Vasay Chaudhry ‘appalled’ to see use of smatphones at Amanullah’s funeral
Famous comedian Amanullah has just passed away in Lahore on Friday. The 70-year-old actor was suffering from kidney and respiratory diseases in Bahria Hospital Lahore.
Amanullah had spent more than 15 days in the hospital due to his diseases a few months ago, however, he was discharged later. He was again admitted to the hospital due to pneumonia in January. The comedian had received treatment at the hospital for months but soon after reaching home, he was brought back to the hospital as his health worsened.
Since he was such a pivotal fragment of the entertainment industry, his family was accompanied by some celebrities at the funeral prayers. Likewise, Vasay Chaudhry was also present at the funeral. Following the actor’s funeral, Vasay took to Twitter to express disgust over the blatant exploitation of the deceased by the unethical usage of smartphones to take photos and videos of late Amanullah.
He wrote, “At the funeral of aman ullah sb, It was appalling to see the number of people just trying to make a video clip of the “maiyat” rather then recite something. To hell with these mobile phone cameras!”

Amanullah was known as the ultimate king of stand-up comedy. Not only has he influenced abundant actors with his unmatchable wit, but he also keeps a world record of 860-day-night theatre plays.
