However, we never get to have any idea about what these celebrities have to face backstage during concerts. Atif is making headlines these days for opening up about his childhood and personal likes and dislikes. He has also talked about how much supportive wife he has that Atif is so thankful to have her. Besides all these interesting stories, there is something that took away the breath of fans and it is about Atif’s son that he lost right before his performance in Turkey. Let’s find out the details below!
Atif Aslam Reveals about the Loss of His Child Right Before Performance
Celebrities are always there to entertain and put a smile on their fans’ faces. No matter how hard is the situation or how much tough life they are having, they prioritize their fans every time. Well… if you are wondering about how we can say so, here we have got an example from the legendary singer Atif Aslam.
The Doori singer recently appeared on AB Talks with Anas Bukhash, a YouTube show that highlights the human aspect of celebrities and influencers. Although Atif is now a father of a cute little son, however, he opened up about the loss of a child, surprising fans with the devastating revelation.
He explained it as:
“I lost my kid and I remember… Sarah was four to five months pregnant and I had to leave for a show. It was a show in Turkey and right before my performance, she called me and said the baby doesn’t have a heartbeat anymore.”
He further added:
“So I was like go to the doctor, ask him what’s happening and how to go about it. She said we went to the doctor and he said we have to go for something else.”
The Time When Atif Felt Helpless!
Atif Aslam admitted how helpless he felt at that time. He gathered his words as:
“I literally had to go on stage in half an hour. I went on stage, performed for two and a half hours. There were people right in front of me, drinking, enjoying themselves… I could tell they were having a good time. I came back to my room and it was 11:30 or 12 at night. This was Antalya. I asked my team to arrange a car for me. I wanted to go to Konya and visit Shams Tabraiz and Rumi’s shrine and I wanted to be alone.”
This heartbreaking revelation brought tears to everyone’s eyes and no one could have it in imagination about how Atif managed with the concert that day. He never told anyone about his loss. A friend expressed an interest in accompanying him, but he had to refuse.
While remembering the days with a heavy heart, Atif said:
“I didn’t want anyone around me… I told my friend I’m gonna go and he insisted saying I want to go, I want to be there with you. And I remember he always wanted to go to the shrine. Call me selfish but I didn’t take him along and I left. It was a three- or four-and-a-half-hour journey and I was only thinking how helpless we all are.”
“There was no one at the shrine. It was raining and I was by myself at a place where nobody would even recognize me. I wouldn’t ask why did You do that. I was not in that state. Just…how helpless we all are. We have control over nothing and yet, we fight over everything.”
Atif Aslam’s revelation is a reminder that we don’t always know what’s going on in people’s lives. Loss and grief are personal things that celebrities don’t have to share with the public. This story is for all of us to take a look at a small part of the most famous celebrity’s world who entertains people to the fullest. We need to remember that these celebrities also have hearts and they are human beings like us. These celebrities also get hurt and sometimes suffer through the worst situations in life just like the rest of us do.
