Noted actor Abdul Kader, who was diagnosed with stage IV cancer, returned to Dhaka from Chennaiâ€™s Christian Medical Hospital on December 20. He was taken to the hospital as the situation to take him home has not been created yet, according to his family members.
The actorâ€™s daughter-in-law, Zahida Islam Jamie said, â€œWe reached the airport here at 6:50pm yesterday. An ambulance was kept there and we went directly to Evercare Hospital. Even though his condition is a little better, it is still critical. We request everyone to pray for him.â€ It was learned that Abdul Kaderâ€™s hemoglobin levels have risen slightly while he was hospitalized in India, however, the decision to give him chemotherapy has not made as his condition was severely weak. Now his family and relatives are waiting for the doctorsâ€™ decision after being admitted to the hospital in Dhaka. It is to be mentioned that the actor was quite ill during the entire period of the Covid outbreak in the country.
His family members could not take him abroad for advanced treatment as the flights were shut down. He was taken to Vellore in Chennai on December 8, resulting in the diagnosis of cancer there.
Born in Sonarong village of Tongibari police station in Munshiganj, Abdul Kader came to the limelight in the early 90s through the role of Bodi in popular TV serial Kothao Keu Nei. In his three-decade-long acting career, he has worked tirelessly on stage, drama and movies.
