Veteran Pakistani television actor, director and producer, Abid Ali passed away on Thursday. He was 67. 

Abid Ali had been ailing from a liver disease for a long time, and was being treated at a private hospital in Karachi. His wife Rabia Abid Ali and daughter Rahma Ali confirmed his death. 

Born Abid Sher Ali in 1952 in Quetta, he worked as an actor, director, and producer, acting in several TV and film productions. After working at Radio Pakistan, Abid Ali launched a successful career as an actor with the PTV drama Jhok Sial in 1973. But he was perhaps best known for his role as Dilawar Khan in Waris, the classic 1979 PTV drama serial. 

He was the director and producer of Dasht, a 1993 hit drama in which he also played the role of Shams Shah. Abid Ali is the recipient of the prestigious Pride of Performance. He has three daughters, including renowned model and actress Iman Aly and singer Rahma Ali. His daughter, Rahma, also later confirmed her father’s death in a message posted on her Instagram account.

إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ . Words cannot express the deep sorrow I feel on your passing. I am numbed and in disbelief. You have been kind, patient, encouraging. You’ve been so much more than a mentor, and inspiration, a guide, a legend, a senior. You have been a friend. The world will remember you as Abid Ali Saab, the greatest of us. For me, you will always be my Agha Jaan. . Farewell you lovely man. May you shine on brighter in heaven insha Allah. It has been the honour of my life to have worked alongside you, and to have been in your company. You will be missed. May Allah grant you the highest place in Jannah, ameen. #gonetosoon #abidali #aghajaan 😔
