It was the 1961 film ‘Sasural’, which created one of the most enduring comic pairs in Hindi cinema -#Mehmood and Shubha Khote. Mehmood and Shubha Khote gave fans endless hours of laugh riot, till about the mid-1960s. “Grihasti”, “Bharosa”, “Dil Ek Mandir”, “Dil Tera Diwana”, “Ziddi”, and “Love in Tokyo” are some notable movies, this comic pair had acted in.

So popular were the two that Mehmood and Shubha could even demand songs. A number picturised on Mehmood became a must. One fondly remembers: Apni ulfat pe zamane ka na pehra hota (Sasural), Woh din yaad karo (Hamrahi), Ajhun na Aaye Balma Sawan Beeta Jaye (Saaz Aur Awaaz) and Pyar ki aag mein tan badan jal gaya (Ziddi).
