  2. Unbelievable, just 2 days back, I was looking up who played a cop’s role the most in Bollywood films. Damn.


  3. Legend has it that he was once even saluted by an actual hawaldar while shooting in the interiors. He also represents an entire era in Bollywood when you had many such familiar faces for smaller supporting bits… Mac Mohan, Sudhir Kumar, Iftikhar, AK Hangal, Zubesco, Manek Irani, etc.

    His daughter is Anita Raj, of Ghulami fame.
