Former Miss World Australia and PSL T10 League presenter Erin Holland recently posted a heartwarming video on her social media in which she’s seen speaking Urdu with the former Pakistan women’s team captain, Urooj Mumtaz.
Taking to Twitter, the television host shared a glimpse of her Urdu language skills on Wednesday, which caught the attention of many viewers. Dressed in a pastel-coloured Shalwar Kameez in the video, Holland is seen counting down to 10 in Urdu.
“Hi guys, it’s Urdu lessons 101 with Urooj, my local language teacher,” she said before reciting the numbers up to 10 with flawless pronunciation. Later, Mumtaz further tested her by asking what she would say if it started raining. “See, it’s raining right now (Dekho baarish ho rahi hai),” immediately replied Holland while making gestures of raindrops with her hands.
As the clip circulated online, Twitterati rushed to the comment section to appreciate Holland’s attempt at speaking Urdu. “This is so cute,” commented a user.
