Like many Punjabis, I grew up watching #UmerSharif’s stage plays “Bakra Qistoon Pe” and “Buddha Ghar Pe Hai”. Me and my cousins laughed hysterically as we replayed the cassette every year. South Asia’s greatest comedian + actor. Thank you for your talent, humor and love. ❤️ 🇵🇰 pic.twitter.com/TqXQ3nRqj8
