Here are some of his iconic dialogues:

- Kaun kambakht hai jo bardaasht karne ke liye peeta hai, main toh peeta hoon ki bas saans le sakun

- Taqdeerein badal jaati hain, zamana badal jaata hai, mulkon ki taarikh badal jaati hai, shahenshah badal jaate hain, magar iss badalti hui duniya mein mohabbat jis insaan ka daaman thaam leti hai, woh insaan nahi badalta

- Main kisi se nahi darta, main zindagi se nahi darta, maut se nahi darta, andheron se nahi darta, darta hoon toh sirf khoobsurati se

- Haq hamesha sar jhukake nahin... sar uthake maanga jaata hai

- Hosh se keh do, kabhi hosh na aane pay

- Jab amir ka dil kharab hota hai na...Toh gareeb ka dimag kharab hota hai..

- Ek kranti marega... toh hazaar kranti paida honge

- Insaan jab andha ho jata hai, toh usko rat aur din ke farak me tameez nahi rehti

- Mohabbat jo darti ho wo mohabbat nahi, ayaashi hai... gunah hai

- Duniya me dilwale ka sath dena, daulat waale ka nahi...

- Mulk ka har sipahi jaanta hai ki, uske jism par woh khaki vardi, joh uska maan hai woh vardi uska kafan bhi ban sakti hai...
