After Pakistani actor Noor Bukhari publicly announced her decision to divorce her singer/actor husband Wali Hamid, the latter has taken to social media to share his thoughts on the matter.
Countering the finality of Noor's post with a more hopeful strain in his message, the singer asks for privacy and requests followers to refrain from badmouthing his wife.
The singer wrote on his Facebook page: "A heartiest humble request to all ‘'Please refrain from commenting negative about Noor, I found my soulmate in her, we had the bestest times of our life together and I still love her, respect her and always will and never want to part ways."
He asked people to "respect our personal feelings and pray for us." as it's a "personal matter and let us handle personally."
Name-calling and blaming women are common phenomena upon the occurrence of a divorce, and it's refreshing to see Wali stand up for Noor even at this difficult stage in their relationship.
Wali Hamid and Noor Bukhari tied the knot in 2015. Wali is the son of renowned classical singer Hamid Ali Khan. Also a vocalist, Wali starred in and sung for Noor's directorial debut Ishq Positive.
