Tributes have been pouring in for the veteran actor, Yusuf Hussain, who has sadly passed away today in Mumbai, India.
Reported on Box Office Worldwide, Hussain was known for his roles in ‘Raees’ (2017), ‘Dhoom 2’ (2007) and ‘OMG’ (2012) but to name a few. His daughter, Safeena Hussain, is married to film director Hansal Mehta, who penned a heartfelt message following the news, “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.”
Mehta went on to add, “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!”
