Earlier this month, the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz award-winning comedian has issued a video message to Prime Minister Imran Khan on a television show, asking for assistance with medical treatment which can only be provided abroad. Anchor Waseem Badami had then explained that the treatment required by Umer Sharif is available only in three countries: the United States, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
