Comedian Umer Sharif is returning to the stage very soon.
He announced that he will star in a stage drama which will be held during Eid. Sharif was speaking on SAMAA TV’s programme Naya Din.
Sharif said that he will be seen in a drama serial too.
“After these projects, I will leave for a world tour. I will perform shows at the US and UK,” he remarked.
Reports have been making rounds on social media about the comedian’s health. He negated those and said that he is “absolutely fine”. I had pain in my leg for some times, but it has been treated now, he added.
He requested people to stop spreading false news about his health. “My relatives who live in different countries get worried after reading such news.” I don’t know the people who have been saying this, but I would’ve personally gone to their houses and requested them to stop sharing fake news, he added.
