Balraj Sahni, His simple persona and sophisticated demeanour made him one of India’s greatest actors. Sad as it is, his potential remained largely ignored in a film industry geared towards over-the-top melodrama from actors. Sahni’s contribution to cinema was honoured with the Padma Shri Award in 1969.

In his life, he illuminated many a film with the quiet dignity of his performance. But more than his films, Sahni will be remembered for his humanity.
