Junaid Akram expressed his grief over the deteriorating condition of his icon Majid Jehangir. He said Jehangir always inspired him to become a comedian. He urged his friends and followers to help Jehangir in the best possible way.

“I had been searching for Majid Jehangir for so long and this is how I’ve found him. He’s been my biggest inspiration in comedy. Seeing my hero in this state makes me feel really sad,” Akram wrote. Majid Jehangir’s half body has been affected by paralysis three years ago. The expensive treatments and daily expenses have dried up his monetary resources.
