The late veteran actor Kader Khan is no more with us and thus remains the most missed actors in B Town. Ever since he passed away in January 2019, he has been remembered a lot in B Town and other circles. His much-deserved award – Padma Shri has been pending and it’s unfortunate to see him nowhere in this world to receive this honor from the Indian government. Finally, when he is bestowed with this award, his son Sarfaraz Khan was seen receiving it in Toronto.
He was supposed to visit Delhi to receive this award, but things did not work for him as he stays in Toronto. So, it was the Consul General Dinesh Bhatia from India who is based in the Canadian city to receive this award. When the award was announced, his son Sarfaraz wrote in his statement that it was his father’s 45 years contribution, which has been applauded by the Indian government. He then said he accepts it with great honor and respect on behalf of his father. He said he is pleased to see the honor coming for his father even when he is not in this world.
While failing to attend the award function, he had short notice to catch the award ceremony, while he tried the best to make it but failed to do so. This made the authorities arrange the award back in Canada. While writing about the same, he said that it was its best gift of his life to see his later father getting the Padma Shri, which he had received on his birthday. He then thanks to the Honourable President of India for recognizing his father for the same. He also thanked the Government of India and the jury members for the same.
