“I am from Rayati village in Balakayaty area so they often call me by Zrar Rayati. I have been singing Hairan since 1973, and because I enjoy singing, I do it for free on many occasions and events so many people also recognize me by Zrar Hairan. In 1986 while I was singing in a wedding, I saw a girl and I wanted to marry her. We are now married. That experience affected me so much that even now I go back to that same spot every time I sing in a wedding. Love is very precious, and because my love for my wife is so genuine, and that’s why I believe it’s precious. I’m always baffled by how people can get in love several times because I always say that falling in love happens only once, when it happens more it’ll lose its value.”
