BAHAWALPUR: Murtaza Hassan alias Mastana, one of the senior-most theatre actors died after a prolonged illness in Bahawalpur on Monday.
Mastana had been suffering from Hepatitis C for the last four years, and was being treated at Victoria Hospital.
The family had earlier appealed to the authorities to help them recover his property from illegal occupants so that they can sell some of it and use the money for his treatment.
Mastana had stopped working for theatre in Lahore and shifted to his home town in Bahawalpur four years ago. The late comedian had acted in more than 2,000 stage and Television dramas.
He will be buried in Noor-shah bukhari graveyard in Bahawalpur after Maghrib prayers.
