Celebrities are banding together to ask for prayers for comedian Omer Sharif.

The veteran entertainer is unwell and has made a request to Prime Minister Imran Khan to help facilitate his medical treatment abroad. Speaking to ARY, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill said the government would help facilitate his visas and travel abroad and would try to help pay for the surgery he requires.

Sharif's wife also made an appeal for prayers on his Facebook page and said the next 24 hours were very critical. In a followup post, she clarified that they have only asked the government to help facilitate Sharif's travel and visas. "We just wanted to clarify that Omer and his family didn’t ask for any financial assistance from government and any entity," she said.

Soon after, a number of celebrities took to social media to pray for Sharif's health and ask others to do the same.

Actor Mawra Hocane prayed for his health.

Director Nabeel Qureshi also sent prayers Sharif's way.

"I love you Umer Sharif bhai," wrote actor Hira Mani.

“May God give health and strength. You are the heart of Pakistan. God always keeps people who spread joy safe. May God fix you right up, that is my prayer.”

Actor Zarnish Khan said she was proud of the prime minister for taking notice. “[Omer Sharif] is a legend and has served Pakistan more than we can imagine; he deserve the support of the government of Pakistan. May God give him health and a long life.”

Actor Ahsan Khan wished Sharif health and a speedy recovery.

Singer Shuja Haider called Sharif a star whose glow can be seen by the whole world. He called for prayers for Sharif, whom he described as someone who has made Pakistan's name shine.

Actor Aiman Khan shared Haider's post with an "Ameen".

Model and actor Omer Shahzad wished him good health and a long life.

I am sorry, but these popular celebrities have made so much money during their carrier, in millions, I am sure they don't pay fair tax, but when they get sick they want money from government for treatment. I am not saying Umer Sharif also didn't pay tax, but I am generally speaking

what's the truth. His sisters say that he has minor chest infection and no serious complications and is resting comfortably at home. Then, he himself says that he needs to go abroad for treatment and now his wife says this.....

Omar made a lot of money in his career, why is he asking for help from government? Charity is for very poor people. I wish him well but this is wrong.

These actors/actresses work throughout their acting careers and get paid for each act, then when they grow old or get sick ask for Government’s assistance, why? Why should the Government help you, you should have saved money for the rainy days like these. Government may assist people who directly aided keeping the country secure like Nuclear scientists or missile engineers. What did Omar Shareef do to get any help from the Government? This nonsense is like Bruce Wills or Brad Pitt falling sick and asking the US Government to help pay for their expenses. Doesn’t make any sense!

It's funny how these same celebs tweet degrading comments about thesethe veteran stars and give them zero respect( e.g Firdous Jamal incident) but when a publicity opportunity arrives, they stick to sympathy news like flies stick on sweet.

Stop criticizing an old ailing person. He is not asking for money, he is asking for help in travel arrangements. He has heart problems with some severe complications but why people are interested in what ailment he has? Pakistanis want every suffering of other people to be linked to some sin of the past, what a society we are!

@Tamza Atleast read the news first, he was just asking for help to get visa not money. Because of Covid issue many countries need people to get quarantine or get vaccinated before going over there. It is the government who is offering money. Only Nawaz Sharif and Zardari needs people money for their treatment because they are real artist.

@Imran Don't you know?? He's suffering from the same ailment that the other infamous Sharifs seem to suffer from. Take your pick: Nawaz Sharif, Hamza Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Hassan Sharif, Hussain Sharif and all those related to, married into or were the disciples of Mian Mohammd Sharif at one time or the other.

Wishing him speedy recovery. But him asking for government help is not agreeable. He must have made enough money in his career to take care of himself and his family. If not this is lesson to all.

I don’t understand why do we only call actors and actresses as celebrities? Infact celebrities are famous persons. Do we have only media persons as famous and not others who have done miracles in other fields n we feel ashamed in calling them as Celebrities eg A Qadeer, Edhi, Jahngir Khan, Miandad, etc

All these so called stars instead of tweeting should get together and start a fund raiser for Umer Shareef so that he can get the necessary medical treatment. This should have been immediate. Shameful that they are profiteering from the misery of an ailing man who has given his life to Pakistan and im sure has helped some of those who has joined the media.
