RETIRED businessman Wahid Ali, whose house featured in Bollywood films shot in Fiji and who played host to Tamil-based movie stars on Denarau, has died.

Mr Ali died on March 20 in San Francisco in the US after a long illness.

Voicenet IP (Fiji) Ltd and Prabha Holdings (Fiji) Ltd, Mr Ali's companies, announced his passing.

Mr Ali played a vital role in showcasing the beauty of the country; he gave his home freely to international movie production houses to be used as a base and, in some cases, as a setting for movie scenes.

He is survived by his wife Prabha Wati Ali, two sons Victor and Alvin and grandchildren Rachana, Kaajal, Shekhar and Shaneel Ali. He will be buried at Varavu in Ba today.
