Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor remembered his late co-star Amjad Khan on his 76th birth anniversary, calling him a “baby bear”.
Rishi worked with Amjad in films like “Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai”, “Naseeb”, “Hum Kisise Kum Nahi”, “Chala Murari Hero Banne”, “Naqab” and “Ginny Aur Johnny”.
Rishi shared a message for Amjad on Twitter by posting his photograph.
“Happy Birthday big bear Amjad Khan. Remembering you. Baby bear,” he captioned the image.
Amjad is best known for his portrayal of Gabbar in Ramesh Sippy’s “Sholay”.
After the success of “Sholay”, Khan continued to play negative roles in many subsequent Hindi films spanning from 1970 to 1990. He worked in over 130 movies in a career spanning nearly twenty years. He died in 1992.
