The first death anniversary of famous veteran actor Abid Ali was observed Saturday. 

Abid was born in Quetta on March 29, 1952. Inclined towards performing arts, he joined Radio Pakistan Quetta for a brief period. He then shifted to Lahore to try his luck on television.

Ali went on to work in a number of noteworthy plays such as Waris, Khwahish and Suraj Ke Sath Sath. He also ventured into production and direction with the play, Dasht, which gained tremendous popularity.

He was the director and producer of 'Dasht', a 1993 hit drama in which he also played the role of 'Shams Shah'.

Despite a successful transition from the PTV era to private productions and films, his personal life was beset by turbulence. He married twice.

His daughters Iman Ali and Rahma Ali found success in modelling-acting and singing respectively while his third daughter prefers to stay away from the limelight.

He was last seen in film Heer Maan Ja alongside Ali Rehman Khan and Hareem Farooq.

The legend has worked in a number of television dramas and movies. He was honoured with the Pride of Performance in 1985. He was also given the Presidential Award.

Sadly, the legendary actor lost the battle against illness and passed away last year at the age of 67. But, his legacy will remain alive forever.
