Journalist Imran Aslam Passes Away At 70 In Karachi
According to a source, the veteran Imran Aslam had been ill for some time and was receiving care at a hospital in Karachi.
The chairman of the Geo and Jang Group and a seasoned journalist named Imran Aslam recently died on Friday in Karachi. He was 70.
According to a news report, Aslam had been ill for some time and was receiving medical treatment at a nearby hospital.
Aslam’s three-decade-long career was filled with notable successes as a journalist, screenwriter, actor, voice actor, TV network head, and all-around visionary.
He socialised with influential political figures, planned shocking news items, and collaborated with seasoned members of the entertainment sector on screenplays and show plans for their productions.
Imran’s 36-year work has been distinguished, it appears, only by significant successes. He has worked as a journalist, scriptwriter, voice actor, TV network president, and all-around visionary. He has mingled with influential political figures, arranged shocking news stories, collaborated with renowned entertainment industry professionals, writing their scripts and developing their shows, and he has always been one of those tireless thinkers who have propelled Pakistan’s entertainment and journalism to where it is today.
Imran came up with the idea for “Mujhe Tuc Tuc ke saath chahiye” while he was unemployed and penned a few jingles for some extra cash. His commercial jingles have become ingrained in local pop culture. Naturally, he has held the position of president of Geo Network, the nation’s biggest television network, since the platform’s founding.
Aslam Azhar, Shoaib Hashmi, Sarmad Sehbai, Rahat Kazmi, Saira Kazmi, Sheema Kermani, Yasmeen Ismail, Faiza Kazi, Khaled Anum, and Shahzad Khalil are just a few of the top names Imran has collaborated with in the local entertainment world.
Upon hearing of Aslam’s passing, other journalists, lawmakers, and members of society also expressed their sorrow.
Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, expressed his sorrow over Aslam’s passing and offered prayers for his soul. He claimed that the journalist’s contributions to Pakistan would live on in memory.
Saddened by the passing of veteran journalist and president of Geo TV Imran Aslam. He belonged to a breed of journalists who made eminent contribution to the development of Pakistani journalism. I extend my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends & colleagues.
