an extended hiatus from television until now. She said in a chat with IANS, "I would love to be attached to television. It's just that it requires a lot of time; so I want something that is good and suitable. TV was the one that gave me recognition and I would definitely take up if something interesting comes my way (sic)."
After her 2013 show Ek Thhi Naayika, Aamna will now be seen as the iconic Komolika in Ekta Kapoor's Kasauti Zindagi Kay 2. It will be interesting to see how Aamna handles the role of an antagonist after being loved for her role as Kashish in Kahiin Toh Hoga.
Also, it's not a newcomer that we will be seeing on the telly either. Aamna is a seasoned actress now and has transformed herself both personally and professionally. Just look at this recent picture of her! Doesn't she look absolutely fit and fabulous?
Aamna Sharif has won a few awards for her TV roles. She has won Best Fresh New Face (Female) and Style Icon of the Year (Female) for Kahiin Toh Hoga, and Favorite Comeback on Television for Hongey Judaa Na Hum.
Aamna Sharif sure has transformed from the adorable girl-next-door to a fabulous diva who's not afraid to get out of her comfort zone. And her soon-to-begin stint as Komolika proves that. She recently said in an interview, "Of course, as an actor, you want to play all shades. It's really exciting when you come across something that can surprise your audiences. It's always exciting to expect the unexpected."
And did she have any qualms taking up a negative role? Aamna shared, "I had briefly played a grey character in Ek Villain and when Komolika was offered I felt it was a good opportunity to flesh out that aspect of an actor too. And on a lighter note, my first thought was as Kashish I've cried enough, it's high time I make others cry. I would really hope that I do an entertaining portrayal and that the audiences accept it in a similar emotion."
"It's not easy to recreate such an iconic role. Both Urvashi Dholakia and Hina Khan have portrayed it so beautifully that I can't take this role for granted..."
"They made the character so popular that the audience will look up to me with more expectations, and I don't want to let them down. There is a lot of pressure on my shoulders. I am trying my level best to do justice to the role," Aamna told IANS.
Be that as it may, we're sure Aamna Sharif will be great as Komolika as well and we wish her the best for her new role!
