The film industry veteran, who was ailing for long, died on Friday around 6.30 pm, family sources said on Saturday. The actor-director had been a part of many Punjabi films besides being known for Hindi movies like Khote Sikkay (1974), Meharbaani (1982) and Barsaat (1995)
Bearded, clad in army green and boots, talisman around his neck, a pistol in one hand, a whip in another, dacoit and ganglord Gabbar Singh was awesome. So awesome that the three principal male actors in the film - Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjeev Kumar - all wanted to play Gabbar
Actor Sunny Deol, who is back in action with Singh Saab The Great, believes there's no point remaking any of his father's films as they are "iconic".
