WEB DESK: Pakistani actor-director Azfar Ali and VJ-turned actor Naveen Waqar have parted ways, after three years of marriage.
Azfar recently contacted local media to make an official announcement of the divorce.
He said: “I have divorced my now ex-wife Naveen Waqar. We’ve been separated since July 2015 and then I filed for divorce which came through in November.”
He added, “The news of our marriage was blown way out of proportion and since it eventually became public news and information, I don’t want to keep anybody in the dark now… I also chose to do this [disclose the news] because a lot of people are calling me and inviting us to their shows for a joint interview. I want everybody to know, once and for all, that we have separated and there is no need for this.”
Azfar, however, did not clearly disclose the reason of separation stating that it’s not so important however, he just hinted at their not so good relationship at home.
“…It’ll be enough to say that we were not getting along and if things are not happy at home, there is no point in dragging them on.”
According to Azfar, the decision to split was mutual.
However, Naveen and her family members are reluctant to speak to the media on the issue stating that it’s a strictly personal matter.
Azfar was earlier married to actor Salma Hasan for 11 years, with whom he has a daughter. Salma divorced Azfar, following his marriage to Naveen.
Naveen started off her career as a VJ and became a household name after featuring as Sara in Humsafar along with co stars Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan.
Naveen and Azfar had tied the knot of marriage in 2012.
