لوگوں کو ہنسانا دنیا کا مشکل ترین کام ہے لیکن عمر شریف نے یہ کام خوب مہارت سے کیا۔۔ میں نے ہمیشہ انکی کامیڈی انجوائے کی۔ انکے پاس بے پناہ ہنر تھا، وہ بولتے تو کوئی انکو میچ نہ کر پاتا۔ سب کو ہنسانے والا، سب کو رلا گیا۔۔ ہم سب انکے جدا ہونے پر غمگین ہیں۔ اللہ مغفرت کرے آمین— Wasim Akram (@wasimakramlive) October 2, 2021
