Most films in the past were notorious for showing the police force arriving at the crime scene after the hero had annihilated the villain. And more often than not, it would be #Iftekhar in uniform!

If anyone earned fame for playing role of a police officer, it was the stylish Iftekhar. He played a wide range of ranks right from Police Commissioner in ‘Don’ and ‘Yudh’ to Inspector General in ‘ Itihas’ and ‘Insaniyat ka Dushman’ on screen. Even in cameo roles such as one played in ‘Zanjeer’ he left a deep impact on the minds of the cinema goers.

However, he is better remembered for his role of a police officer in #AmitabhBachchan starrer blockbuster ‘Don’.
