Punjabi actor Gippy Grewal is presently on a visit to Pakistan. On Tuesday, 21 January, Grewal went to his ancestral village at Chak 47 Mansoora near Faisalabad in Pakistan.
He tweeted a video of himself holding the hand of an elderly resident who guided him to the Grewal family’s ancestral home in the village. The resident, reportedly called Muhammad Anwar, is said to be a contemporary of Gippy Grewal’s grandfather.

Grewal also said in his tweet, “Thank you so much the people of my village Chak 47 Mansoora. I can never repay the love you gave me.”
A resident of Chak 47 Mansoora, Shahid Hussain told Dawn that Grewal’s grandfather was the numberdar of this village before the Partition.
Hussain said Grewal stayed at the village for half-an-hour or so.
“I visited Nankana Sahib and my ancestral place at Faisalabad and I am feeling great while visiting Pakistan...I will come with my family next time,” Grewal said in an interview to a Pakistani channel.
Several Pakistanis tweeted welcoming Grewal to the area.
