Celebrities are often famous for their talent and creative abilities, and it’s quite rare that their private interactions with fans and haters alike also deems them respect worthy of the public. Especially now in Pakistan it’s rare to find a popular celebrity who doesn’t exploit their privilege and isn’t completely different from his public persona. Twitter users yesterday took out the time to praise Atif Aslam by calling him an “unproblematic king” for this reason: for being a popular singer who has fans in Pakistan and abroad, but has a humble and graceful attitude and has treated everyone with courtesy.
It all started with this Twitter user acknowledging the fact that Atif Aslam was one of those rare celebrities who despite being extremely popular-has never abused his position of power or treated fans unkindly, and has stayed out of the spotlight
all celebrities should follow the atif aslam model in which we barely know or hear anything about him but his music and it stays that way

A few minutes later, twitter users began widely sharing this post by sharing their own interactions with the singer, proving that he is truly one of the most humble person out there.
This users recalled working at a hospital where Atif Aslam had donated food to the poor patients without intending to turn it into a publicity stunt for social media:
Once I was on duty in my hospital and went to see another patient in another ward and came back and my interns told me that Atif Aslam just came and gave food to all poor patients. Later I found out that it happened quite often.

Another person praised Atif for being respectful for his fans and taking pictures with all of them patiently
Attended a charity concert a few years back. After his performance he waited back stage for what must have been 30+ minutes for people to take pictures with him. Not hasty selfies. He would let you stand next to him and take proper posed pictures!
