Whenever anyone will ask the name of one Pakistani actor who is not only acclaimed in Pakistan but is also celebrated across the world, we could just think of Humayun Saeed instantly. The legendary actor has given his best performances in dramas and movies alike. The movies he works in, become the highest-grossing flicks of the entire country for obvious reasons. Likewise, his ‘Meray Paas Tum Ho’ is considered one of the best Pakistani dramas ever made.
Here’s congratulating our very own Danish on achieving such a huge milestone.
