Mohammad Zafarullah – Ali Zafar Father

Lahore born, Ali Zafar comes from an educated middle-class family. His father is Mohammad Zafarullah who is himself an artist in his own right, he is a painter who retired as the Chairman of the Fine Arts Department of his college, University of Punjab, in Pakistan. Ali Zafar considers his father the conventional good person, a good human being who has never done anything wrong in his life.
Describing his childhood, Ali Zafar has recounted in an interview that how when he was a small child, his parents had built with utmost difficulty, a small house in the upper crest area of Lahore, in Pakistan on borrowed money and had to move out of their home when Ali Zafar was a teen of fourteen years, because they couldn’t afford to live in that house any longer. This can be considered to be a kind of defining moment for Ali because he remembers asking his dad how much was required to live in that house and had taken the decision there and then that he would make sure that he would earn that kind of money, one day.
Life has come a full circle for now, Ali Zafar and his wife and son live with his parents and brothers in that very house. Ali’s father manages all of his finances and Ali Zafar continues to give his father all the money that he earns and shares a joint account with him. He says honestly that he has no idea how much money he has and where it goes. He, as well as his wife are happy to receive pocket money from his father. Mohammad Zafarullah uses Ali’s money to either invest in or to donate it to the charities Ali Zafar wants to help.
