Veteran actor Feroz Khan is remembered for his impeccable style and screen presence. Aiken, who died on this day in 2009, was known for his Bayab Rai and films that broke the mold. As we remember the late actor on his death anniversary today, we take a look at how he reacted to Casanova’s image of son Fardeen Khan earlier in the day, and he had an equation with star Mumtaz.
In an interview, a part of Aman’s Asha documentary aired on Pakistan’s Geo News in the early 2000s, Feroze opened up about the public image of son Fardeen. Fardeen made his acting debut with the film Prem Agan (1998), directed by Feroze.
“Fardeen is a beautiful boy and has millions of fans. Regarding his Casanova image, even his father had the same image, and so he does. When an actor starts doing good work, he becomes quite popular with fans. Fardeen has a worldwide fan following. I am so happy for her. He is now settled and is married to a very nice girl (Natasha Madhwani), ”said Feroz Khan.
Fardeen married Natasha in 2005. Natasha is the daughter of Mumtaz, with whom Feroz had an onscreen pair. In the same interview, Feroz Khan stated, “Mumtaz has been my favorite actress. We have worked together in 6 films. I was the one who took Mumtaz to foreign Germany, where I raced F1 racing in 1971 in Nürburgring. “
In a career spanning over five decades, Feroz Khan has been a part of many memorable films, including Aam Aadmi and Insa, Khote Sikke, Qurbani, Naagin and others. She later also acted in films like Ek Khiladi Ek Hasina and Welcome, which later became her last onscreen appearance.
Known for giving hit songs in almost all his titles, Feroze said, “All my songs have always been hits, such as Qurbani, Dharmatma, Aaprad, Dayawan. It’s a part of the game.”
A filmmaker, Firoz called the medium of cinema a platform of entertainment.
“Cinema is an entertainment. We are not reformers. If we look at improvement through cinema, people will get bored. But around that entertainment, we also need to say good things, provide some message through cinema. It is very important for cinema to give a message of compassion and humanity. No other nation can dominate us. India has manpower, brains, technicians, scientists, doctors. You name it and we them. Even America invites our experts to NASA, ”he said. Feroz Khan died on 27 April 2009 due to lung cancer. He was 69.
