Bollywood actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha paid tribute and recognized the contributions of actor Kader Khan. He also raised some serious questions regarding the care of old artists in India. He urged everyone to take better care of artistes so that they don’t feel neglected.
“Why was he in Canada during the time of his death? Kader Khan has given so much to our entertainment industry…What a sad start to 2019. There is a lesson to be learnt from Kader Khan’s death in a foreign country. We need to take better care of our artistes so that they don’t feel neglected,” he said.
Bollywood Veteran actor Kader Khan passed away on Tuesday (Jan 1) morning in Canada. He was 81. Kader Khan’s son Sarfaraz Khan confirmed the news to local media. He said, “Yes, my dad has left us this morning. He was unwell from last few months and in the hospital from last few days. We tried everything we could, but it was time. He was a very loving man and he loved everyone who was a part of his life.”
He added: “Kader Khan was one of the pillars of Bollywood. He was not just an excellent actor who fitted into any role, but also an outstanding writer. Both Amitabh (Bachchan) and I were very closely associated with him. I knew him from the time he wrote Manmohan Desai’s Naseeb and Prakash Mehra’s Jwalamukhi, both of which I starred in. ‘Whenever I met him he regaled me with his intellectual mind and deep study of commercial Indian cinema. I don’t think there can be another Kader Khan ever.”
