Earlier, Zafar had claimed that he did not accept gifts, dowry or money from his in-laws at his wedding. He professed while speaking against dowry at Faisalabad Literature Festival.
“I set only one condition for my marriage that I wouldn’t be accepting any gifts, money or dowry from my in-laws, said Zafar at one of the recent public gatherings.
Ali Zafar not only slammed the dowry culture but also expressed his annoyance on the practice of squandering money on weddings.
He opposed the concept of saddling the bride’s father with the expectations of a lavish wedding, where a middle-class father ends up spending his lifelong savings on his daughter’s wedding under societal pressure. Adding that, “stop thinking what would people say.”
He also appreciated his beautiful wife, Aisha Fazli said that he feels blessed to have her as his wife. Expressing his views for his wife in response to a question, Ali said, “I wished to make her my life partner due to her kindness, empathy, and compassion… she never thinks badly of anyone… she is truly an angel and my support.”
Ali Zafar’s popularity and career suffered a blow when he was hit with allegations of sexual harassment allegations by renowned singer Meesha Shafi.
