Yusuf Husain dies at 73, Hansal Mehta writes emotional tribute: ‘Not my father-in-law but a father’
Veteran actor Yusuf Husain has passed away because of Covid-19 complications. He was 73, and admitted to Lilavati hospital in Mumbai. Film Director Hansal Mehta affirmed the passing of his father-in-law to indianexpress.com.
Mourning Husain’s death, Hansal, posted a tribute note on Twitter, “I had completed 2 schedules of Shahid. And we were stuck. I was troubled. A non-existent career as a filmmaker was almost finished completely. He just came up to me and said I have a fixed deposit and it is of no use to me if you are so troubled. He wrote a cheque. Shahid was completed. That was Yusuf Husain. Not my father-in-law but a father. He was life if life itself had to have a physical form.”
Hansal was wedded to Yusuf Husain’s daughter Safeena, a social worker and activist.
Hansal further wrote, “Today he is gone. To remind all those women in heaven that they are ‘Duniya ki sabse khubsurat ladki’ and all the men that they are ‘Haseen naujwaan’. And then to end with a booming ‘love you love you love you’. Yusuf Saab I owe this new life to you. I am truly orphaned today. Life will never be the same. I will miss you terribly. My Urdu will remain broken. And yes – love you love you love you!”
