Feroz Khan: The last Mughal of Bollywood
Feroz Khan, a person with a different walking style, fabulous dressing sense and a different dialogue delivery style of his own has breathed his last in April this year leaving behind his impact in the hearts of the Bollywood fans.
THERE ARE very few people in Bollywood, who have established a persona of their own and their acting never reflects the shadow of any other person. One of them is the legendary actor Feroz Khan.

Blessed with the beautiful looks of an Afghani, he was a person who deeply admired the Indian culture and always tried to show it's beautiful colours in his movies. A person with a different walking style, fabulous dressing sense and he also had a dialogue delivery style of his own. This style was first established in 1975 in the movie Dharmatma and continued till Welcome in 2008.

There was always a different variety in the characters, he choses for himself like a brave cop in Janbaaz and Yalgaar, a dedicated friend in Dayavaan, a lover with an emotional friendship touch in Qurbani. He always fulfills the demand of the character with his marvellous acting skills and styles.

Feroz Khan was born on September 25, 1939, in Bengaluru. His father came from the Ghazini province of Afghanistan and had a business of his own. After early years of education Feroz Khan came to Mumbai along with his two brothers Sanjay Khan and Akbar Khan.

Started with the second lead roles in Indian cinema, he got the first break in the movie Didi in 1960. His first movie as a hero was with Simi Grewal titled as Tarzan goes to India in 1962. He got recognised first with Oonche log in 1965, and then with Aarzoo, he got himself completely established in the film industry. He got the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor in a supporting role for the movie Aadmi aur Insaan in 1969. After that a long successful journey of movies like Mela, Safar, Apradh, Geeta Mera Naam, Khote Sikkay, Kala Sona started.

In 1977, he achieved another milestone as a producer and director for his classic venture titled Dharmatma, inspired by the movie The Godfather. He achieved huge success with the movie apart from the large applauds for it's music and lyrics. He provided the new definition of cinema by proving that songs can also have a huge importance in a crime movie. The whole movie was shot in Afghanistan, the first ever by an Indian. After that he made successful contributions to Indian cinema with movies like Qurbani, Janbaaz, Dayavaan and Yalgaar.

Although making very less appearances in the last decade, he has always made an impact whether it was Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena or Welcome.

He was a person of brave heart fighting the cancer for a long time and ultimately took his last breath in April this year. Though this legendary performer is no more, yet he will remain alive in the hearts of Bollywood fans forever.
