Sathar (25 May 1952 – 17 September 2019) was an Indian film actor who primarily worked in Malayalam films. He made his acting debut with M Krishnan Nair's Bharyaye Avashyamundu movie in 1975. He became a hero in 1976 with Anaavaranam, directed by A. Vincent. Even though he started as a leading man, later he became a successful villain as well as character actor. He also did important roles in the early 80's Tamil films Mayil and Soundaryame Varuga Varuga. He acted in almost 300 movies including Tamil and Telugu.
He was in the industry for more than 45 years and made a comeback after a brief hiatus with 22 Female Kottayam.
He died on September 17, 2019 at Aluva.
He was the ninth child among ten children born to Khadarpillai and Fathima at Kadungalloor, Aluva, Ernakulam. His father was a landlord and his mother was a housewife. He had seven brothers, Abdu Kunjhu, Abdhulla, Kunju Mohammad, Kochumakkar, Veeravunny, V.K. Karim, Abdul Jaleel and two sisters, Khadeeja and Jameela. He had his primary education from Government High School West Kadungalloor Aluva and went on to pursue an M.A. in History from Union Christian College, Aluva.
During the filming of K. Narayanan's Mayalayam film 'Beena', the love affair of Sathar and Jaybharathi soon surprised many in the film industry. He later married to actress Jayabharathi in 1979 and parted ways in 1987. Many thought of it as a news story to hear actors working together in a few films together. The climax, however, was by no means expected. It was reported that the two were separated, but they continued to live in good health until years later and die. In the last days, Jayabharathi was his only trust. In the interim, a serial actress had been getting close to him for a few months and they had betrayed him. The couple's only son Krish J. Sathaar made his debut as an actor in acclaimed director Siddique' s Mohanlal-starrer Ladies and Gentleman. Even though Jaybharathy was away for years, he never married again. In many reports, Sattar and Jayabharathi were divorced, but they were not divorced.
Sathar died at 4:30 AM on 17 September 2019 at a private hospital. He had been undergoing treatment for a liver problem for three months at a private hospital in Aluva. He was 67. The funeral was held at West Kadungalloor Juma Masjid.
