Regarded as the best playback singer of his generation, Atif Aslam has recorded numerous chart-topping songs. Due to his success and popularity, the Pakistani singer has more or less cemented his place as a legend in showbiz.

However, we as a nation have not been very good when it comes to treating or caring for our legends.

Recently, we lost TV legend Tariq Aziz, whom people seemed to have forgotten before his demise. However, everyone starting appreciating him once news broke of his passing. This begs the question – what does it take to become a respected legend?

That’s the same question Atif Aslam answered in an interview.

The singer talked about how everyone is so cruel and one has to die in order to become a legend.

“In this country, if you want to become a legend you can’t become one unless you die. It is such a sad thing and due to this, we lost so many people. We never appreciated them and when they died everyone was like ‘yes he was so nice’.”
