UPDATE ON KADER KHAN'S HEALTH: Son Sarfraz Speaks From Canada

We got a call last night from Kader Khan's elder son in Canada. "This is Sarfraz speaking and I am Kader Khan's son," the voice at the other end identified himself.

"I have called to talk about my father. People have been calling us after you guys broke the story about he barely able to walk," he began.

Sarfraz continued, "Yes, my dad is facing difficulty in walking. We have to provide him support from both sides. After a few steps, he demands that he wants to sit again. He is scared that he will fall."

Recently Hogaya Dimaagh Ka Dahi (where KK was seen in an important portrayal) producer Fauzia Arshi has been talking on behalf of Kader saab and this has not gone well with Kader saab's family members. Anyway.

Talking further, Sarfraz recounted the knee surgery which Kader saab had a few years ago. He explained, "The surgery did not go wrong. It was just that my father refused to get up afte the surgery. We were told that he has to make an effort and try to start walking from the next day. He just didn't do that and...," he trailed off.

"But I must say that he is otherwise absolutely okay. There is nothing to worry about. He is leading a very happy and luxurious life with me, my wife and our kids," he quickly added.

Any chances of Kader saab returning to India and doing a film or two, we asked? "My father is a Canadian citizen and he is being well- looked-after in Canada. Inshallah, we will definitely come for few days- but I don't think that he'll do any film hereafter. He was quite disillusioned with the industry and took a step back, long ago."



What was Kader saab disillusionment about, we asked? "Well, the industry started functioning quite differently. The corporates came in, dosti-yaari sab khatam ho gayi, and it was just kaam se kaam. This put him off completely. Many of his well-wishers reasoned with him- but he was adamant."

And how is Kader saab's memory? Does he remember his friends- Govinda and Shakti Kapoor? "It's fine. He does remember them," and then Sarfraz  concluded to say, "Lekin haan, bolne mein woh aajkal bahut slow bolte hain."
