The unforgettable lines “Ja Simran Ja” by Bauji Chaudhary Baldev Singh in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge instantly strikes a bell in our hearts. The angry glare of Amrish Puri rattling these iconic words stirred the hearts of the audience. It was a sight to behold and the words became a mantra for many people. Let us pay our tributes to the great actor cum villain of Bollywood today as it is his 89th birthday.
An actor class apart
A class-apart actor and an incredible villain- this is Amrish Puri for all of us and the cinema fraternity. Let us tread back and remember his illustrious career performances today! A favourite of many, people started mesmerised in fear and thrill as Amrish Puri enacted roles on screen. He antagonized all of us with his villainous looks, ominous smile, and menacing eyes, but the joy of watching him come on screen was immense.
World’s greatest villain
Steven Spielberg, one of the ace filmmakers in the world, labeled Amrish Puri as the world’s greatest villain. This is no small accomplishment. As we remember the veteran actor on his 89th birth anniversary today, we are reminded of his inimitable performances. Amrish Puri stepped into the cult villainous role of “Mokambo” in Mr. India and set the frame aflame with his leering looks.
Amrish Puri also ruled the screens when he essayed roles of an unusually kind, submissive, comical, vulnerable, and austere man in different movies such as Ghatak, Karan Arjun, Phool aur kaante and many more. With respect and love- a happy birthday to you sir where ever you are!
