Shakti Kapoor: ‘Kader Khan Was Alone For The Last Decade, Nobody From Bollywood Bothered to Visit And Now They Are Talking’

Shakti Kapoor is in pain as he lost a good friend of him fro the industry. Yes, we are talking about Kader Khan. Shakti Kapoor and Kader Khan did more than 100 films together. Kader Khan’s most successful collaborations were with Govinda and Shakti Kapoor.
From Raja Babu to Coolie No 1 and Sajan Chale Sasural, the trio literally ruled the comic scene in the era of 90s.

Shakti Kapoor, after knowing that Kader Khan has left the world, said that,

“In an industry where posters only have the lead actor and actress, there were banners of just Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor promoting the films. This has never happened in the history of the Hindi film industry. There was the combination of Mehmood and Kishore Kumar but these actors have not done 100 films together and neither did they play father and son, like we did.”

He further talked about his relationship with Kader Khan, he said,

“I learnt a lot from him and I will miss him a lot. He once told me that his acting career began as a theatre artist. He was a professor in a college and would come up with dialogues while riding the scooter. His assistant, who would be riding pillion, would write them down. I always told him that he was my guru; I used to touch his feet. We were the best of friends. I would never leave him alone for a moment when we were together and not shooting because there was so much to learn.”

He also spoke at length about how lonely Khan was in his last days and how no one from the industry cared.

“I have spent half my acting career with Kader Khan – we did over 100 films together, the maximum any two co-stars have done together. Now that he is gone, the film industry has been thinking about him. Why do people remember an actor when they are not alive? Why can’t they say something nice when the person is working or when they are sick or when they are struggling? They only start talking about an actor when they are no more and they are not around to hear it all.”

He went on to say,

“When Kader Khan was not working for the last decade and was suffering, nobody was very concerned about him. Why was he left so lonely? And why are actors left so alone when they are sick or not doing too well? Kader Khan was financially very secure but very lonely because when he was sick, not many people visited him or spent time with him. He was left alone with his family.”
