He has worked in dramas, films and countless theatre plays and he is an intellectual and serious artist who everybody loves to listen to. He has travelled all over the world and always has beautiful stories to share. He was a guest on Alief Network and saw the miracle he saw himself while standing in Haram Shareef.
