When Feroz Khan addressed Casanova’s image of his son Fardeen Khan: ‘Even his father had the same image’
Veteran actor Feroz Khan is remembered for his impeccable style and screen presence. The icon, who died that day in 2009, was known for her shameless opinions and movies that broke the mold. As we remember the late actor on his death anniversary today, we look back at how he reacted to Casanova’s image of his son Fardeen Khan at the time, and his equation with the star of yesteryear Mumtaz.
In an interview, which is part of the documentary Aman ki Asha which aired on Geo News in Pakistan in the early 2000s, Feroz spoke about the public image of his son Fardeen. Fardeen made his acting debut in director Prem Aggan de Feroz (1998).
“Fardeen is a beautiful boy and has millions of fans. Regarding his image of Casanova, well even his father had the same image, and so did he. When an actor starts to do a good job, he becomes very popular with the fans. Fardeen has a special fan following around the world. I am very happy for him. He has settled down now and married a very nice girl (Natasha Madhvani), ”said Feroz Khan.
Fardeen married Natasha in 2005. Natasha is the daughter of Mumtaz, with whom Feroz had an on-screen couple. In the same interview, Feroz Khan added: “Mumtaz has been my favorite actress. We have worked together in 6 films. It was I who took Mumtaz abroad to Germany where I raced F1 at the Nürburgring in 1971. “
Over a career spanning more than five decades, Feroz Khan has been a part of several memorable films including Aadmi Aur Insaan, Khote Sikkay, Qurbani, Nagin, and others. He also did it later in films like Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena and Welcome, the latter being his last on-screen appearance.
Known for delivering hit songs in almost all of his tracks, Feroz said, “All of my songs have always been hits, whether it’s Qurbaani, Dharmatma, Apradh, Dayavan. It’s part of the game. ”
A filmmaker himself, Feroz called the medium of cinema an entertainment platform.
“Cinema is entertainment. We are not reformers. If we seek to reform through cinema, people will be bored. But around this entertainment, we must also say good things, transmit a message through cinema. It is very important that the cinema sends a message of compassion and humanity. No other nation can dominate us. India has the manpower, the brains, the technicians, the scientists, the doctors. You name it and we have them. Even America is calling our experts at NASA, ”he said. Feroz Khan died on April 27, 2009 from lung cancer. He was 69 years old.
