It’s a very vibrant city. This is the only city I think I really enjoy myself walking on the streets. I have played for 150,000 people here, so it has a lot of goodwill.
We, South Asians, especially Pakistanis and Indians – we’re everywhere, but this is one place where we are a lot. So I really love the fact my music is heard over here. -Atif Aslam
Aslam’s wife Sarah Bharwana shared in his excitement at being awarded a Dubai Star and the artist said he expected his friends shall too.
I’ll just stand there and say “yes!” It’s like the Hollywood Walk Of Fame so it’s quite a big deal. I have been chosen by a lot of people and I’m blessed to be among these people. It means a lot.
