The Bulbulay star requested his fans for prayers and asured them that he is doing very well. He urged people to verify the source of such news before circulating it on social media, as it can be a matter of distress for those related to him.
His co-star Ayesha Omer reacted to the news and wrote, “Nahin bhai hamaray Mahmood Sahab bilkul Sahee Salamat hain. May Allah always protect you Moodi Uncle.”
Spreading such fake news can cause distress. People must refrain from spreading fake news and must verify the news before posting it.
