Bhubaneswar: Veteran Bollywood actor and writer Kader Khan, who was hospitalized in a private hospital in Canada a couple of days ago, breathed his last today. He was 81.
The actor, who is known for his comic roles, was shifted from a normal ventilator to a BiPAP ventilator last week due to his breathlessness. He was suffering from pneumonia too.
Reports said the actor was suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a degenerative disease that causes loss of balance, difficulty in walking and dementia.
