Feroz Khan is remembered because the star who had a larger-than-life aura. His movies usually offered him because the all encompassing star who dared to push the envelope. In a latest interview, his son Fardeen Khan shared that his father began making motion pictures as a result of he believed that he by no means obtained his due as a star till that time.
Talking concerning the Qurbani star, Fardeen mentioned that Feroz at all times dreamed of being in a western however the type of movies he was engaged on, by no means projected him in the best way he had imagined. So he determined to make motion pictures for himself.
“In my conversations with him, he never felt any script or director captured the way he wanted to project himself on screen and that was one of the reasons he decided to… he was always very keen on getting behind the camera, but that was one of the reasons he decided to produce and direct,” shared Fardeen with Bollywood Hungama.
Feroz began making motion pictures with 1972’s Apradh and although he had featured in lots of motion pictures till then, he was miles away from being the star that he finally turned. “Up to Apradh, he was still doing supporting roles. Yes, he had done some leads but he hadn’t made it to where he wanted to and that’s why he wanted to launch himself as a producer-director. He wanted to act in his films and project himself the way he envisioned it,” shared Fardeen.
Feroz Khan is remembered for making movies like Dharmatma and Qurbani and for Fardeen, these had been the movies that “captured the essence of the star Feroz Khan, what he was all about.”
Feroz Khan’s final on-screen look was within the 2007 movie Welcome. He handed away in 2009 on the age of 69.
