"I will change the way I did my wedding events."
Aiman Khan and Muneeb Butt etched their names in headlines with their expensive wedding in 2018.
The extravagant affair, characterised by lavish celebrations and a star-studded guest list, became a focal point of public attention.
The couple extended invitations to numerous prominent figures from the entertainment industry.

Critics attacked Aiman and Muneeb for what was perceived as overspending on unnecessary events.

Despite the criticism, the couple remains open about their grand wedding, weaving it into the fabric of their public narrative.
In a recent clip from TV One’s talk show circulating on social media, Muneeb Butt offered candid insights.
He talked about two main events he would change in his life if given the chance.

“I will not indulge in numerous extravagant events and will not spend excessively because of the current economic challenges in Pakistan.”
The actor underscored the inappropriateness of spending extra funds for personal happiness in such times.
He says many people, including his neighbours, are trying hard just to buy bread and butter.
Muneeb emphasised his awareness of the economic struggles faced by many in the country:
“Now, I have cut down my big events. Celebrating kids’ birthdays is another thing, but we don’t do huge events now.”
Various opinions were shared by netizens in light of his recent statements.
One user said: “What’s the use of crying over spilt milk.”

Another remarked: “I’m surprised that they are still together. Weddings like theirs, they don’t work for long.”
