Veteran actor Kader Khan breathed his last on 31st December after prolonged illness. Kader Khan was known for his versatile roles and impeccable comic timing. He was not only a brilliant actor but also a writer. Several from film industry expressed grief over his demise and also attended the condolence meet to pay their last respect to the actor.
However, Bollywood biggies didn't care to call him once during his ill-health. Son Sarfaraz Khan is upset with the way Hindi film industry has responded to the news of Kader Khan's demise.
"There are so many people in the film industry whom my father was close to. But the one person that my father loved the most was Bachchan saab (Amitabh Bachchan). I'd ask my father whom he missed the most from the film industry and the answer promptly would be Bachchan Saab. And I know the love was mutual. I want Bachchan saab to know that my father spoke about him till the end," said the doting son emotionally.
Shakti Kapoor, David Dhawan and Govinda were others who worked very closely with Kader Khan during the 1980s and 1990s. Govinda has gone on record to say Kader Khan was like a father figure to him. Sarfaraz laughed mirthlessly, and said: "Please ask Govinda how many times he inquired about his father figure's health. Has he even bothered to call us even once after my father's passing away? This is the way our film industry has become.
