Mehmood was undoubtedly one of the greatest comedians of Indian cinema. He was an actor, singer, director and also a producer, but the inimitable Mehmood is best known in Bollywood as a comedian. On his 13th death anniversary, we remember the legend.

Mehmood was born in Mumbai in 1932. His father, Mumtaz Ali was a stage actor and dancer and was famous in 40s and 50s era. He began his acting career as an artist in a Bombay talkies film, Kismet.
