Later on, the actor-cum-singer posted a series of messages featuring various legends of Pakistan from various fields including cricketing and entertainment legends.
Saeed started the trend with veteran actor Qavi Khan. He said, “Anyone who has worked with Qavi Sahab would know his demeanor only commands the utmost respect. He is an institution. For his exemplary body of work he has recently been decorated with a Pride of Performance by the Government of Pakistan.”
The Tich Button actor then paid homage to the woman with a magical voice, Abida Parveen who is “globally recognized as an iconic representation of the Sufi genre. Her soul-stirring voice and melodies have long had listeners across the globe in absolute awe.”
He then paid a rich tribute to the comedy king in Pakistan-Umar Sharif in a heart-touching post. He penned, “I have and will always be a big, big fan of the legendary Umer Sharif Sahab – both on and off-screen.”

I have and will always be a big, big fan of the legendary Umer Sharif sahab – both on and off screen. An absolute showman for whom no specific place or audience is required to exhibit his versatility of his craft. He will undoubted have you laughing hysterically, anywhere and everywhere you meet him. His humble nature however supercedes even his immense talent. I was with him at an airport once when he wasn't feeling too well. A group of fans approached us for a photographs and he very graciously, instantly obliged. He not took photographs with them but also shared a few laughs and thanked them for appreciating his work. I cant forget his very gracious advice: "Yeh log hain, tou hum hain – inko kabhi inkaar nahi karna". His words have since been etched in my memory. I have toured India multiple times and if there is one ambassador of Pakistani culture and talent across the border, it is none other than Umer sahab. His humor undoubtedly transcends boundaries. I've had countless fans across the border asking me to convey to him their messages of love, respect and admiration. His services to Pakistan and his legacy are unmatched. No amount of gratitude will ever be enough to thank him but this is a small token of appreciation from all of us. Celebrate the legend that is Umer Sharif by sharing across your social media platforms your tribute to his greatness. We pray his guidance and support stays with us and Allah keep him in good health. #umersharif #LivingLegends #PakistaniHeroes
Following Umar Sharif, Farhan Saeed then paid tribute to the cricketing legend to Javed Miandad who played an integral role in the 1992 World Cup win. “The magic of Javed sahab’s last-ball six against arch-rivals India in Sharjah still lives on. An integral part of Pakistan’s World Cup-winning squad of 1992 – words aren’t enough to describe the glory his career has brought to Pakistan,” the singer wrote.
