Veteran actor Bushra Ansari appeared on Waseem Badami’s show Har Lamha Purjosh on which she made some revelations about her sister Sumbal’s death.

Bushra revealed that they still haven’t informed their mother about Sumbal’s death because she is too old, she might not be able to handle the truth. She also mentioned that they have told their mother that Sumbal is in America and the Mera Naseeb actor often pretends to be Sumbal and talks to their mother on the phone.

Pakistan’s veteran actress Sumbal Shahid passed away due to Covid-19. According to the Pardes star, Sumbal tested covid positive, and was undergoing treatment in a hospital in Lahore where she was placed on a ventilator.


The star graced in many dramas like Malika-e-Aliya, Ishqaaway and Takay Ki Ayegi Baraat.

She was best known for her work in Golden Girls and was widely popular for her role in Dolly Ki Ayegi Baraat.

Her last appearance was in the drama Nand with Shahroz Shabzwari and Minal Khan.


It is pertinent to mention that Sumbul’s son Shiraz too passed away a year ago in a paragliding accident in Chitral. 

Earlier in July 2021, she took to Instagram to share her response on the backlash from netizens over dancing with Azaan Sami Khan at a wedding, “I was in a deep grief from last 3 months and that loss is going to be in our hearts till our last breathe. Two days ago it was a family dholki and all my friends were there insisting me to get out of the stress and my sadness.”

The Biquis Kaur star added, “But sad to see people’s reaction, they just want to see us unhappy because we are famous and specially when somebody is over a certain age, how pathetic. I am telling you this is the best age to enjoy life when you are done with all your duties and Alhamdullillah I have achieved so much in this age I don’t have any regrets if I am over 60”.

She continued by mentioning, “So this is a cheap weapon of telling elders that you are old and you have no right to be happy, why not ? I don’t understand why young kids feel insecure of older people,” the actress stated further. I m not answerable to any faceless troll because they never leave any one even after wearing hijab, so stop hurting people it’s also not allowed in Islam.
