FIROZ KHAN

FIROZ KHAN

Veteran actor Feroze khan who lost his battle to cancer today was always known for being a self-made man. Born to a Pathan father and an Iranian mother, Feroze Khan spent his entire childhood in Bangalore, a city he was deeply attached to till his last moments.

Soon after finishing his schooling, the young and dynamic Khan had set his sights on conquering Bollywood. Success never came easily to him and Khan had to graduate from doing B-grade films before getting noticed in the 1965 film OONCHE LOG. Though the film didn't get him the recognition he wanted, Khan never gave up his fight and won his first ever Filmfare award in 1969 for his powerful portrayal in AADMI AUR INSAAN.

After achieving success as an actor, Khan also tried his hand at producing films. His first production DHARMATMA, which he also acted and directed in 1975 proved to be a big hit of its time. The film which was majorly filmed in Afghanistan made Feroze Khan one of the big stars of his time. This was followed by blockbusters like QURBANI and JANBAAZ which consolidated his stardom in the industry.

After the end of the '80's era, Feroze Khan lost the midas touch he was popularly associated with and produced a series of flop films like YALGAAR and PREM AGAN, which was the launch pad for his son Fardeen Khan.

The veteran Khan was known for his flamboyant lifestyle. He commanded a huge female fan following during his hey days and even after he retired from active career.

Khan was last seen in the 2007 hit film WELCOME, in which he played the character of an underworld don.
