Veteran Bollywood actor Kader Khan, who has been missing from the film industry for a while, will soon be seen on the 75 mm screen. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has worked with Kader Khan in several movies, confirmed the news on Twitter.
"Kader Khan... great colleague, writer, contributor to many of my successful films... returns to film after a long hiatus! Welcome," Amitabh tweeted on Sunday.
Big B didn't reveal the name of the "Raja Babu" star's upcoming movie, but looks like he gave a hint of Kader Khan's upcoming movie. The actor might now be seen in John Abraham-Anil Kapoor-Nana Patekar starrer "Welcome Back". A filmography section in the Wikipedia page of the actor also shows "Welcome Back" as his next project. However, there is no confirmation regarding the same.
While Amitabh has noted that Kader Khan is coming back to films after a hiatus, not many realsie that he was also seen in "Ungli", which was released last year, and "Tevar" that hit screens this year. However, these were minor roles that seems to have gone unnoticed.
Untill early 2000s, Kader Khan was a regular feature on screen. He was seen in Salman Khan-Akshay Kumar-Priyanka Chopra starrer "Mujhse Shaadi Karoge", which was released more than a decade ago.
In his career spanning over 40 years, Kader Khan has portrayed diverse characters in more than 350 films. He has worked with A-list stars of Bollywood including Big B, Salman, Govinda, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and others.
He also worked in notable films including "Coolie", "Baap Numbri, Beta Dus Numbri", "Hum", "Bol Radha Bol", "Aankhen", "Raja Babu" and "Judwaa" among others.
In 2013, Kader Khan was in news for his fake death reports and he has falled victim to such reports several times. The actor himself then denied the reports and said that the rumours have shaken his family.
"My family is extremely upset about it. They are very worried. All this has shaken my family. Whoever is spreading such rumours, please stop it," Kader told IANS.
"Ek din toh sabko jana hai aur main aap sabki duayein lekar jaunga, (one day everyone has to die and when I'll go, I will go with your blessings). Right now I am completely fine," he added.
