The world of journalism may look glamourous from outside but it is tough as a career path. Generating good stories isn’t easy but probably one of the hardest things to do. Knowing what you’re reporting, and your audience, makes all the difference.
A journalist in Pakistan got so engrossed in this profession that he thought it would be a good idea to do live reporting from his marriage venue. Hanan Bukhari, who works as a news reporter for City 41 channel, gave live updates from his own wedding. Yes, you heard it right!
Taking a mic, he said:
“Bahot khushi ka din ha mere liye bhi aur mere gharwalo ke liye bhi. Meri kyunki love marriage hai aur love marriage mein meri wife bhi khaasi khush hain. Na sirf meri wife balki unke ghar wale bhi khush nazar aate hain. Mere waalde mohatarram bhi yahan maujood hain jinhone betahasha ant tak mehnat karne ke baad yeh din dekha hai. Aur tamam intezamaat bhi sambhaale the unhone. “
[English translation — “My family members and I are very happy today. Since it is a love marriage, my wife and her family members are happy too. My parents present here have gone to lengths and made arrangements to make this day come true.”]
He then walks up to his bridge and asks:
“Aapke liye sports cars le ke aaya, heavy bikes le ke aaya…Iss hawale se aapka kya kehna hai?”
[English translation — “I got you sports cars, superbikes, what do you have to say?”]
To which she responds:
“Bahot acha laga mujhe… bahot acha laga mujhe aapne meri pehli khwaaish puri ki, main ummeed karti hoon aap aage bhi isi tarah saari zindagi, saari khwaaishein aap puri karenge, aap mujhe khush rakhenge.”
[English translation — “I am very happy today. You fulfilled my first wish, I hope you fulfil all my future wishes and keep me happy.”]
The video was uploaded on City 41’s official YouTube channel later.

Twitterati too had a field day over this:
That os NOT hilarious. That is stupidity. Being a groom is much more dignified than being a reporting journalist.

And why not? Why should only Imran khan have the privilege of his wedding/ marriage be on media only? This what our journalism trends are these days. No?

Another great milestone for Pakistan’s unprofessional media. Let’s how many Pakistani TV journalists decide to commit suicide after this.

This reporter can clearly give Chand Nawab a run for his money.
