Every superstar has a past, a childhood and somewhere they started from. Actor-singer Ali Zafar is no different. The singer often treats his fans to throwback videos and pictures of himself. This time around, he uploaded a picture from when he was just three-years-old. And oh boy, he has won the heart of his million fans around the globe! The Channo singer took to his Instagram handle and posted an image of himself sitting in the garden, clad in the cutest attire and fringe haircut. While most of his followers could not believe how cute he was as a baby, the most heartwarming comment came from one of his school teachers back in the day. How adorable is that?
In the caption, Zafar mentions how he has liked posing for the camera ever since he was a little kid. He wrote, “A journey through time. Bhaee ko bachpan se pose maarne ka shoque tha.” The first response came from his teacher named Uzma who seemed to have lost touch with ages ago. She replied with, “Ali Zafar did you meet this teacher again?” hinting that the picture was taken from the time she was his teacher in school.
Zafar instantly replied with, “Ma’am Uzma!!! How are you. You were one of the best, kindest teachers I have known and my first I believe. I have been wanting to get in touch with you. Your long hair, radiant smiles and my first day in school when I was crying all day and you comforted me and took me to meet the principal Mrs. Akber. I was 3 but I remember that day so vividly. How are you ma’am? Deepest respect.” During their public exchange on Instagram, Uzma replied back saying, “Met your parents last year at Defence Raya and they too recognised me. It gives me immense pleasure to see you where you are. My prayers and love for you. I remember that day. I have fond memories of you as my student too Ali.” Many users commented on the bond between a teacher and student. One post that melted our hearts read, “The World has just seen a very rare thing, a student found his teacher on the internet today, wow how beautiful it is!”
