Popular actress, Sumbul Touqeer Khan often leads the headlines for her personal as well as professional life. She became a household name with her role on the show, Imlie, and impressed everyone with her successful stint in the reality show, Bigg Boss 16. And now, Sumbul is once again making the headlines as her father, Touqeer Hassan Khan, is all set to get married for the second time.
According to multiple media reports, it has been stated that Sumbul Touqeer's father, Touqeer Hassan Khan, is all set to tie the knot once again. The actress' father will get married to Nilofer, who is a divorcee, and she also has a daughter from her first marriage. The duo will have an intimate wedding next week, and Sumbul is super excited to welcome the new members of her family. In an interview with The Times Of India, Sumbul shared her excitement about her father's second marriage and said:
"Our father has been our greatest source of inspiration and support for the last many years. Saniya and I are very happy for him."
Sumbul Touqeer expressed her feelings on her father's second marriage and shared that they are looking forward to their new sister joining the family and are quite excited about the same. The actress further mentioned that her uncle, Iqbal Hussain Khan, who was seen on Bigg Boss 16 during the family week, convinced her father to get remarried. In Sumbul's words:
"We are very happy and looking forward to welcoming them into our family. Along with our father's wife, a new sister will also join our family and we are extremely excited about it. Our bade papa lqbal Hussain Khan played an instrumental role in this marriage. I am grateful to him."
Sumbul Touqeer's father, Touqeer Hassan Khan also talked about his upcoming wedding, which has made big headlines. In an interview with ETimes TV, Khan said that he is naturally in a happy space, but mentioned that he's feeling a bit nervous. In his words:
"Well, Sumbul and Saniya have been wanting me to marry since 10 years. Yeh inki saazish hai, bade papa ke saath milkar, ghabrahat ho rahi hai. Would talk more about Nilofer and our wedding only later."
For the unversed, Sumbul Touqeer Khan's parents parted ways when she was just six years old, and since then, her father has raised both his daughters single-handedly. Time and again, the actress heaped praises on her father and shared that she respects her parents' decision to get divorced mutually. The former Bigg Boss 16 contestant, earlier in an interview with ETimes, spoke about trying to find a bride for her father and said:
"I have tried finding a bride for my dad once but the experience wasn't a good one. So as much as I would like him to be remarried, I would want him to be ready for it too."
Recently, Sumbul Touqeer Khan also made the headlines for her massive fallout with her rumoured beau, Fahmaan Khan. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Fahmaan confessed their fallout and revealed that it was Sumbul's father, who influenced her as he had an issue with his daughter working with him on Tabish Pasha's song, Beirada. Talking about the same, Fahmaan said that Sumbul's father didn't like a video featuring him and Sumbul, wherein she was seen lying on his hand while they fell asleep on the sets of Imlie, as they were tired of shooting. Soon after, Fahmaan told Hassan about his new music video with Sumbul, the latter objected to it and even asked Sumbul to part ways.
Congratulations, Sumbul and her family!
