An old friend Nasir P. Ramlee, passed away suddenly yesterday afternoon around 5pm at HKL. According to friends, he died of heart failure. He was 55.

Nasir lived much of his life under the shadow of his famous father the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee. Nasir was Ramlee's son with his wife Junaidah. Nasir wrote and authored a book about his rocky relationship with his father a few years back.

His funeral will be held today (Thursday 18th December) at his residence in Taman Setapak. He will be buried at the Muslim Cemetery in Danau Kota.

His last foray into movies was in my animated feature Budak Lapok in 2006. I casted him for the voice of the main character Ramlee's father.

Al Fatihah.
