In 2008, Asif co-authored a book, Tales of Two Cities, with the noted Indian columnist Kuldip Nayar. The book was edited by David Page of the BBC and published by Roli Books in New Delhi.

A year later when Pakistan won the World Cup Twenty20 Tournament, Asif edited and compiled a book on Shahid Afridi, the architect of the victory. Boom Boom Shahid Afridi is a mini coffee table book and has been on the bestsellers’ list for several months.

Asif is currently working on a book on Mehdi Hasan and has involved his fans, well known personalities and music critics from India and Pakistan. The book will carry two CDs featuring popular and rare songs and ghazals, recorded over the last four decades.
