Shall be going for a simple, three day wedding next time, says Muneeb Butt after criticism

Saying that while the entire never ending wedding thing was fun and all, actor Muneeb Butt expressed that he would much rather have a simple three day wedding when next it is time for him to mount the proverbial horse.

“I am a simple man. Simplicity is what I preach. And while it was pretty cool, the next time I get married I’m going to stick with a nice, and easy three day function” he said to media persons after walking out of his waleema, the final event of his much prolonged wedding.

Butt had recently gotten married to fellow actor Aimen Khan after a prolonged engagement, and the multiple functions spanning over weeks had gained a lot of attention over social media. There had been much criticism of the opulence of the wedding by people on social media, to wich Muneeb Butt said he would not do it again.  

“I think long weddings are fun. That’s why I had one. But as I’ve said, I love simplicity, and I am going to listen to my fans. So I won’t have a particularly extravagant wedding the next time” he said while he was holding his new bride’s hand, walking out of the marriage venue to their car.

“I just think we really need to give back to society, and I am going to give back with a simple mehndi, barat, waleema style wedding he said” staring into the distance and gesturing animatedly with his hand, as Aiman Khan looked on in stunned silence.

“Besides the Mayun and the sangeet functions don’t even really count”.

“What can I say? I am a bit of a saint that way” he ended.
