Ary news reported that Sindh miister Nisar Khuhro had taken notice of the incident and ordered inquiry into it. The matter was also brought to the notice of Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique, by the news channel.

Chand Nawab got fame when his reporting video near a railway platform went viral on social media, in Dec 2008.

In the recently released Bollywood blockbuster movie Bajrangi Bhaijan, actor Nawazuddin Siddqui had re-enacted Nawab's hilarious way of reporting, in an exact replication of his viral video.

Nawab was in news in Aug 2015, when he had allegedly slapped a kid when he entered into his camera frame.

Nawab's wife Iffat, who was a doctor, passed away last year.
