Remembering the king of comedy, Mehmood, on his 87th birth anniversary today.
Mehmood! The very mention of his name still makes people chuckle. Mehmood set the gold standard for comedy in Hindi cinema and is the most successful comedian in Hindi cinema history.
Mehmood’s brand of comedy was unique and endeared him to all age groups. With the creative use of Hyderabadi accent, he made India laugh even as he ensured that the comedy did not become vulgar and indecent.
