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. 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!

Condolences from the Bollywood fraternity:

The late actor has worked in many films and television shows in his life. Some of his notable characters were in movies like Dabangg 3, Dhoom, Dil Chahta Hai, OMG: Oh My God, Raaz, Shahid, Krrish 3 and Raees among others. He had also been a part of shows like Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahaan, CID, Ssshhhh... Koi Hai and Kumkum: Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan.

We pray that he rests in peace and we offer our condolences to the family!
