Film director Azhari Zain died, buried in Klang today

Film director Prof Azhari Zain breathed his last at 12.05 midnight yesterday after being bedridden for nine months due to a stroke.

The sad news was shared by the general secretary of Seniman in a media statement.

The deceased died at their residence in Sunway Alam Suria, Shah Alam, Selangor.

Funeral arrangements and prayers were completed at Ar-Raudhah Mosque, Section U10, Shah Alam, at around 8am before burial at the Islamic Cemetery Jalan Paip Meru, Klang, Selangor.

Previously, Azhari, who suffered a stroke since last February, was allowed to return home after three months of treatment in hospital.

His condition at the time was reported to be critical due to bleeding in the head when the blood vessels in the brain were blocked, affecting movement and communication.

As a recovery effort, the family of the owner, whose real name is Azhari Mohd Zain, 50, is also seeking alternative treatments such as acupuncture and massage.

Even though the movement is limited by only using eye signals, he still enthusiastically follows the routine until he can do simple movements.

However, it is understood that his health has been deteriorating since the past week.

Earlier Azhari who started his publishing career in 2004 was trusted as a writer in various film projects such as Tangkai Jering, Portrait Mistik, Anak Mami Kembali, Nana Tanjung, Otai and Duyung.

During that period, the late, who is also the Deputy Dean of Student Affairs at the Faculty of Film, Theater and Animation at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) directed around 20 films.

Among the productions that got his touch are the films Santau, Zoo, Hantu Dalam Botol Capac, Mantra, Flat 3A, Seram Seuk, Salam Cinta, Minyak Dagu, Sabda Kekasi, Hantu Kelima and Siku 12: Langkah Dehaka.

Azhari has also been active in acting by participating in the films Nana Tanjung 2, Cicakman 2: Planet Hitam, Duyung, Sifu & Tonga, Magika and Selamat Hari Tak Jadi.

He is survived by his wife, Wahizatul Nureen and three children.
