ISLAMABAD: The concept of serious reportage took a hilarious turn last week after a Pakistan-based journalist decided to live report from his own wedding.
Hanan Bukhari, a reporter with local Pakistani channel City 41, interviewed his newly-wedded wife, in-laws and other family members as the ceremony took place.
Interestingly, the channel chose to dedicate an entire segment to Bukhari's wedding. While interviewing, Bukhari asks the most pertinent questions: "Aap ko kaisa lag raha hai?"

Giving the segment an investigative turn, it's revealed that Bukhari pursued his wife for nearly four years before she finally accepted his proposal. He further states that it's a love match.
Donned in a groom’s attire, Bukhari held a mic while interviewing and informing viewers that he is very happy about the entire event. The footage of the wedding ceremony went viral on social media.
