Samba is no more...

Mac Mohan, who played the 'perched high on the rock, I will answer Gabbar's questions' dacoit - the much-celebrated Samba died of cancer on May 10, 2010 at Kokilaben Dhirubhani Ambani Hospital in Mumbai. He was 71.

Born Mohan Makhijaney, Mac Mohan acted in over 175 films, in a career spanning 46 years. But the one role that he will always be remembered for:

Gabbar: Are O Samba kitne inaam rake hai sarkar hum par?
Samba: Poore pachas hazaar! 
Gabbar: Suna! Poore pachaas hazaar!

May another Sholayite rest in peace....
