Nazir Ahmad Khan (Urdu: نذِیر‎) (1904 – 26 August 1983) was a Pakistani film actor, director and producer.

Personal life[edit]

Nazir was born in a Kakazai Pathan family.[2] He had at least three wives over the years. He was first married to his cousin Sikandara Begum (who was the sister of K. Asif, the legendary director of 1960 film Mughal-e-Azam). He later had a very short marriage with Sitara Devi, the legendary Kathak dancer. After their divorce, Sitara Devi married none other Nazir's cousin K. Asif himself. In other words, she married first the husband and then the brother of Sikandara Begum. Nazir's last wife was film actress Swaran Lata.[1] Nazir was the father of several children. He gave one of his daughters in marriage to actor Nasir Khan (brother of Dilip Kumar).

Nazir Ahmed Khan died in August 1983.[3]
