Found an article on Shakila. I'm not sure how old it really is, but it's good to see her in a hearty and healthy state.

Was just wondering about another actor that appeared in so many films (over 500), Nazir Hussain.

Don't think he is alive anymore but no mention of his passing away anywhere on the web. But, his bio etc is in past tense, at places.

He was born 1924 (or 1922) and his last films were in mid 1980s.

-------------------

Another famous name Nasir Hussain, Amir Khan's uncle (1931 - 2002)

-------------------

Any relation between these two Nasir Hussains ?? Both Nazir/ Nasir and Hussain/ Hussein spellings are mixed up in various film credits and web pages.


There are/ were two different Nasir/ Nazir Hussain in Bollywood, born 1924 (or 1922), 1931. Both spelling Nasir and Nazir were used for both of them. One born 1931 (died 2002) is Amir Khan's uncle and famous film maker. The other born 1924/ 1922 is the famous character actor and he may or may not be alive ??

Often there is a mix-up when reporting on either of the two. Recently, in a major newspaper news article Aamir Khan inaugurating/ announcing his uncle Nasir Hussain's biography, the picture associated was that of Nazir Hussain, the actor. I can't find that link at the moment, but with google search you can see mix-ups. For example, Google pictures results and another one at this link:
http://www.famousbirthdays.com/people/n ... ssain.html
There are many such mix-ups.

It's possible, Nazir Hussain, the actor, may still be living ?? I haven't found any news to otherwise.

IMDB had no listing of his death but as per Wikipedia, Nazir Hussain (Actor) died in 1987 (15 May 1922 – 16 October 1987).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazir_Hus ... uri_Cinema

BTW, I did mention his birth year as 1924 earlier. But, I think Wikipedia must be more accurate (1922) than IMDB as it even gives exact dates.

Not much info is available on IMDB about the famous legendary singer/ actor C H Atma (died 1975) and Actor Sajjan (died May 17, 2000). I'm gathering info about these two, from here and there, and will post it in the coming days.

C H Atma: (Many famous songs) I recall: Acted in Geet Gaya Patthron Ne (Chacha) and sang "Mandhve Tale Ghareeb Ke Do Phool Khil Rahe Hain".

Sajjan: Used to come as hero in the late 40s, early 50s. In the later years: Major role April Fool and argueably main lead in Tasveer (Feroz Khan, Kalpana).

(Feel free to post about these two if you find any info, before I get to compile and post the info. Thank you.)

This famous name is mentioned in many films starcast in zulm threads, but nothing more.

She did act in some big movies as heroine. And major role in many big films. She even won a Filmfare award for Best Supporting Actress (Baadbaan 1954).

Of coure in later years she appeared in Mother role in films but perhaps not too many.

Yesterday, the forgotten Shakila took her last breath. She'd been on an exile from the Bollywood community since 1962, but was reported to be an active patron of various charitable organizations. She spent her life in London, however did pay visits to Mumbai regularly.

Her niece was interviewed by a blogger in the year 2013. Along with the interview is also attached a very recent picture of her.

Ifran Khan Very Unwell
Quote:
http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/news/bo ... long-time/

Irrfan Khan very unwell, unlikely to return to work for a very long time
BySubhash K. Jha
Mar 8, 2018 - 10:30 am IST

With the film industry fearing the worst about Irrfan Khan’s health, and close friends of the actor confirming the worst, it appears as though Irrfan would be away from the arc lights for quite a while now. “It’s unlikely that he will return to active shooting for quite a while now…Can’t put a number on his absence of leave. But the treatment is going to be a long process,” says a source in the know.

Worst hit on the professional level is Vishal Bhardwaj’s adaptation of crime reporter-author Hussain Zaidi gangster story Sapna Didi featuring Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan. While Deepika and Irrfan both reported sick, Irrfan’s illness is far more serious than originally assumed.

Prernaa Arora who’s the co-producer on the project, says the delay is not of importance as long as the actor gets well. Sounding really upset Prernaa says, “We were about to begin shooting from next week. Vishal Sir had just come back from his final recce. We were all so excited and happy. Now this has happened. Irrfan Khan Sir and Deepika M’aam are our first and only choice .The way things are going in this world makes you wonder where we’re heading. Life is so unpredictable. Every moment warns us not take life for granted, to look after ourselves and our loved ones.”

The worried producer says she has been on tenterhooks about Irrfan’s health. “When Vishal Sir (Bhardwaj) and learnt about Irrfan Sir’s illness I felt very uneasy and depressed. I just wish Irrfan Sir to get well soon. He is a fighter, a self-made success-story and an inspiration to so many of us. I know he will be well soon. He is a fighter and to he was always been a source of inspiration.”

Recalling her association with the actor Prernaa says, “I met Irrfan Sir through Vishal Sir. They go back a long way. They love each other so much. I am so fond of both and their work together in Maqbool and Saat Khoon Maaf. I am big fan of their work. From Day 1 Vishal sir was sure Irrfan Sir was going to be the one and only choice for this role. And that’s the way it’s going to remain. We wish Irrfan Sir speedy recovery and can’t wait to start our film with him.”

Recall old forgotten but memorable hit song:
Tasveer Banaata Hoon Tasveer Nahin Banti
by Talat Mehmood
Film Baradari

But, did you know the Music Director ??
No, it's not Naushad. It's Nashad.
Very similar names from the same era.

----------------------------------
Later, I noticed, IMDB Baradari music to Naushad, credited as Nashad ??
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0154206/fu ... cl_sm#cast

On the other hand Nashad has his own page on IMDB, where his name comes up with music of mostly Pakistani films (and also Baradari).
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3142754/?ref_=nv_sr_4

Any one knows for sure if Nashad and Naushad is the same person or if Baradari music was by Nashad (not Naushad) ??

Chandrashekhar (Cha Cha Cha fame):

In thew 50s and 60s, he was a big name. I'm sure he acted as a hero in some low budget films. But, mostly in supporting roles and a few major side hero roles.

He produced, directed and acted in Cha Cha Cha.

His first film as listed at imdb.com is 1951 film Nirdoshi and then a 1952 famous film Daag (Dilip, Nimmi).
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0151539/
Is it same Chandrashekhar that's in film Three Idiots as "Airlines Ground Staff 2 " ??
Before this he is credited with year 2000 films Kaali Topi Lal Rumal and Khauf.

Born in 1922, does it make him the oldest active actor in Bollywood at 89 Yrs for Three Idiots ??

Any screen shots from his early days as compared to his present look ??


Listening to Ameen Sayani's Geetmala Ki Chhaon Mein, Ameen Sayani Jee mentioned that in 2014, Chandrashekhar is still well and active in films, at age 90. Lets hope he is still alive, well and active. Must be 95 now. Keeping fingers crossed for him to go the Zohra Sehgal way (or even better - live longer), who was active and lived to age 102.
