    I think Ali Zafar is just…WOW! He’s really the kind of guy who every girl every dreams of being with/ dreams of even loving. He’s funny, smart, caring, considerate, respectful, sensitive, cool, cute (I don’t believe in his Twittered answer above), & incredibly good-looking! He’s really, truly one-of-a-kind! They don’t make men like him anymore. And to be very frank, he’s humility and simplicity is what appealed to me. I really hope for God Almighty to bless him with happiness, good health, love, peace, perseverance & prosperity. I’d just like to give him one advice: – Ali, I am truly and sincerely very, very happy that you’ve finally made a mark in Bollywood…however, I truly hope that after becoming a famous & successful artist, that you’ll always be the same Ali Zafar that I have always adored & respected…I <3 u Ali. God bless you & your family ~ now and always…Ameen 0:)
