On Kader Khan’s death, Shatrughan Sinha says don’t make artistes feel neglected
Veteran actor and multi-talented personality Kader Khan, left for the heavenly abode yesterday. The 81-year-old actor breathed his last in a Canada hospital as he was put on a BiPaP ventilator a few days back. Since last few years, the veteran actor has not been keeping well.
As soon as news of Kader Khan’s death broke out, the entire film industry came forward and remembered the legendary actor. Some of them even paid tribute to the late actor on various social media platforms. Shatrughan Sinha, recently speaking on Kader Khan’s death, said we should take some lessons from his death in the foreign land.
Questioning the way artists are treated, Shatrughan told IANS, “Why was he (Kader) in Canada during the time of his death? Kader Khan has given so much to our Entertainment industry…What a sad start to 2019. We need to take better care of our artists so that they don’t feel neglected.”
Sinha went on to add that Kader Khan was one of the pillars of Bollywood, who was not just an excellent actor but an outstanding writer as well. The actor further added, “Both Amitabh 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.”
Well, we completely agree with Shatrughan Sinha as we all know that there would never be another Kader Khan in Bollywood ever.
