Omer Sharif leaves for US

He is accompanied by wife Zareen

Ailing comedian Omer Sharif has left for the United States in a German air ambulance.

Omer will reach the US via Germany. He is accompanied by his third wife, Zareen Ghazal.

"I'm waiting for Omer," said Zareen, who had arrived at the airport before him.

Omer was set to leave for the US on Monday, September 27, but his health was reported to have worsened. Omer's family expressed fears that the air ambulance hired from Germany could leave Pakistan without the comedian.

The Civil Aviation Authority allowed the aircraft to land in Pakistan on Sunday. The ambulance informed Omer’s family that they would leave Pakistan with or without Omer in 12 hours when the rent ran out. Zareen appealed to the prime minister to intervene and stop the ambulance from taking off without Omer Sharif.

On Monday, Cardiologist Syed Tariq Shahab, actor Reema Khan’s husband, said that Omer would have to wait 48 hours before the experts could make a decision about travel. The flight was postponed after Omer’s blood pressure dropped during dialysis, Dr Tariq added.

Omer will be treated at the George Washington University Hospital by a team of eight specialists, including Dr Tariq.

The Sindh government has released Rs40 million for Omer’s treatment.

The comedian was initially to travel without his family. Omer’s first wife and sons, Jawad and Fawad, were booked on a commercial flight by the Sindh Health Department.

Omer has been diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation (a condition in which blood leaks backward instead of flowing out to the rest of the body) after being admitted to the Aga Khan University Hospital for congestive heart failure.

    Here you clearly see a mismanagement, when sir omer’s health was better they formed a committee to decide whether he needs a foreign treatment or not and because of this mess-up, un proficiency and negligency they delayed and put his life in danger and play with Asia most famous veteran comedy life, hence know he isn’t in a position to trave, though these bunch of jack-ass didn’t realise the situation and fucked up the case.please Allah help him. Instead of him if any politicians life had in danger we would have seen a different treatment for sure. May Allah Curse on this system and help us.

      Please always try to pull out thr most appropriate information before commenting on or to anyone. The issue was taken on top most priority both by Federal Govt and Sindh Govt for the issuance of visa and Air ambulance respectively and it was the air ambulance which was scheduled to arrive on that day when he was airlifted.

      Bro always have some info before commenting so that it would not lead others in wrong direction

    There should b a better insurance system, any fed.or provincial government has nothing to do with these actors r politicians health r life. Sindhu government did good but , rather they should arrange health system , and pay insurance premium, r copays rest these wealthy actors,politicians,cricketers should not beg / blame to any of the governments.
    Only people who cannot afford to pay monthly,annually premiums, that should b paid by the federal r provincial governments.
    It’s a solution not against anyone.
    Please if u have better solution r idea write down.
