Farewell, Feroz Khan

Very quickly: It's a sad goodbye to Feroz Khan, who had died in his Bangalore, India ranch early Monday morning.

He will be forever remembered for the 1980 feature Qurbani ("sacrifice"), which he not only starred in, but also produced and directed. (BollywoodWorld reports that he had wanted to remake it — a dream that has died with the man.)

Here is a report (via Screen) of Amitabh Bachchan's reactions to Mr. Khan's passing.

Feroz Khan was referred to as "the Clint Eastwood of the East." He certainly made everybody's day in Bollywood. Thank you, sir.
