Pakistani actor and singer Ali Zafar is a multi-talented guy who can dance, sing and play various instruments. Ali is a married man and has a beautiful love story to narrate.
Earlier, Ali worked as a sketch-artist in the lobby of a hotel to earn daily wages. And, luckily, he also met his wife, Ayesha there. Ali once said: “Oct 2000 this girl came to get her portrait made from me at a hotel lobby where I used to sit to draw. Guess who is she now?”
When Ali First Met Ayesha’s Father
Ali said: “I was very lucky that my father-in-law was a big fan of music and movies. Actually, his dad used to make movies. Jab unse mila and he found out that I can sing, he was overjoyed. In fact, kya hua ki they didn’t know that we were dating. So unhone kaha ki chalo gaana-vaana karte hai, doston ko bulate hain. Unhone mera gaane suna hi nahi tha usse pehle.”
“Toh ho sakta tha ki main bahut bura singer hota and woh sab log aa jaate. But that night I sang on a little keyboard and people were sitting till 4 am and all his friends enjoyed a lot. And then I remember charming her mother by making a big lifesize portrait of her. I still have that. They’re wonderful people.”
Ali And His Wife Ayesha Were Once Kidnapped
In 2008, Ali and Ayesha were kidnapped when the couple was coming back from a dinner. Their families paid 2.5 million as ransom and only after that, they were released.
In 2009, the couple got married in Lahore, Pakistan.
