Datuk Aziz Sattar (8 August 1925 – 6 May 2014) was a Malaysian actor, comedian, singer and director who is mostly known for his roles in the black and white Malayan films of the 1950s and 1960s.
Aziz Sattar was born on Bawean island in Pekalongan Village, Gresik Regency, East Java Province, Dutch East Indies on 8 August 1925. When he was three years old, his family migrated to Singapore, where he was raised at Pasir Panjang. There, he met and befriended Salleh Kamil and Shariff Dol, who would later go on to extensive movie careers similar to his own. Aziz Sattar's early education was at the Sekolah Melayu Kota Raja. However, he was unable to continue his education beyond the age of 11 due to the Japanese occupation of Malaya at the time.
By the time Aziz Sattar was 10 years old, he displayed talent as a natural comedian and entertainer, performing for local weddings and festivals in his village. When in his early 20s, he worked as a lorry driver.
In 1952, Aziz Sattar and his two childhood friends were invited to work at the Malay Film Productions studio. Initially, he worked solely as a crew member. Later on in 1953, he was invited to join the supporting cast of the film Putus Harapan. More film offers continued, and Aziz Sattar eventually became a comedian staple of the Malay films of that era, appearing with successful actor P.Ramlee on numerous occasions, most notably in the Bujang Lapok series of films.
Datuk Aziz Sattar married three times. First was with Siti Rumina Ahmad and second with Dayang Sofiah, both of whom were divorced. On 16 December 2006, he married Hashimah Delan in a high-profile affair that was covered extensively by the Malaysian media.
Sattar died on 6 May 2014 at approximately 02:00 am (MYT) in Kajang Hospital due to heart disease. He was buried at the Bandar Tun Hussein Onn Muslim Cemetery in Cheras, Selangor after Zuhr prayers.
