Kader Khan left the entire nation in huge shock as he passed away after a prolonged illness, and suffering from breathing issues at the age of 81. Many celebrities took to their social media accounts to offer their condolences. Govinda, who has worked with him in multiple movies in the past, also expressed his grief and posted a heartfelt message for the late actor. He had called Kader Khan not only his mentor but also a father figure.

Govinda's post had read, "RIP Kader Khan Saab. He was not just my "ustaad" but a father figure to me, his midas touch and his aura made every actor he worked with a superstar. The entire film industry and my family deeply mourns this loss and we cannot express the sorrow in words. I pray to God that may his soul rest in peace.#ripkaderkhansaab.’’

However, Kader Khan’s son Sarfaraz Khan was not too happy with Govinda’s message. He had told IANS, "Please ask Govinda how many times he inquired about his 'father figure's' health. Has he even bothered to call us even once after my father's passing away? This is the way our film industry has become. There are no real feelings for those who have contributed to Indian cinema when they're no longer active."

Now, in an interview with BBC Hindi, Govinda WAS asked about Sarfaraz's jibe at him, to which he responded, ''Woh bachche hain. Aur mujhe aisa lagta hai ki main uspe comment nahin doonga. He is a kid. Mujhe pata laga woh. [He is a kid and I would not like to comment on it. He is a kid. I got know (what he said)].’’

Govinda and Kader Khan co-starred in several film including Haseena Maan Jayegi, Hero No 1, Raja Babu, Sajan Chale Sasural and Coolie No 1 among others. Kader Khan's funeral was held in Canada. He was buried in a cemetery in Toronto.
