Veteran Pakistani actor, director and producer Abid Ali has passed away, his family has confirmed.

Abid Ali had been ailing from a liver disease for a long time, and was being treated at a private hospital in Karachi. He was 67.

Born Abid Sher Ali in 1952 in Quetta, he worked as an actor, director, and producer, acting in several TV and film productions, Geo News said in a report.

After working at Radio Pakistan, Abid Ali launched a successful career as an actor with the PTV drama 'Jhok Sial' in 1973. But he was perhaps best known for his role as 'Dilawar Khan' in 'Waris', the classic 1979 PTV drama serial, the report added.
