Syed Musa Raza, (December 25, 1925 – June 11, 1982) better known as Santosh Kumar (Punjabi, Urdu: سنتوش کمار‎), was a famous Pakistani film actor of 1950s and 1960s era. He belonged to a well educated family from Uttar Pradesh, India. He was married to Sabiha Khanum. His brother Darpan was also a renowned film actor during that period. His other brother S. Suleiman was a renowned film director.

Santosh Kumar was Pakistan's super star film hero along with Sudhir but he was the first ever top romantic hero. His first film was Ahensa in 1947 in India. In Pakistan, his first film was Beli in 1950 and in the same year he became hero of the first ever silver jubilee Urdu film Do aansoo.

Biography[edit]

Santosh Kumar’s real name was Syed Musa Raza. He was born in 1925 in Lahore, British India. However, he hailed from a noble Shia Muslim family of Uttar Pradesh, India. He graduated from Osmania University, Hyderabad, where he passed the I.Sc. (pre-graduate course) examination with high marks. Widely regarded as dignified, intelligent and charismatic, Santosh Kumar was often offered roles in government, but he respectfully declined in favour of people he felt were better suited for such positions.

Owing to his education and awareness, Santosh Kumar was always designated to lead the entourage to represent Pakistan in meetings held abroad, and because of this became known as the "foreign minister of the Pakistan Film Industry". This was revealed by him in one of his interviews broadcast by the Radio Pakistan in the mid sixties.

Initially, he was married to Jameela Begum, but subsequently married actress Sabiha. The first Nigar Award for best actor in the history of Pakistan was presented to him in film Waada. Shaam Dhalay is the only movie he produced, directed and played the lead role. He died on June 11, 1982, months short of his first son, Syed Ahsan Raza's wedding.
