Sanam Marvi is a celebrated Pakistani Singer who has made a distinguished name in Sufi and Folk singing. She, other than Abida Parven, is considered one of the finest singers of the Sufi Genre. She started singing at a very young age and got training from her father, who was also a folk singer.
Sanam married Ali after her former husband Aftab Ahmed was killed in Karachi the same year. The couple has three children together. In February, Marvi and her husband Hamid Ali officially parted ways after a Lahore family court approved of Marvi’s request for khula. Marvi had filed for khula on February 8. She claimed that Ali started to abuse her in front of their children. “I tolerated abuse from my husband for the sake of my kids”, she said.
Recently Sanam Marvi was hospitalized after having severe anxiety attacks. Sanam rushed to the hospital due to low blood pressure and a severe anxiety attack on Wednesday.
Taking to her official Facebook account, Sanam shared that she has been suffering from severe depression and anxiety because she is not with her sons. “A few days ago, it was my children Mustafa Ali and Ward Ali’s birthdays while they were away from me”, said the Hairaan Hua singer. “What’s even worse is that the schools are open, but my eldest son Behlool Ali has been barred from attending school and is forced to sing”. She remarked that the situation is painful.
While sharing details about her recent hospital visit, Marvi added that she was taken to the hospital due to anxiety attacks and high blood pressure, despite taking her medicine regularly. “After monitoring for a few hours, I recovered completely and have returned home”, she said.
She later went live on Facebook and thanked those who prayed for her and inquired about her health. Marvi remarked that since a smile can hide a lot of pain, ordinary people don’t really believe that a person is suffering from depression. She also referred to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case. The actor who was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14 was suffering from bipolar disorder and depression. Marvi also added that she is praying for her relatives and sister, even though they are writing things against her. “I pray for them but my only advice is to research before writing anything”, she said.
