He met his first wife who was medical student in Lahore, and eventually divorced due ‘immaturity’ aged 19. He met his second while performing at a nightclub in Istanbul and parted ways after seven years and having one child.
“Love lasts for six months, the rest is companionship and respect,” he said.
“You only love your mother, children, and your siblings. This is what I learnt after being kicked out by three women,”
He recalled that Bunny was a nickname given by his father which he carried forward and eventually turned out to be lucky for him.
“I never aspired for fame until once I was in Italy when I realised that I should have my own album”
