I just heard the news and I can barely believe it at the moment. This is a great loss for the industry as well as humanity. There are so many memories associated with Qazi bhai, but the one thing I always admired about him was his dedication to the profession. When he was on set for a recording, the only thing in front of him was his script and he would not participate in any other banter during that time,”

HE WAS ONE OF THE FINEST ACTORS OF PAKISTAN

Qazi Wajid would no longer be amongst us all but his memories and performances will always be a part of the Pakistani media industry. His illusions on the television and radio will be missed but his legacy would continue to rule our hearts and minds. Mr. Wajid’s amazing journey would never be an old history for any of his fans and followers yet it would teach a lesson to many out there of how to rule people’s hearts from across the screen. May his soul rest in peace and be granted the highest of the ranks in heaven. If you liked this article then like, share and comment down below to give us your feedback.
