An old video of a young Moin Akhtar performing his comedy routine resurfaced on social media. The clip appears to be from a variety show held in honor of defense day hosted by the legendary Zia Mohyeddin.
It is also considered Akhtar's debut on television with him being in his teens when the video aired. In the clip Akhtar, after a thorough introduction by Mohyeddin, goes on to perform a standup routine which he starts off by doing an impression of women fixing their hair.

Fans of the late comedian were delighted to catch a glimpse of his early days.
