Veteran Actor Yusuf Hussain Dies Of COVID Aged 73

Veteran film and TV actor Yusuf Hussain died of COVID-19 at the age of 73 on Saturday.

As being reported he was being treated at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital, where he breathed his last this morning.

His son-in-law and filmmaker Hansal Mehta confirmed while talking to the news agency PTI.

Later he paid tribute to his father-in-law in a social media post saying that Yusuf Hussain was like a father to him.

Sharing a photo of Yusuf Hussain, he wrote about how the late actor helped him to complete his 2012 film Shahid, featuring Rajkummar Rao, when he was “troubled” and his “non-existent career as a filmmaker was almost finished completely.”

Hansal Mehta wrote: “I had completed 2 schedules of Shahid. And we were stuck. I was troubled. A non-existent career as a filmmaker was almost finished completely. He just came up to me and said I have a fixed deposit and it is of no use to me if you are so troubled. He wrote a cheque. Shahid was completed. That was Yusuf Husain. Not my father-in-law but a father.”

He added: “He was life – if life itself had to have a physical form. Today he is gone. To remind all those women in heaven that they are ‘Duniya ki sabse khubsurat ladki‘ and all the men that they are ‘Haseen naujwaan‘. And then to end with a booming ‘love you love you love you’. Yusuf Saab I owe this new life to you. I am truly orphaned today. Life will never be the same. I will miss you terribly. My Urdu will remain broken. And yes – love you love you love you!”

 

Yusuf Hussain worked in films like Dil Chahta Hai, Raaz, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Khakhee, Dhoom, Vivah, Shahid, OMG, Krrish 3, Raees, Vishwaroopam 2, Dabangg 3, and Darbar.
