    In the video, a visibly emotional Sharif can be seen talking to his unconscious wife in a London hospital before his return to Pakistan on July 12 to serve his 11-year jail term.

    "Open your eyes, Kulsoom," he is heard pleading to her.

    Ahead of his departure from London, Sharif had said his wife finally opened her eyes for a few seconds - something he had revealed a day prior that he wished for.

    He, however, regretted having to leave her in such state to return to the country.
    At that time, he had said that he was leaving behind his ailing wife in Allah's protection and returning to Pakistan regardless of whether he was "taken to prison or gallows".
