My mother always wanted to see me in the army uniform and I got to do that the very first time in Wilco. Salute, love and prayers for our armed forces who are not afraid to sacrifice their lives to protect ours. May Allah bless our martyrs, may He guard our soldiers.

Saeed’s post received comments from a bevy of his fans and contemporaries alike. He captioned the post, “My mother always wanted to see me in the army uniform and I got to do that the very first time in Wilco,” while expressing his heartfelt admiration for those who have served Pakistan with utmost determination and continue to do so. “Salute, love and prayers for our armed forces who are not afraid to sacrifice their lives to protect ours. May Allah bless our martyrs, may He guard our soldiers. Pakistan Zindabad,” he added.
Earlier, the actor-producer expressed his eagerness for the production of TV dramas which are based on Islamic history. However, he remained confident that it cannot be possible without the support of the government. Talking to Samaa TV, he said, “I could produce it but the problem is that shows [like Erturgrul] require massive financial investments. They made Ertugrul with the Turkish government’s financial aid. If our government supports me or any other capable producer, we could do it as well.” Saeed’s last outing Meray Paas Tum Ho proved to be fruitful. Starring Ayeza khan and Adnan Siddiqui, it was a delight to watch!
