Singer says he had been wishing for a house like this for a long time.

Rockstar Ali Zafar — who is soaring high with his latest stint at Coke Studio 8 — has gifted a four-bedroom villa in Lahore to his wife Ayesha Fazli.

It was earlier reported that the singer was planning on gifting a house to his partner after the arrival of their daughter, Alyza. According to Mumbai Mirror, the father of two has revealed that the family has finally moved into their dream house.

“It’s been under construction for over three years. We’ve just moved in a few months back,” he said.

“Ayesha was really touched by the gift and has done the interiors herself with a little bit of help from me. We’ve kept the decor modern, classy and minimal,” he added.

As music runs in his blood, Ali shared that the couple has installed music systems that play all the time. “We have installed music systems which will play all the time,” he said. The basement has also been converted into a recording studio.

Sharing further details about his house that spreads over 15,000 square feet, Ali revealed that he has always dreamed about it. “I come from a modest background. My parents were professors and we used to live with my grandparents in a small room. So, like everyone else, I have been wishing for a house like this for a long time and been working hard towards it,” he said.

Ali further shared that though India has been kind to him he still feels Pakistan is his real home. On buying a property in Mumbai, he said, “Mumbai has been kind to me but I don’t think as a Pakistani national I could buy property there. I visit the city, do my work and come back. This is my home.”

    Eight bed rooms and those too on a big piece of land will hurt him in future. It will cost him huge property tax and other maintenance expenses. When time is right, they cross all limits and when money is short, health is bad, entertainers blame government and ruin our lives with their miserable stories. A private swimming pool in a house is an insult to all Pakistanis. Pakistan is one of many countries where there is an acute shortage of fresh water. Recommend

    @Ch. Allah Daad – I see where you’re coming from. You’re right that when most of the folks around are struggling for a meal, its inappropriate to splurge money like this or rather make a big show of your wealth.. However a person also has right to achieve his/her dreams legitimately.. Even Warren Buffet who’s known for his simplicity and who castigated CEOs for their private jets couldn’t resist the temptation of one. This is where Bollywood actor Nana Patekar has handled the balance between rich life (not extravagant) & charity very well.Recommend

    That’s an extremely negative thing to say about someone that is filled with jealously. I think other than Nawaz Sharif no one is pure in your view.

    Stop being so critical and learn to let others live in peace and live in peace yourself.Recommend

    bahut bahut mubarak ho – may you have many many happy years in your dream home and make wonderful memories to cherish. Ali you are exceptionally talented- a remarkable voice and the most natural and endearing acting ability make you special as does your intelligence, sensitivity, empathy and humanity. The youth need role models like you. Wishing you all the very best and even greater success- you are the face of Pakistan prejudiced people mired in stereotypes need to see. Recommend

    Everything is relative. What you consider lavish lifestyle for Ali Zafar is very well within his means. What you may consider as your humble abode might be extravagant for some poor Pakistani with no home and who is struggling to buy food for his family. As long as a person lives within his means and is charitable in proportion to his earnings and income, there is nothing wrong with spending what they have.Recommend

    Google earth ‘Karachi DHA’ every other large house has a swimming pool. 1000 sq.yards and above houses are extravagant and palatial. I am against large houses though, as it promotes corruption with conspicuous consumption. Recommend

    Why are you so jealous of a celebrity?. Surely this shows you suffer from an inferiority complex. How about saying something about lavish lifestyles of your favorite PML-N politicians..

    Please let others live in peace..so much jealously only breeds hatredRecommend

    To all those criticizing Ali Zafar in the comments boxes: “He earned it. Let him do what he wants with it. If you feel it in bad taste that is a matter of opinion.”

    As for bringing politicians into it I know we cant explain who pays for Dharna’s, there is no audit on expenses of private jets and helicopters or even if charity money for cancer hospitals goes into fictitious Omani real estate projects of ‘friends’ we don’t hold out politicians accountable.

    Nor do we hold them accountable for lying. Whether on Fake Punctures or on the electricity problems that will miraculously go away in ‘our’ tenure to illegitimate children abroad. This is Our Failure as a Nation!

    As for Ali Zafar, Let the man enjoy his success Recommend

    15,000 square feet means roughly 55 marlas means roughly 3 kanals.
    Not THAT Big compared to many politicians/judges/bureaucrats/army generals luxurious homes.

    And that too, from legally hard-earned money. Great going Ali.

    P.S. Watch out for over-active/over-efficient FBR department ;) Recommend
