Legendary comedian and actor Ismail Tara passed away in Karachi on Thursday evening after suffering from kidney problems. He was 73. 

His funeral prayer was offered in Karachi in which a large number of his fans and people from the industry participated.

The entertainment fraternity in particular has been mourning Tara’s passing since news of his demise surfaced on Thursday evening. Veteran actors like Jawed Sheikh, Bushra Ansari and others reminisced how Tara was not only an exceptional actor with an excellent work ethic but also a jolly, fun-loving individual, admired by plenty in private.

"It is a tragic news for me and I have no words to express my sorrow over the death of Ismail Tara,” veteran actor Bushra Ansari told The Express Tribune. “It is a painful time for me as our colleagues in the industry have started leaving one by one. But every one has to die some day,” Ansari lamented.

Adnan Siddiqui remembered Tara as a “veteran in every sense of the word.” He tweeted, “Ismail Tara sahab redefined comedy with his trendsetter Fifty Fifty. The nation will remember you for making them smile through the 80s and beyond. May Allah grant you higher place in Jannah.”

Saba Qamar also fell short of words to express her grief. “Sad to know about demise of our legend star Ismail Tara. My deepest condolences to his family,” she shared on Twitter.
