The funeral is slated to take place in Bangalore today at 5 pm. Members of the Indian film industry are slated to gather at Khan’s farmhouse in Bangalore to pay their respects.
Khan made his debut in film Didi in 1960. However, he has been most known for his film Qurbani and Jaanbaz. Khan’s last film as an actor was Aneez Bazmee’s Welcome. Khan starred in a total of 47 films.

The Directorate of Film Festivals has expressed deep condolence on the demise of actor-producer-director.
In his death, the Hindi film industry has lost a rare actor who believed in re-inventing himself as he also forayed into direction, production and editing. During his lifetime, he directed seven films, produced six and was the film editor for two films.
He is survived by his wife Sundari, son and daughter-in-law Fardeen Khan and Natasha and daughter Laila.
