  1. RIP.

    A legend and game changer.

    Many Bollywood actors copy his style in terms of dialogues and dialogue delivery. think of all of akshay kumar films.

    RIP. His Bakra shows were a major hit in the Middle East. His comic timing was superb, although alarmingly sexist in retrospect.
    Many of his successors copied his style

    • Not just sexist but probably wrong at many level is you look at it thru current sensitive culture.

      I mean he had joke on Pakistan, islam, dark skin, women, tall/short people, etc…

      There was no filter. But he did do it with good intentions and always had message for India/Pakistan to have good relations.

      • Have seen “Bakra Qiston pe” in school times; Found it funny. I was not mature to to care about objectionable content. Even now, if there is no agenda then I have no problem with extreme content.
