Veteran filmmaker Sagar Sarhadi who wrote ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ and ‘Silsila’ dies

Noted writer-filmmaker Sagar Sarhadi, known for films like ‘Kabhi Kabhie’, ‘Silsila’, and ‘Bazaar’, passed away on Sunday night due to age-related issues. He was 88.

Sarhadi breathed his last at his residence at Sion in Maharashtra, 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.

Born as Ganga Sagar Talwar in Baffa, near Abbottabad city, now in Pakistan, the writer is said to have adapted the title ‘Sarhadi’ to carry with him the connection of the frontier province, after he migrated to Delhi at age 12.

The writer collaborated with Chopra to pen screenplay in acclaimed films like ‘Silsila’ (1981) and Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor-starrer ‘Chandni’, for which he wrote the dialogues.

Sarhadi is also credited with writing dialogues for superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s debut ‘Deewana’ in 1992 and Hrithik Roshan’s debut ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’.
