KARACHI, Nov 17: Veteran television actor Shafi Mohammad Shah died peacefully in his sleep at his Clifton home on Saturday evening. He was 58.

Mr Shah, who leaves behind his widow, four daughters and a son, suffered from a liver condition. His death is being attributed to liver failure.

Born in Kandiaro, he had his early education in Hyderabad. He obtained a postgraduate degree from the University of Sindh.

Mr Shah honed his acting skills by taking part in plays broadcast by the Hyderabad radio station. He later moved to Karachi and performed in over 500 television dramas in the Urdu and Sindhi languages.

PTV play “Urta Asman,” directed by late Shahzad Khalil, had his debut performance. He earned accolades for his acting skills in many plays, especially “Chand Girahan”, “Dairey”, “Aanch”, “Bund Gulab” and “Mohabbat Khawab Ki Surat”.

In spite of the fact that he essentially remained a television artist – appearing also in numerous private productions – he also performed in movies, such as “Biwi Ho To Aisi”, “Talash”, “Rubi”, “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”.

His funeral prayers will be held at Imambargah Yasreb in Defence after Zohrain. He will be buried in the Defence graveyard.
