Hrithik Roshan remembers his contribution to Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, says 'will forever be indebted'


After veteran director and writer Sagar Sarhadi's death, Hrithik Roshan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui paid tribute to him with social media posts.


Hrithik Roshan paid tribute to veteran filmmaker and writer Sagar Sarhadi, who died on Sunday night. Sarhadi, who wrote dialogues for films such as Kabhi Kabhie, Chandni and Silsila, also worked on Hrithik's debut film, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai.


The actor took to Twitter to remember him and wrote, “Saddened by the passing of Sagar Sarhadi ji. I will forever be indebted for his contribution as the dialogue writer for Kaho Naa Pyar Hai. My thoughts, prayers and condolences to his family. Om shanti.”


Sarhadi breathed his last at his residence in the Sion area of Mumbai, his nephew filmmaker Ramesh Talwar told PTI. “He passed away shortly before midnight. He wasn't keeping well for some time and had even stopped eating. He passed away peacefully,” Talwar said, adding that his last rites were held at Sion crematorium.


Sarhadi began his career writing Urdu short stories and became an Urdu playwright. Yash Chopra's 1976 film Kabhi Kabhie, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhee, opened the gates to his Bollywood career.


In 1982, Sarhadi turned director with Bazaar, starring Supriya Pathak Kapur, Farooq Shaikh, Smita Patil and Naseeruddin Shah. The film is considered a cult classic today with memorable music by Khayyam and songs such as Dikhayee Diye Yun, Phir Chiddi Raat and Dekh Lo Aaj Humko Jee
