Legends don't die: Ira pens emotional note for Amos Paul
Aamir Khan's daughter Ira has shared a heartfelt note in remembrance of the superstar's late assistant Amos Paul. Amos (60), who had been working with Aamir for 25 years, passed away on Tuesday after suffering a massive heart attack. He was rushed to a hospital by Aamir (55), wife Kiran Rao and their team, but he succumbed to the attack.
Taking to Instagram Stories on Wednesday, Ira wrote, "RIP Amos. Thanks for teaching me how to make home-made coffee look cool, playing saat-aath with us and showing me what efficient packing really looks like." "Didn't think you'd ever not be around," Ira (23), who is a theater director, added. "Legends do not die," she summed up.
Aamir, Kiran and a small group of people attended Amos's funeral at the Christian cemetery in Mumbai's Sewri. Pictures that surfaced from the spot showed Aamir and Kiran, wearing face masks, standing in a silent prayer alongside his coffin. Amos is survived by his wife and two children. Earlier, Aamir's friend and actor Karim Hajee said the couple was "devastated" after Amos's demise.
Karim said that Amos had no major illness, adding, "His death is shocking. He died with his boots on." "Amos worked with a superstar but was endearing and simple. He was like this to not just Aamir but everyone. He put everyone at ease and was a wonderful person. He had a wonderful heart, was so bright and a hard worker," Karim said.
On the work front, Aamir will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, an official Hindi remake of Oscar award-winning Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. It also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan. However, all productions currently remain stalled due to COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, Aamir has been doing his bit to fight the pandemic. He recently participated in an online fundraiser concert, aimed at supporting those affected.
