If you are a Bollywood film lover (or even not), you are bound to be familiar with the name ‘Kaalia‘. How can we ever forget his dialogue in the film, “Sardar maine aapka namak khaya hai.” From playing that to being the absolutely funny Robert in Andaaz Apna Apna, he was one versatile actor. He also starred in television shows like Zabaan Sambhalke which was telecast in 1993, which he is still remembered for. Theatre enthusiasts also remember him for all his work in Marathi theatre through the years.
