Jal’s guitarist and vocalist Goher Mumtaz recently got engaged to Islooite Anam Ahmad. Khurram Mumtaz, Goher’s elder brother and manager of Jal, confirmed the news and revealed the highlights of the event.

“He got engaged on September 15,” he told The Express Tribune. “Goher is certainly very happy about it.” The ceremony took place about a fortnight ago at a private event the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad. Rumour has it that the newly-engaged couple have known each other for some time and that a small baat pakki ceremony had already been held between the families.

He further revealed that Goher’s fiancé Ahmad is currently a student in a local educational institute and the rumours regarding her being a model are a not entirely true. “She has done a few local fashion shows in the city, but she is not a model by profession.” When asked whether she would continue to pursue her modeling passion after tying the knot with Goher, he said: “I have no idea but I believe she will not continue with it.”

As far as the fans are concerned, Khurram said: “If you check out the Facebook page, it seems people are pretty happy and are wishing the couple good luck in their future — even the female fans seem very excited.”

Keeping specific details private, he said that the wedding is expected to take place next year and the couple plans to settle down in Lahore. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

    @Sohail Khurshid:

    Its your talent in Pakistan. Learn to respect them and do a little research before posting non sense. I don’t see you with a guitar making news, so I think the more appropriate question is Sohail who?

    This is the elite culture now? An elder brother of the fiance is telling newspapers that her soon to be sis-in-law will not continue modeling !

    @Alam: please read the complete article before commenting.. Her bro-in-law happens to be the manager of Jal. Hence, he is speaking as a spokesperson for the band!

    @ Sohail Khurshid

    Goher is the man behind all the music jal produced he wrote most of the songs if not all specially ADAT and he is also the composer of all those songs which made Atif Aslam all famous Rock star….and Goher is super talented and much better musician than most of the pop music stars in this country and i know this coz we were together in the university and guy is extremely down to earth and nice…..Although i think his manager brother khurram was the guy who became the reason of his break up with atif….learn to respect and learn to learn before you comment.

    @Azi: Are you Gohar? To be honest I agree with Sohail that never heard of Jal or Gohar. But congratulations to the couple anyway.

    couldn’t find anything else to criticize bro?

    @Sohail Khurshid Gohar Mumtaz, of the band Jal. I’m sure you’ve heard Aadat, who hasn’t. But just btw, it says so on the first line of the news.

    @Nasamajh: So, what does this have to do with the band? Isn’t wedding supposed to be a personal affair? Pathetic elites.

    Marriage is one thing career another. Why should she not continue her modelling or even an acting career if she has one. Recommend

    till yesterday, the couple were pictured on the article. Today its the bride. Guess ET has no illusions about what it takes to get the most clicks.

    I honestly do not think Goher would have enough care or time to argue with you. I am a citizen of Pakistan that is proud of its talents and their accomplishments. You on the other hand seem to dislike anyone having more fame than you. What have you done lately that shows on news your contribution to the progress of this country?

    The title is rather assertive, “No longer single”, As if a hot sale has just been called off.Recommend

    Kardashians also make headlines. So what? Do you really have to be funny?
    What benefit is his guitar imparting to our economy? We are a developing country probably at the bottom of the ladder. Lets grow and then worry about JALs and HAMSAFARs etc.
    Right now, we need contributors. Not noisy gawayyas.
