Aamir Khan Father Tahir Hussain Passes away

Aamir Khan Father Tahir Hussain, well-known filmmaker, died of a massive heart attack here Tuesday morning, sources close to the family said.

He is survived by his wife and two sons, Aamir and Faisal, and two daughters, Farhat and Nikhat.

Hussain is known for producing hits like "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" (1993) that starred son Aamir, "Dulha Bikta Hai" (1982), "Zakhmee" (1975), "Anamika" (1973) and "Caravan" (1971).

Brother of prominent writer-producer-director Nasir Hussain, Tahir Hussain produced around a dozen films though he wasn't as successful as his brother. The only film he directed was Tum Mere Ho starring son Aamir Khan but the film flopped.

In later years Tahir had a strained relationship with his son Aamir. Reportedly Aamir dissociated from his father when Hussain tried to raise finance for his film using Aamir's name. Tahir remarried and moved out with his second wife.

Family sources said Hussain died at Aamir Khan Residence Bandra. Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao are in the US for the Sundance Festival and are taking the first flight home. Hussain's grandson, Imran Khan, who made his debut with "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na", is in New Zealand and will also be coming back. Funeral hold on 3rd Feb.-2010 Wednesday morning.
