How Kader Khan lost work for not calling Amitabh Bachchan 'sirji'Twitter

Kader Khan's death came as a big loss for the industry and the nation. Amitabh Bachchan was one of the first to express grief at the legendary actor's demise, stating that he was the one who wrote dialogues for most of Big B's hit movies. However, an old video has come up that shows Kader Khan saying that he lost work for refusing to address Amitabh as "sirji".

After the death of Khan, one of his old interviews surfaced on social media, in which the late actor is seen narrating how he lost connection with Bachchan, and eventually work, for refusing to address him as "sirji".

In the video, Khan said that he used to call Bachchan as Amit, but he was asked by a producer to address him as "sirji". Khan said that while most people in the industry had started addressing Bachchan as "sirji", he refused to do so as for him Bachchan was like a friend.

He further said that because he refused to address him as "sirji", Khan lost touch with Bachchan, and could not write dialogues for some of his films.

This is quite shocking to see because Khan has always been one of the most loved Bollywood actors, who always stayed away from any controversy.

He died on January 1 at the age of 81 after prolonged illness. Series of comments had poured in on social media, expressing sadness at the demise of the iconic actor and writer.

Amitabh too had mourned his death by a tweet that read, "Kadar Khan passes away .. sad depressing news .. my prayers and condolences .. a brilliant stage artist a most compassionate and accomplished talent on film .. a writer of eminence ; in most of my very successful films .. a delightful company .. and a mathematician !!
