Prominent Pakistani celebrities including, Humayun Saeed, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ushna Shah, Veena Malik and others paid tribute to Sadpara.
Earlier, singer and actor Ali Zafar has paid an emotional-musical tribute to Sadpara, with song Paharon Ki Qasam,originally sung by Kamal Masood. The music video featured a series of shots of Sadpara, and the glorious mountains he climbed in his life.
