#ThrowBackThursday: Pakistan’s finest ‘funny’ men

Safirullah Siddiqui, Umer Sharif, Moin Akhtar and Behroze Sabzwari. Enough said.

June 25, 2014

It can’t get better than having Pakistan’s finest ‘funny’ men all in one frame.  

The guru of many aspiring comedians and actors, Safirullah Siddiqui (Lehri) is seated, as his disciple, Umer Sharif, sits on the floor right next to him. On the left, a slender Moin Akhtar smiles at the camera in his scary get-up.

And last but not the least, with one arm around Akhtar and the other, around Lehri’s, is the still-relevant and versatile actor Behroze Sabzwari. Akhtar and Lehri left us too soon, but their jokes and puns are here to stay.

I think sharma is okay, if you exclude the celebrities from his show his graph will come down from 100 to 30 percent or maybe lesser. I have watched many of his shown but always skipped parts other then the celebrities. Also, he is always repeating same sentences in his show, for example, I am tired of listening when he says to his celebrity guests "you have come a long way in your career, have you ever thought of getting a chance of appearing in Comedy Nights". And then everyone laughs for nothing, it is used 100s of times in his show and it hurts to even think about laughing.

He is a kid as far as comedy is concerned, and his show is a success because of the idea of bringing celebrities to promote their movies, its a unique idea and it clicked, I hope this success doesn't go to his head.
