The legendary actor and writer Kader Khan's funeral took place yesterday at ISNA and he was buried at Meadowvale Cemetery. Son Sarfaraz Khan said that Kader Khan died surrounded by his family members and he had a "smile on his face" as he died. "There was a smile on my father's face when he passed away. I cherish that smile more than anything else in the world. My father's final years were very painful for him. He suffered from a degenerative disease that left him completely without the will to do anything. May Allah forgive Brother Kader and give him the highest place in Jannah. #KaderKhan #ripkaderkhan #kaderkhansaab #Bollywood #comedian #actor
