In an interview , Kadar had told why he stopped playing the villain on screen because of his elder son Abdul Quddus. His elder son Quddus would come home after playing with his friends with his clothes all torn. As a villain, he always got beaten up in the end. His friends and classmates told him that his father beats up people and then, in the end, he gets beaten up. His son used to get angry at such comments and get into fights. One day, when he came home with a head injury, kadar became very upset and decided he would not accept villain roles anymore. ‘Himmatwala’, a comedy, was being made and I started doing comic roles from then on.”
