Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday made a call to the ailing TV actor, Firdous Jamal, and assured him to take responsibility for his medical treatment.
The premier reached out to Firdous Jamal, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer and is currently hospitalised for treatment. During the telephonic conversation, PM Sharif inquired about the 68-year-old’s health and assured him of his full support in his hard times.
Expressing hope for a complete recovery, the premier cheered up the actor and said that the whole nation was praying for him.
He also assured Jamal that the state will leave no stone unturned in his treatment, as “emotional touch can bring great comfort to an ailing person.”
Firdous expressed gratitude to the prime minister for the financial and emotional support. Earlier this month, Firdous Jamal’s son confirmed that his father had recently been diagnosed with cancer and was undergoing medical treatment.
