Pakistani singer Atif Aslam is all set to tie the knot with Sara Bharwana today. The wedding of the skilled singer, who was last seen in ‘Sur-Kshetra’, will see the attendance of family members, relatives, social elite and the popular personalities from the world of music.
According to reports, the mehndi ceremony of Atif Aslam was held at a club in Lahore on Tuesday evening.
His beau Sarah completed her education from Kinnaird College. If sources are to be believed, Sarah and Atif have known each other for close to seven years. While the wedding is scheduled for March 28, his valima will be held at the same venue on 29 March.
The Pakistani pop singer was recently in news when he behaved in a rather rude way with his iconic singer and co-judge Asha Bhosle.
Asha, who took his behavior in a sportingly, gave up when he went beyond the bounds of courtesy and walked out of the show. Apparently, Sahara India's CEO Boney Kapoor had to intervene and persuade to get her back on the show.
In one of the interviews, Ashaji said, "It's just drama and masala to get viewers' attention. Atif is a very good boy. And so handsome. He touched my feet at the beginning of the show and said I was like his mother. Yes, we did have some initial differences. But nothing major,just like a mother bickering with her child."
But ‘Sur Kshetra’ producer Gajendra Singh said, "Atif's conduct with Ashaji was not proper. We were all shocked and wondered why he was behaving this way. Finally matters came to a head and Ashaji walked out of the show for a couple of weeks. Two people persuaded her to return. One was Boney Kapoor and the other was Ashaji's niece Rachana Shah. If they hadn't mediated God knows what we'd have done. Ashaji is like the foundation and touchstone of the show."

Take a look at the card and some interesting facts about Atif Aslam.
Atif was born into a Muslim family in Wazirabad, of Gujranwala District, Punjab, in Pakistan and educated in Lahore & Rawalpindi. He went to kindergarten at Kimberley Hall School, Lahore. But in 1991 he moved to Rawalpindi where he continued his studies in St Paul's School.
Atif retruned to Lahore in 1995 where he continued his studies in Divisional Public School, Lahore. He started his FSC in PAF Inter College Lahore. Atif is also a holder of a Bachelor's degree.
On 17 July 2004 the first album titled ‘Jal Pari’ of Atif Aslam was released. The album stood on the success of “Aadat” but as the weeks progressed; it was made clear to everyone that Atif wasn’t merely a one hit wonder.
The album featured various smash hit tracks such as “Bheegi Yaadein”, “Ehsaas”, “Mahi Ve”, “Ankhon Sey” along with the title track “Jalpari”. Atif came up with his own sound. His unique vocal capabilities and powerful renditions elevated him to stardom within weeks. The album had become the youth anthem of Pakistan.
Atif never came from a family of musicians nor was he musically trained, but he used all these factors to his advantage. All he had was raw talent and the passion to be a musician. He was courageous enough to sing in his own style without giving an ear to his detractors.
Many believe that the courage and passion he displayed in his first album became the foundation of his success. As Atif rode on the success of Jal Pari in Pakistan, he also proved that he was a stage performer through his concerts in the Indian Subcontinent.
People were amazed to experience the kind of voice quality Atif was able to deliver in a live performance. His energy on stage, his charisma, his ability to work the crowd and his vocals made him the most sought after live performer in Pakistan and abroad.
The artist started performing to sellout crowds on a regular basis. The energy level never reduced but the crowd kept on increasing. He has always admired Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Abida Parveen.
