"Itna sannata kyun hai bhai?" RIP AK Hangal

AK Hangal

I was sad to hear that vetran actor A.K. Hangal passed away on Sunday, sadder still that his funeral was poorly attended by Bollywood’s star community. The grandfather figure that everyone knew and loved from his 225 Bollywood films (and especially from his legendary line in Sholay) passed after a prolonged illness aggravated by a recent hip fracture. He was 95 years old.

According to HT the actor made headlines in 2011 when he revealed his finances were in bad shape and he could hardly afford food or medicine, at which point Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, offered him financial support. We remember him now for his years of service to cinematic world… may he rest in peace.

Hangal was last seen in a TV show, “Madhubala”, in May.
