LAHORE: Veteran Pakistan actor Sajid Hasan on Sunday shared his dreadful experience of a recently done hair transplant going wrong.
In a video message, Sajid shows a harrowing open wound on his scalp as result of a poorly executed hair transplant done by one of his acquaintance, who also happens to be a medical doctor.
Sajid said that the doctor had, for a long time, been asking him to get a hair treatment. He finally accepted the plea two months ago, but it turned out to be disastrous for the 59-year-old.
The actor stated that no medical tests were conducted prior to the surgery and that a few days after the treatment started, he started to feel ill. The doctor, however, assured him that ‘all is ok.’

Sajid added that his injury has been causing all sorts of problems in his personal and professional life. “I am suffering a lot, for doctor’s negligence and not cleaning the wound properly. So is my family. I have been facing extreme problems for the last two months and had to suffer professionally too,” he said.
Twitter responds to Sajid Hasan’s ordeal
Users on Twitter have wished Sajid a speedy recovery, while some have expressed concern over the incident.
Some also criticised the veteran actor for a lack of research and consultancy before he made such a move.
Sajid pointed out in the concluding remarks of his video that “go to the right surgeon and do a lot of research beforehand. This (bows his head to show wounds) is what happens when you go to the wrong guy”.
