Chaudhry thanked fans for supporting him as the host for 7 years and 10 months, making it clear that the departure was not the end of his journey, as there was more to come.
“After 1235 shows,7 years & 10 months, 2500 plus guests.. my journey with MAZAQRAAT comes to an End.I would like to thank ALL the guests who gave me the honour of interviewing them. Amazing Talent that I got to work with like Aman ullah Khan ( late) , Mohsin Abbas,Aun ali khan,Sakhawat Naz, chand Baral, akram Uddas, Aima Baig, Hina Niazi, Hiba,Rukhma and Ayesha. All the team that was behind the camera, especially Sanwal ( late), haseeb and Tayyab.
I will always be indebted to Mian Amir Mahmood Sb ( chairman Dunya Tv ) for not even ONCE telling me how to do the show or interfering in the slightest possible way.
It would never have been possible without our viewers. Wherever Urdu and Punjabi could be understood they sent us their love ,no matter which country they were in. THANK YOUUU.This show would always be super special to me because it was liked by my late father as well.So many guests that are not in this world today, and they gave me so so many memories to cherish.
We always tried to make it a family show for the South Asian audiences. A show that you could enjoy with the whole family. At times, we might have failed, BUT the intention was always positive and clean.
I would also like to wish Luck to who so ever that comes in after me. Please show the same love and admiration that you showed me. We all just try to entertain you.”
Long time fans praised the actor’s skills in the comments, stating that they would miss seeing him on the iconic comedy show.
