Veteran actor Kader Khan passed away at the age of 81. He was in a ventilator in a hospital in Canada for quite some time. His son Sarfaraz confirmed the tragic news that his father is no more. Even as fans, celebs and imminent personalities mourn this great loss to Indian cinema, now is a good time to relive his best works. Taking a look at his illustrious career, here are 5 films featuring the brilliant actor that act as a perfect tribute to the great man.
Kader Khan is a great comedian, there is no doubt in that. But when he teams up with Govinda, a new level of comedic genius is reached. Every 90s kid remembers this comic caper and has many dialogues and by heart to this day. It was almost like the veteran actor was the yin to Govinda's yang, and the whole film was a testament to this fact.
No list praising Kader Khan is complete without this 1989 film. Starring Dharmendra, Jackie Shroff and Dimple Kapadia, the veteran actor was the comic relief in this film. He was really praised for this particular movie and with good reason, there are very few who can keep things as witty and real as Mr Khan.
Although not a very extensive role, the actor was really effective in this Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. The whole movie had an action comedy vibe to it so Kader Khan was right at home in this flick as Commissioner Ram Lal. It is also one of his highest grossing films.
The Govinda and Kader Khan combo worked its magic once again with 'Coolie No 1'. There is something magical about how the two play off of each other on screen, making sure that the audience splits its sides laughing. And as usual, the late actor was pitted against Govinda in the film as Hoshiyar Chand, a greedy man who wants to marry off his daughters to rich families.
This is the only film of the actor post-2004 that is super memorable in everyone's minds. The veteran artist was brilliant as usual in a film that is comedic in nature. He also worked with Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra. Mr Khan played the landlord of Salman and Akshay's character in the film. The film was an even bigger treat for it also featured Amrish Puri.
