Her father, Usman Farooqi, a businessman and a bureaucrat, also served as chairman of Pakistan Steel Mills.

Age of Sharmila Farooqi
According to her Twitter profile, she was born on July 23rd but the year is not specified there. It’s not a surprise, most of the Pakistani women, in fact, women around the world tend to hide their age. So, although her Wikipedia profile suggests that her birth year is 1978, that’s probably not true as well. According to the Sindh Assembly website, her year of birth is 1975, which probably is mentioned over Sharmila’s CNIC. So, her real age is unknown but if we consider the birth year as 1975, she turned 42 this year. And, she doesn’t look 42 at all!
(Ms. Faruqi or Mrs. Sheikh, whichever you like to call yourself, if you’re reading this, please do share your secret of not looking 42 & staying that cool)
