Speaking to PTI Kareem said, “Amos worked with a superstar but was endearing and simple. He was like this to not just Aamir but everyone. Amos put everyone at ease and was a wonderful person and was so bright and a hard worker.”
He further added, “He had no major illness, his death is shocking. Amos died with his boots on. Both Aamir and Kiran are devastated. Aamir expressed shock and total disbelief. He was doing perfectly fine. Aamir said it was an irreplaceable loss for him and the family. The actor will be lost now because he was very close to Amos, who treated him like his own family. He was in awe of Aamir. While everyone knows Aamir as a perfectionist, behind him was Amos’ hard work and dedication.”
Karim said Amos had recently turned grandfather and his death is a huge loss to everyone who knew him. Amos is survived by his wife and two children.
