One of the most controversial marriage of recent times was when Azfar Ali and Humsafar star Naveen Waqar married.

What was controversial about this marriage was the fact that Azfar left his previous wife Salma to marry Naveen, many fans did not like this act.


After this marriage, both went into somewhat self exile and did not appear on screen until recently.

Rumors say that both were very upset over the response of people. Azfar’s ex wife Salma called him a baby as he wanted attention all the time. After the couple were blessed with a baby Azfar felt ignored. Marriage with Salma lasted for 11 years and with Naveen only a few.

Azfar had this to say:

“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.”

“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.”

Naveen’s brother said that the matter was personal and did not want to discuss while Azfar explained the reason behind the divorce.

“I don’t think the reason behind the divorce is important, 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.”
