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....

  1. Thakur, Gabbar, the gypsy musician (Jalal Agha), Ramlal and Sambha are all in their heavenly abode. And the blind imam has outlived them all. Long live A.K. Hangal and cheers to all Sholay fans!
