The king of comedy, Umer Sharif has been facing illness for a while now. He also requested Prime Minister Imran Khan to help him go abroad for treatment. His doctors revealed that the veteran comedian needs medical treatment that can only be availed in a few countries including USA and Saudi Arabia. Since then, prayers are pouring in from across the border.
Fans sent prayers as the video clip, shared by Waseem, asking the government for assistance went viral. Aside from fans even celebrities from across the border are praying for the Pakistani icon. They have also requested the government to pay heed to Umer’s request.
The King of Punjabi Pop and Bhangra, Daler Mehndi asked his followers to pray for the Bakra Qiston Pe actor. In a video message, the composer / singer asked the Pakistani PM to immediately address the matter and help save Umer Sharif.
