The event was held to support the education of these under privileged girls whose parents being poor couldn’t afford their education, are now going to be studying sciences like neurology, medical and even strive to be an astronauts.
Ali’s PR person responded that he didn’t want to take any credit as he thinks it was his duty like every other individual whose been granted the means and power to give to his society, reports Pakistan Today.
Ali who himself was not very rich when he entered the entertainment business, and was a simple kid coming from a middle class background of two university professors as parents, has been painting since his child hood and used to speed-paint charcoal portraits in a hotel lobby to raise money for his music by selling them for Rs 500 a piece. Seems like now after receiving the success as an artist (painter, singer, model & actor) has not forgotten his roots and continues to support his people at home, proving to be an inspiration for all his countrymen.
