Today, Indian cinema has lost one of the finest actors in the industry. He was a director’s actor, he had no comfort zone, and he had the caliber to make every zone a comfortable and natural one for him.
From being a student at the national school of drama to the Padma Shri award winner his journey in Bollywood is filled with different characters, genres and great acting. He proved that ultimately acting skills are the most important thing in the industry and there is no replacement for it.
Comedy, antagonist, lover, father, ardent and youngster you name it and he has done all kind of roles giving us the best movies ever.
Here, are some of his favorite’s characters on screen.

Anant Walenkar – ArdhSatya


The potrayal of a helpless but honest Police Inspector fighting against the fragile system and his own demons, makes this movie a Master Class for the Actors. That cry in the end can make you feel sink.

Ahuja- Jaane Bhi do Yaaro

The drunk contractor from the classic cult comedy movie, his acting skills and comedy timings and the Punjabi accent added charm to the movie.

Abu Miyan- Mirch masala

The person, who stood against the British raj and society to protect the dignity of a woman. He played the role of a much older person and justified it to every bit.

Durgaprasad Bharadwaj- Chachi 420

We all loved this funny wannabe detective, who despite his all failed attempts wanted to solve the mystery of Chachi.

Sanathan- Maachis

a victim of communal and political violence who has taken up a different way now to restore basic civil rights and dignity of common people in the country. He was intense at the same time emotional in the movie. This was one of his best performances in Bollywood.

Khadak Singh- Hera Pheri

He can be zealous on screen but humor is his right hand’s work. We all loved how this Sardar will always come after Shyam and every time will return empty hand, his dialogue delivery made this movie a fun ride for us.

Bagheera- Jungle book

He just gave his voice for Bagheera. But, it was not like any other dubbing, he made it more special for us because of the love and warmth he had in the voice.
These few memorable characters just show how versatile he was as an actor and indeed Indian cinema has lost a veteran actor today.
