Veteran Indian actor Kader Khan dies at 81

The last rites will be performed in Canada, his son Sarfaraz has confirmed. We hope that the actor's soul rests in peace. Initially wary of the literal translations of dialogues in remakes, he was eventually persuaded, with guarantees of no interference, to write the dialogues for "Meri Awaaz Suno" in 1981 followed by "Himmatwala" and many more remakes of Telugu and Tamil films like "Justice Chowdhary", "Mawali" and "Maqsad".

"Kader Khan. actor writer of enormous talent. lies ill in Hospital".

Khan had an illustrious career in Bollywood with his talents spanning not only acting and writing but directing and comedic acts too. He entertained his audience with a number of comedy hits like Dulhe Raja, Coolie No.1, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Raja Babu, Saajan Chale Sasural, Aunty No.1 and others.

Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan quoted a tweet from one his fans on Twitter, who posted an old picture of both the actors and wrote, "Prayers and duas".

Actor Arjun Kapoor described Kader Khan as "an actor and a writer who defined a generation". Before entering the Bollywood in the early 70s, he was a professor of Civil Engineering at a college in Mumbai.

Kader Khan was suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a degenerative disease that causes loss of balance, difficulty in walking and dementia. Of all the dialogue writers I've worked with, Kader Khan is easily the best. He had been staying in Canada, where his son Sarfaraz lives, and had some time back, reportedly taken Canadian citizenship.
