Noted film and television actor Yusuf Husain has passed away. He was 73 years old. Yusuf was reportedly suffering from Covid-19 complications and was admitted to Lilavati hospital in Mumbai. As soon as the news of his death was shared on social media, many celebs including Hansal Mehta, Abhishek Bachchan and Manoj Bajpayee took to social media to pen heartfelt tribute. Details about his last rites are awaited.


The news of Yusuf Husain's death was first shared by his son-in-law Hansal Mehta. The filmmaker took to his official Twitter account to mourn the demise of the late actor. Hansal was married to Yusuf Husain’s daughter Safeena, a social worker and activist. He wrote an emotional note saying, "I had completed 2 schedules of Shahid. And we were stuck. I was troubled. A non-existent career as a filmmaker was almost finished completely. He just came up to me and said I have a fixed deposit and it is of no use to me if you are so troubled. He wrote a cheque. Shahid was completed. That was Yusuf Husain. Not my father-in-law but a father. He was life if life itself had to have a physical form."

Hansal Mehta added, "Today he is gone. To remind all those women in heaven that they are 'Duniya ki sabse khubsurat ladki' and all the men that they are 'Haseen naujwaan'. And then to end with a booming 'love you love you love you'. Yusuf Saab I owe this new life to you. I am truly orphaned today. Life will never be the same. I will miss you terribly. My Urdu will remain broken. And yes - love you love you love you (sic)!"
