KARACHI: News recently broke that veteran actor and comedian Umer Sharif has fallen ill although the exact cause of his deteriorating health hasn’t been disclosed. The comedian has since made an appeal to the Prime Minister to help in his treatment process, although the help he’s asking is not monetary in nature. Instead, he’s asked for government help in facilitating his travel for medical purposes.

The clip of Umer Sharif was played on the Waseem Badami show where the comedian talks about how doctors have advised that the best treatment available for him would be in America. And so, he went on to say that he’s always been there to help Imran Khan when it came to funding other people’s treatments in the Shaukat Khanum Hospital and all he asks in return is for the Prime Minister to help facilitate his ability to travel for his treatment.
