Dara Singh Punyatithi: Veteran wrestler and actor Dara Singh does not need a new introduction. Very famous for his famous character of Lord Hanuman in Ramananda Sagar’s Ramayana, Dara Singh became a household name in the country with his flawless performance in the popular 1987 TV series.

Despite a long list of Bollywood films, very few people know that he started his career as a stunt actor and starred in the 1962 King Kong film many years later. Apart from being a great wrestler and actor, Dara Singh was also the first player to be nominated for the Rajya Sabha.

While young people know him for his work in films like Kal Ho Na Ho and Jab We Met, Dara Singh is known for winning the title of Rustam-e-Hind. Let’s take a closer look at his famous works on the occasion of his tenth death anniversary:

  1. When we met
    In Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met, Dara Singh played the role of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s grandfather. Released in 2007, the film was Dara Singh’s last appearance in a Bollywood film, as the veteran actor passed away on July 12, 2012 due to a long illness. Dara Singh’s last scene with Shahid Kapoor and Kareena is one of the most iconic parts of the film.
  2. Maybe not tomorrow
    The late actor had played Shah Rukh Khan’s neighbor Shri Chadha in the Nikhil Advani directed film. Preity Zinta’s love for her grandmother, her lively comedy and her subtle comedic role of funny moments in the film won the hearts of many.
  3. Happiness
    Directed by Sunny Deol, who starred in the 1999 film, Dara Singh played the role of the father of Sunny and Bobby Deol in Dillagi. The role of Dara Singh was very much alive in the romantic film, in which Urmila Matondkar was also in the lead role, while the late actress Reema Lagoo played the role of Urmila’s mother.
  4. Man
    Released in 1985, Mard is considered one of Amitabh Bachchan’s most famous works. Directed by Manmohan Desai, the film stars Dara Singh in the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s father. And it would not be wrong to say that his famous dialogue “Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota” is literally immortal.
  5. My name is Joker
    Raj Kapoor’s directing in 1970 is counted among the most prestigious films in Hindi cinema. In this romantic drama film, Dara Singh played the role of smart ring master Sher Singh.
