Daanish Khan: Umarah is the ‘barkat’ in my life

Late music composer Naushad’s granddaughter Umarah Naushad Ali’ husband Daanish Khan cannot stop singing her praises. He says that Umarah has a very clear personality and is totally honest in her actions.

“Marrying Umarah has been the greatest blessing in my life. She is the ‘barakat’ in my life, as I always say this to her. With Umarah, there is no pretence. She has an uncanny ability to understand my thoughts without me uttering a word. Our minds resonate, complementing each other’s strengths and filling in for each other’s weaknesses seamlessly. Her wealth of life experience and wisdom make her my go-to advisor, and her suggestions always prove invaluable,” he says.

Talking about what she means in his life, he adds, “Umarah isn’t just my life partner; she’s my best friend, and I’m sincerely grateful to the divine forces that brought us together. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and Umarah’s culinary prowess is simply unmatched. From intimate dinners to hosting large gatherings of 30 to 40 guests, she effortlessly whips up a variety of delectable dishes.”

He adds, “Her talents don’t end there—Umarah possesses an innate attention to detail in everything she does. Despite juggling multiple roles, she remains humble and grounded, striking a perfect balance between her professional and personal life. As her partner, I couldn’t be prouder of her achievements. As the granddaughter of the legendary Padma Bhushan awardee Naushad Ali, she’s driven by a desire to make her Abbajaan and the legacy of Naushad’s family proud with every endeavour she undertakes.”
