The actor’s luck turned harsh on him when his eldest son Ali Ayaz Fakhri went missing in America for almost two years. The trauma, the pain he suffered in that time of uncertainty resulted in aggravating him ailments. Some months back, when media took the issue, Pakistani government engaged the US authorities to search the missing Pakistani, but all efforts resulted in a bad news that Fakhri’s son was killed in a road accident after a day he went missing. The actor could not recover after the news of his son’s death and with the passage of time, Fakhri’s health kept on deteriorating. He was shifted to Mayo Hospital for treatment. Owing to his health condition, the doctors kept him on ventilators, but he could not recover and succumbed to ailments.
A couple of days back, Chief Minister Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif had directed the Mayo Hospital authorities to conduct treatment of the legendary actor with utmost care. The medical superintendent of the hospital was also directed for treating Fakhri on government expenditure.
