Veteran Pakistani actor and director Habib-ur-Rehman died here today after a prolonged illness.

He was 85.

Habib, a popular actor of Urdu and Punjabi language movies, was admitted to a local hospital here after suffering brain hemorrhage two weeks ago.

His funeral prayers were offered at the Airline Society this evening.

Born in 1931 in Patiala, Habib had a post-graduation degrees in Urdu, English and Persian. He worked in more than 600 Urdu and Punjabi language films.

Considered to be an illustrious romantic hero, he started his film career in 1956 with debutant movie 'Lakht–e–jigar' as a side hero along Santosh Kumar and Noor Jehan.

Habib was among the spectators watching the film shoot when he was spotted by the director who immediately took him into the film.

His first super hit movie was 'Zeher-e-Ishq' with Musarrat Nazeer and this movie bought him under the spotlight of stardom.

He won the Nigar award as a best actor for Luqman's movie 'Admi' and Shabab Kiranvi’s 'Surraiya'. He also won worldwide recognition for his heartfelt performance in the historical movie 'Devdaas' paired with Shamim Ara and Nayyar Sultana.

He married fellow film actress Naghma, but later divorced her.

Habib is the father of two sons and four daughters from his first wife, and another daughter later from his second wife.

To honour his services, the Pakistani government had awarded him with the Presidential Pride accolade.
