Reema Khan wrote, “My husband - Dr Syed Tariq Shahab, is on his way to Doha, Qatar with Team-USA, to help and take care of the Afghan refugees. I am very proud of him for his dedication, hard work and sacrifice. And I pray to Allah that he has a very safe and successful trip, Ameen.” 

Reema Khan was married to Dr Syed Tariq Shahab in 2011, after which she said goodbye to the showbiz and is now living in the United States. A few years back she came back and started work again and did few projects.

Indian singer Daler Mehndi, who is known as king of Punjabi pop and Bhangra, appealed for prayers for the veteran comedian. He requested Prime Minister Imran Khan to pay immediate attention to the matter.

In his video message, Mehndi addressed Imran Khan and recalled the time when he came to Pakistan for Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital and raised funds with Sharif.

"Umar Sharif joined you on your call. Today he needs you. As prime minister, you have a lot of power in your hands. Earlier, artist Amanullah Sahib passed away and now Umar Sharif is not feeling well. "

"I saw his video which I did not even watch in full. I was very saddened. Imran Khan, I request you to take care of Pakistani artists," he concluded.
