Actor Farhan Ali Agha has stepped into politics by officially joining the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI).
The formal announcement was made by the actor on Monday at a press conference.
“I am joining the PTI under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan,” Farhan Ali Agha said.
“Pakistan is going through a difficult time right now. My country, your country. We were born here. Fame, name, respect, we got it all from here. I’ve joined this cause because Pakistan needs honest and trustworthy people to come forward so that PM Imran Khan’s vision and Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s dream can be achieved. A country where common people can get justice,” he said.
“I’ve grown up listening to tales of love for the country. And when I hear Prime Minister Imran Khan tell multiple people have continued to harm the country, I wish that people, who love the nation, who boast nationalism, come forth and deliver.”
“This is my first step into politics. However, the love I hold for this country is decades old,” he said. “We will take Pakistan forward, [the PTI] considers it a mission to serve the masses,” the actor added.
Farhan Ali Agha became a household name in 1990 with numerous Tv commercials and later stepped into acting.
His famous Pakistani drama serials include Sadqay Tumhare, Deemak, and Tere Baghair.
Farhan’s recent TV appearance was in Geo Entertainment’s Raaz e Ulfat.
