Datuk Aziz Sattar (born August 8, 1925) is a Malaysian actor, comedian, singer and director who is mostly known for his roles in the black and white Malayan films of the 1950s and 1960s.

Early life

Aziz Sattar was born in Pakalongan, Central Java, Indonesia on August 8, 1925. When he was three years old, his family migrated to Singapore, where he was raised at Pasir Panjang. There, he met and befriended Salleh Kamil and Shariff Dol, who would later go on to extensive movie careers similar to his own. Sattar's early education was at the Sekolah Melayu Kota Raja, but he could not continue his education beyond the age of 11, due to the Japanese occupation of Malaya at the time.

By the time Aziz was 10 years old, he displayed talent as a natural comedian and entertainer, performing for local weddings and festivals in his village. When in his early 20s, he worked as a lorry driver.

Career

In 1952, Aziz and his two childhood friends were invited to work at the Malay Film Productions studio. Initially, Aziz worked solely as a crew member, but in 1953, he was invited to join the supporting cast of the film "Putus Harapan". More film offers continued, and Aziz eventually became a comedian staple of the Malay films of that era, appearing with successful actor P. Ramlee on numerous occasions, most notably in the "Bujang Lapok" series of films.

Personal life

Aziz has married three times. First was with Siti Rumina Ahmad and second with Dayang Sofiah, both of whom were divorced. On December 16, 2006, he wed Hashimah Delan in a high-profile affair that was covered extensively by the Malaysian media.
