LAHORE: Amidst the Meesha Shafi sexual harassment controversy, singer-actor Ali Zafar celebrated his 38th birthday on Friday.
To mark the occasion, Ali Zafar’s wife, Ayesha Fazli penned a lovely, heartwarming birthday wish for her husband on Instagram.
“Happiest Birthday to the love of my life! The kindest and bravest person I know! Can’t think of a better combination to have in a life partner. I love you, Ali,” she wrote alongside a picture she posted.
Ali also got emotional in a post on social media, where he wrote, “Every time I think of the words to thank you all for your growing love, I fail to put them together. How can words define what you all, your love and faith means. I remember 20 years ago when I set myself on the journey to earn this very love and admiration and most of all “respect”, had nothing but a dream and my faith that one day Allah will bless me with all this.
How time goes by, none can tell. All one can tell is that by each passing day as one nears his destiny to meet his creator, one would be a fool if every single moment was not spent in thanking Him for His blessings, this life and everyone and anything that was a part of it. Thank you for your love.”
Both Ali and Ayesha have never shied away from expressing their love for each other on social media. The post goes to show that Ali has his wife’s full support in the ongoing battle between him and Shafi.
Ali’s co-star in his upcoming film, Teefa in Trouble, Maya Ali also wished the actor on social media. Posting a picture of him, Maya wrote, “Salgirah Mubarik, Teefa, Ali Zafar. May this year bring a lot of happiness and success in your life Ameen, and may you keep shining and giving us hits as you always have done… Now don’t forget to give me my treat Mr teefa… Enjoy your day.”
Veteran actor Resham also visited the singer’s residence to wish him, pictures of which she shared on social media.
Ali Zafar is one of Pakistan’s most popular stars and has won hearts both in the country and across the world. Zafar has been part of several Bollywood films and will be making his Pakistani movie debut with the upcoming Teefa in Trouble, which is expected to release this July.
