Kundan Shah, director of the cult black comedy Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro and the romantic drama Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, died in his sleep after suffering a cardiac arrest in Mumbai on October 7. He was 69.
Kundan Shah, a veteran writer, and filmmaker noted for his iconic movie Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro and Telly series Nukkad passed away and filmmaker Kabir Khan remembered the filmmaker was his warmth.
“Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is truly an iconic film. A film which the whole generation loved grew upon and watches it even now, every time it comes on television. But I would like to mention that he was a warm person. I didn’t meet him much but I remember when I was working as freelance camera person and just completed my movie, I’d come from Delhi, I went on sets of Nukkad that is where I met him”
“I was in awe of this person because of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, I was taken aback by the warmth of him. I was just a cameraperson and he showed me around the set personally. I was just 22 years old and he took me around and showed me how the things were done on set. I still remember that day and that’s the day I’d like to remember when he is no more” added Kabir Khan.
