Actor Abdul Kader loses battle with cancer and Covid-19

Actor Abdul Kader loses battle with cancer and Covid-19

Popular actor Abdul Kader passed away at a hospital in the capital on Saturday at the age of 69.

His daughter-in-law Zahida Islam Jamie confirmed the matter to media.

Kader was recently diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer and later tested positive for Covid-19. He was shifted to the ICU of Evercare Hospital in the early hours of Friday after his conditions deteriorated.

The veteran actor returned home from Christian Medical Hospital in India’s Chennai last Sunday and got admitted to Evercare Hospital in the capital  where his coronavirus test result came out positive the following day.

Kader went to Chennai on December 8 for treatment as he fell sick and the doctors there diagnosed him with stage IV pancreatic cancer which already spread to different parts of his body.

The doctors in Chennai could not provide him with chemotherapy due to the actor’s extremely weak and critical health condition.

Kader’s family was waiting for further progress of his ailing health so that he can be treated with chemotherapy once his body regains strength, however, things went more critical with him after being positive for COVID-19.

Born in 1951 at the Sonarang village of Tongibari Upazila in Munshiganj, Abdul Kader obtained his Honours and Master’s from the Department of Economics at Dhaka University.

He is best known for playing “Bodi” in Humayun Ahmed’s iconic drama series “Kothao Keu Nei” and “Dulabhai” in Humayun Ahmed’s another popular drama “Nakshatrer Raat.”

As a comedic actor, Kader had been regularly active in television since the 90s’ and also had been a regular cast as “Mama” on the “Mama-Vagne” segment alongside actor Afzal Sharif on Hanif Sanket’s “Ityadi,” the most popular magazine show in the country.

Kader was also a prominent actor and executive member of drama troupe Theatre. 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina expressed profound shock at his death.
