Fans and friends pay tributes to the ‘King of Comedy’
KARACHI: Pakistan is in a state of shock after the news of the demise of veteran comedian Umer Sharif broke the internet on Saturday.
The critically ill comedian had left Pakistan in an air ambulance on September 28 after he requested the government to provide him with medical treatment in the United States.
During a stopover in Germany, the legendary artist had contracted pneumonia. He passed away today at a local hospital in Germany at 66. Earlier, the Sindh government had also sanctioned a grant of Rs40 million for the treatment of the legendary artist.
Journalist Waseem Badami was one of the first few people to tweet about the news. Ambassador of Pakistan in Germany, Dr Mohammad Faisal later also confirmed the sad news.
Here’s how Sharif’s other fans and friends paid tribute to the ‘King of Comedy’.

So sad to lose Umar Sharif. One of the finest in his field, his wit and humour was legendary. We will miss him more in today’s world that’s mired in pessimism. RIP!!
