The New Year certainly began on a sad note with the demise of veteran Bollywood actor, Kader Khan. Khan, who lived in Canada, had been suffering from prolonged illness which eventually resulted in his death.

Upon Kader Khan’s death, a number of condolence and heartfelt messages poured in from the Bollywood fraternity. Govinda, in whose films like Haseena Maan Jayegi, Coolie No 1, Hero No 1 and Dulhe Raja amongst a number of others, Kader Khan, was a regular, expressed his grief saying Khan was like a father figure to him.

However, this statement of Govinda’s has not gone down well with Khan’s son. In a recent interview, Sarfaraz, Kader Khan’s son, commented on Govinda’s statement saying,”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. There are no real feelings for those who have contributed to Indian cinema when they’re no longer active.”

After Kader Khan’s death, Govinda had shared his sentiments saying, “Kader Khan sir is no more with us. He was not just a mentor but also a father figure to me. He had such finesse that whichever artiste he worked with or collaborated with, became a star, in fact a superstar. The entire film industry and my family cannot express the loss in words. I pray to God to grant peace to his soul, and may he find a place in heaven.”
