Those who watch Indian news, would notice the striking facial resemblance journalist Rajdeep Sardesai has with the departed Girish Karnad. Like twins separated at birth. https://twitter.com/anotherdeep/status/ ... 41504?s=20

Mumbai: Veteran music director-composer Mohammed Zahur Hashmi, popularly known as Khayyam, passed away late on Monday of cardiac arrest. He was 92.

Khayyam, who was admitted to the ICU of Sujay Hospital a few days ago following an infection in the lungs, was known for composing music for films like ‘Kabhie Kabhie’ and ‘Umrao Jaan’.

Ghazal singer Talat Aziz confirmed reports to a leading daily that Khayyam passed away at 9.30 PM and what led to his demise was bilateral lung infection.

The musician had been awarded the prestigious Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and Padma Bhushan. He started his career in music in Ludhiana at the age of 17. After his first big break with ‘Umrao Jaan’, the composer made a permanent place for himself in the industry and his tunes continue to be loved even today. His awards include a National Award apart from other tributes for his various works.

Apart from films, the composer will also be remembered for his non-film songs like Paaon padun tore shyam, Ghazab kiya tere vaade pe aitbaar kiya, to name a few.

Shyam Ramsay, one of the seven Ramsay Brothers known for cult horror films such as Purani Haveli (1989) and Tahkhana (1986), succumbed to pneumonia at a hospital yesterday, his family said. "He was hospitalised two to three days ago as he was not feeling well. He passed away at around 5 am today," a relative said.

Veteran actors Raza Murad, Puneet Issar and Pankaj Dheer were among those who paid tribute to the filmmaker, remembering him as a "humble" and "polite" man. Murad, who worked with the Ramsay Brothers in the 2006 film, Family: Ties Of Blood, said that despite infusing horror in the hearts of the audience, the entire kin was soft-spoken.

Dr Shriram Lagoo

Dr Shriram Lagoo, the masterly misfit

Subhash K Jha
Published: 18 Dec 2019, 5:23 PM
Engagement: 128

The supremely talented Shriram Lagoo who passed away on December 17 was a late bloomer. He did his first film when he was into his 40s.

He was 42 when he finally quit his successful career as an ENT doctor and pursued his passion for acting in the theatre where he did such memorable plays as Nata Samrat, Kaachecha Chandra and Gidhade.

Back then for an actor in his 40s to enter Bollywood was unheard of. But he got lucky with V Shantaram’s Pinjra in Marathi where Dr Lagoo was cast as an aging school teacher in a conservative village who creates a scandal by falling in love with a prostitute.

Though the film with its rippling raunchy lavani songs, was a big hit Dr Lagoo, ever candid and self-exploratory confessed that the great Shantaram’s genius was on the decline by the time he made Pinjra and also admitted that re-making Pinjra into Hindi was a big mistake.

Such brutal frankness is unknown in Hindi cinema. Forever the outsider, Dr Lagoo never minced words. His honesty was extended to his characters which seemed to be real even when placed in hardcore commercial milieu such as Prakash Mehra’s Lawaris where Dr Lagoo left an impact as Amitabh Bachchan’s alcoholic co-star.

In his most memorable role in Hindi in Gharoanda in Hindi 1977, he was cast as one of three central characters alongside Amol Palekar and Zarina Wahab. Dr Lagoo played a widower who undergoes a marriage of convenience with a much younger woman. Understandably he had very few really meaty roles to sink his teeth into. Yet such was craving for the stage and camera that he did demeaning minuscule parts in scores and scores of Hindi films all through the 1980 and 90s.

Theatre and film actress Lilette Dubey who never got an opportunity to work with Dr Lagoo makes an interesting observation about his career. “Like Amrish Puri, Boman Irani, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith , Dr Lagoo got into acting late in his life. His acting career followed a similar trajectory to theirs. For me Dr Lagoo exemplified how intelligence can be brought to the fore in every field ,even one of acting , he was a true blood theatre actor , magnificent on stage, who transitioned brilliantly on to screen with his natural and real, yet intense style of acting .One will always remember his wonderfully expressive eyes .. another great passes on ..Unfortunately I never got to work with his…One of life’s mysteries .. But remember, I started my mid-life accidental film career barely 19-20 years ago by when he had retired almost from films.”

Actor-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan who worked in several films with Dr Lagoo during the latter’s career’s rush-hour in the 1990s remembers him as an erudite gentle sophisticated actor.

Says Roshan, “Apart from being extremely talented Dr Lagoo was a humble and well-read person. He was always polite and smiling.He will be remembered for his work. Always.”
