– Farooq Zameer is no more! One of the finest finest actors from Pakistan. Im not sure but read years back that Salman Khan was his fan too.

In his demeanour, in his dialogue delivery, in his body language, Farooq Zameer embodied calm. A nuanced gem. Rest in peace and thank you.

A true performer. I once saw a stage play which included just him. A one man cast. He was equally good in English and Urdu plays. RIP. https://t.co/AyDcUcPsTN
