PETALING JAYA: Malaysian screen legend Datuk Abdul Aziz Sattar (pic), 89, died of a heart attack at about 2am on Tuesday.
News of his passing was confirmed by his grandson, Abu Ubaidah A. Ishak through his Twitter account at about 2:15am.
Earlier on Sunday night, Aziz was rushed to KPJ medical centre in Kajang after he suffered a heart attack but was reported to be in stable condition and later moved to the medical centre’s Coronary Care Unit (CCU).
Abdul Aziz acted together with the legendary Tan Sri P. Ramlee and the late S. Shamsuddin as the Bujang Lapuk trio in the 1950's.
His remains were brought to his residence in Bandar Tun Hussein Onn, Cheras before burial at the Cheras Perdana Muslim cemetery after Zohor prayers this afternoon.
