Noted actor Shadi Lal Kaul, popularly known as 'comedy king of Kashmir', died at a hospital in Jamm on Sunday, his family said. He was 66.

“Kaul sahib was suffering from cancer and was admitted to a hospital about a week ago. He breathed his last around 2.45 am,” his son Vijay Kaul told PTI.

Shadi Lal Kaul is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.

Having an enormous fan following in the Valley, the versatile theatre actor had played lead roles in hundreds of serials and live plays over the past four

decades of his association with the art world and the television industry.

Born in downtown Srinagar, Kaul migrated to Jammu following the exodus of his community from the valley after the eruption of militancy in early 1990.

However, he kept his date with Kashmir and played roles in different television serials.

He was known among his fans as 'Shamas Din” after his lead role in a 104-episode serial 'Shabrang', which was telecast for three successive years from 1981 to 1983 on Doordarshan Srinagar on popular demand.
