Naa pet mein daana hai... Naa lote mein paani hai... Naa bundle mein beedi hai... Naa maachis mein teeli hai...
Almost a decade ago, the Indian film industry was not only about glitz and glamour but about the epic comedians and comic films that one could watch with the family.
When the comedians from that era marked their presence on silver screen, the nation had a tough time forgetting those remarkable performances. With changing need and requirements of the audience, the quality and type of films that are preferred has changed and so has the importance of these comedians.
We have a list of some noteworthy names who have changed the way we look at Indian comedy films.
Here's how your favourite comedians look now:
Senior artist Jagdeep has been a part of almost 400 Bollywood films. His character 'Surma Bhopali' from the film Sholay is still one of the most remembered roles that he has played.
The picture shows Jagdeep with his sons, Javed Jaffrey and Naved Jaffrey.
Asrani shot to fame with Bollywood's greatest success Sholay where he played the role of a jailor.
Asrani was born on January 1, 1941, in Jaipur and is 76 years old. He has entertained approximately five different generations.
The King of Comedy, Kader Khan is known for his dialogue delivery apart from his acting and comedy. He has also written dialogues for various films.
Kader turned 79 recently and his health is not supporting him at the moment. Currently, he is living with his son and daughter-in-law.
Shakti Kapoor got as much appreciation as Govinda for the film Raja Babu. His famous line 'nandu sabka bandu' became really popular and is still recognised by many people.
Shakti has turned 65 now and is very close to his daughter Shraddha Kapoor, as you can see in the picture above.
John Rao Prakash Rao Janumala is his birth name. He is the only stand-up comedian of India to have been nominated 13 times in the Filmfare Awards.
Johnny has turned 60 now, he is often seen at some big and small events.
That's all people.
