He started his career in the year 1951 in the film Afsana which also marked the filmmaker’s debut of director BR Chopra’s. He kept picking big and small roles but did an equally tremendous job in all the characters he was taken into. In the early stage of his career, he impressed directors like Bimal Roy, who then cast him into a significant role in his movie Do Bhiga Zamin as Lalu Ustad, the shoe shiner in 1953.
He started his journey to becoming a comic actor through Shammi Kapoor’s, Brahmachari in 1968. He made in his name in the industry through his expressions and smile that slowly become mandatory in the movies, and the audience enjoyed his performance on screens thoroughly. But his most Iconic role is remembered even today and is evergreen in the minds of the audience as Soorma Bhoopali in the Blockbuster Sholay in 1975.
