The famous Indian actor, producer, and singer has appeared in over 180 films, and has won too many awards to count. He sealed his claim to fame with his rold in the 1973 film Zanjeer where he became known as “the Angry Young Man”. He had a brief period of retirement in the ’90s before a stunning comeback in recent years starting with his role in Mohabbatein.
