Kader Khan designed courses in Islamic studies; Amitabh Bachchan pays tribute

On Twitter Kader Khan Remembered By Amitabh Bachchan Anupam Kher Anees Bazmee As'One Of The Finest Actors Of The Country

Veteran Bollywood actor Kader Khan has died at the age of 81.

Sarfaraz further informed that the last rituals of the deceased actor will be performed in Canada. "Our entire family is here and we live here so we are doing it", Sarfaraz added. World-famous actor Amitabh Bachchan said it's "sad depressing news.my prayers and condolences. a brilliant stage artist a most compassionate and accomplished talent on film".

Kader Khan was suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a degenerative disease that causes loss of balance, difficulty in walking and dementia. While numerous most iconic roles and dialogues of Amitabh were a creation of the terrific Salim-Javed combination, many others were a product of the collaboration between directors Manmohan Desai and Prakash Mehra with Khan.

Born in Afghanistan, Khan debuted on-screen in 1973 with Rajesh Khanna's Daag.

There was scarcely any potboiler from the 1990s that did not feature the actor Khan - "Kishen Kanhaiya", "Bol Radha Bol", "Aankhen", "Coolie No 1", "Hero No 1", "Dulhe Raja", the films were many. His writing career in fact took off much before his acting with the script of Jawani Diwani (1982), for which he earned the measly sum of Rs 1,500. Manmohan Desai would later acknowledge Kader Khan's contribution to his film's success, stating, "I use roadside dialogues because it is easy to follow".

He wrote, "R I P. Kadar bhai Khan sahab!" The duo have appeared in movies like "Mr Natwarlal" & "Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan", and have been close since then.

Khan was suffering from a protracted illness and had been admitted to a hospital in Toronto a few months ago. Big B also shared a throwback picture of the two together. Later, in films like Parvarish, Lootmaar and Qurbani among others, he would establish himself as a villain.

His father's words hit Kader Khan like a sledge-hammer and he immediately enrolled for and completed his MA in Islamic Studies & Arab Literature from Osmania University in 1993. From 1989, the actor was seen in lead comic roles.
