With marriage comes a set of relationships with in-laws added to them and fortunate are the ones, who, with love and respect, form a bonding in which the term 'in-law' can be removed. For a newly-wedded bride, when her mother-in-law becomes her mother and she forms a father-like bond with her father-in-law, there couldn't be a happier feeling in her sasural. Gauahar Khan is the lucky one, who shares a warm camaraderie with her parents-in-law. It was on December 25, 2020, when Gauahar had said Qubool Hai to the love of her life, Zaid Darbar, embarking on her 'happily ever after' journey with him.
When Gauahar Khan and Zaid Darbar had decided to get married, it was his father, Ismail Darbar, who was over the moon as his son found a life partner like Gauahar. Recalling a beautiful moment from Gauahar and Zaid's wedding, Ismail had said that during the rituals, the bride's mother asked him to take care of her daughter. The proud father-in-law, Ismail's reply had brought tears in everyone's eyes as he retorted, "I told her that aap ki beti itni kaabil hai ki woh mere poore parivaar ka khayyal rakhegi."
Ismail Darbar turned 57 on June 1, 2021, and his son, Zaid Darbar and daughter-in-law, Gauahar Khan made the day extra special with their heartfelt posts. Gauahar posted two throwback pictures from her wedding in which Ismail's happiness knew no bounds and captioned them as "Happy happy birthday daddy... @ismaildarbarofficial u have been so warm n welcoming to me n made me a daughter. U pamper me with food n attention. U are a great host and dost. Most loving n childlike too. Zaid n I love you. may Allah give u the longest life of happiness n health. Ameen."
Zaid Darbar posted a lovely picture with his father, Ismail Darbar and revealed what he has taught him in his life. Wishing for his daddy's longest life from Allah, Zaid wrote, "My Daddy, to the world, you are a legend in the music fraternity, to me, you are a strong, brave, righteous father who has taught me the most important lessons of life. You have been an amazing son to your parents, the coolest uncle to all my cousins and an amazing dad to me. Alhamdulillah! Thank you for everything, and I pray to Allah to grant you the longest life with all your dreams come true. Ameen! Love you Daddy. Happy birthday "
It was in March 2021 when Gauahar Khan's father, Zafar Ahmed Khan had passed away and as a eulogy, she had written in an Instagram post, " My Hero. No man like u, Ever heartbroken! My father has passed, to the ever after as an Angel. Alhamdulillah. His passing away was a testament to his beautiful life n the best soul he was. Forever My Pappa. I love you oh so much. I am sooooo much of you Pappa. N yet can never ever be even a percent of your magnanimous personality. #MyForeverShiningStar Keep him in your prayers please. Innal lillahee wainna ilayhi raajeeoon."
Zaid Darbar had also posted a throwback picture with Gauahar Khan and her father, Zafar Ahmed Khan from one of their pre-wedding functions. Captioning the all-smiling picture with the eulogy, Zaid had written, " My father in law by relation, but I felt like his son from the heart. It was my honour to know you Pappa, and my blessing to have had the opportunity to serve you even a lil bit. I truly love you and I know you loved me too. I know you will be smiling your innocent smile in JANNAH FOREVER. Ameen. I shall take care of your daughter, always. In sha Allah."
Here's wishing a very happy birthday to Ismail Darbar!
