Husband of Pakistani actress ‘won’t divorce her’


The fourth husband of a popular Pakistani actress has announced that he will not divorce her after she applied to end their marriage.

Thirty-four year-old Noor Bukhari, a former model from Lahore, married fellow actor Wali Hamid Ali Khan in June 2015. Then earlier this week she suddenly announced on Twitter that her fourth marriage was over:

But her fourth husband said they had not even begun the process of divorce and he had no wish to do so. News station Samaa TV quotes the musician:

“Noor is a great lady and my wife – I will not divorce her. I think some clashes occur in every marriage but divorce is no solution to that. I am positive our marriage will continue.”

He had apparently not even been aware that she had applied for divorce. He explained:

“I’ve been busy with work and last night, it came to my knowledge that she has applied for a divorce? I will not oblige.”

Wali Hamid is a member of successful Pakistani band Raga Boyz, with his brothers Nayab and Inam. The siblings are the sons of Hamid Ali Khan, a famous classical singer.

Noor, meanwhile, has appeared in 11 Punjabi and Urdu language films to date. She directed the most recent, romantic comedy Ishq Positive.
