From Khuda Ki Basti, Tanhaiyaan to Dhoop Kinaray, Qazi Sahab has been a part of projects which will always remain in our hearts. He was born in 1930 in Lahore and after giving about five decades of his life to the media industry, Qazi Wajid left this mortal world at the age of 87 years after having the complaint of heart palpitations during the night.
Showbiz fraternity came together to mourn the loss of a legendary TV actor. Syed Noor, Mahira Khan, Armeena Khan, Javed Sheikh, Faysal Qureshi and many others remembered Wajid as a powerhouse of an actor and a talent institute on his own.
Talking to APP, veteran actor-director, Noor called Wajid an educational institute for new artists. He went on to add that the actor’s death deprived artists of a great teacher. Sheikh, on the other hand, called Wajid an artist who was true to his characters.
Many actors took to social media to express their feelings.
