But it is only in the last 15 days that I got the opportunity to spend some quality time with her in New York. And I can easily say, ‘She is my hero’,” Kher tweeted on Saturday.

He also shared a photograph of Bendre, which she had posted after chopping off her hair for the cancer treatment.

“Superstar” Rajini’s contribution to bollywood

Rajinikanth has worked in over 200 films in a career that spans more than 30 years. But sadly his outings in Hindi cinema were limited to the peak of his popularity in the ’80s and ’90s. Even then, he barely managed to work in 20-odd movies. But we bring you a list of 10 hindi films where Rajini sir rocked the Hindi audiences with his sensational style.

Andha Kanoon (1983)

Rajnikanth’s big debut in Hindi, Andha Kanoon was a runaway hit and it laid the foundation for the Thalaiva to make a prolific career in Hindi films. In Andha Kanoon Rajni played an angry young man who’s out on a revenge spree against the people who killed his family. Interestingly, the original angry young man Amitabh Bachchan played a special role in the film too. But it was Rajni’s all-black outfits and inimitable style that made this movie with Hema Malini so memorable.

Bewafai (1985)

There was a great deal of surprise and mystery attached with Rajnikanth’s role in Bewafai. The film features a love quadrangle between Rajesh Khanna and three women played by Tina Munim, Meenakshi Sheshadri and Padmini Kolhapure. Rajni sir’s character is a killer with ulterior motives. His presence adds a twist to plot. His performance brings in a slick edge to the proceedings too.

Bhagwaan Dada (1986)

Rajnikanth played the classic big brother in this movie. He played a godfather like character who gives up his life of crime to be a saviour and protector of the poor and exploited. He’s called Bhagwaan Dada and a kid Hrithik Roshan plays his adopted son. The movie also has Rakesh Roshan and Sridevi and this film about being a good human being was like mirror to Rajni sir’s real–life benevolence.

Uttar Dakshin (1987)

A colourful and wealthy guy, Rajnikanth’s character in Uttar Dakshin was unlike his usual action-oriented self. His fluent dances while wearing colourfully stylish clothes is a distinct memory from this film. The movie also features Jackie Shroff and Madhuri Dixit in what is a straight-laced family drama.

Chaal baaz (1989)

This movie was all about Sridevi in a double role, but Rajnikanth had a memorable role too. He played a merry taxi driver who loves his beer and liquor. The movie was high on comedy and the action department was handled by both Rajni sir and Sunny Deol.

Hum (1991)

Rajnikanth teamed up with Amitabh Bachchan once again, only this time he played his much younger brother in Hum. The main role in the film belonged to Mr Bachchan, but Rajni sir lent able support in scenes of comedy and action. Again, he played a police inspector but he didn’t have too much of his usual stylish and aggressive streak. Instead he played a mellow brother with consummate ease.

Aatank Hi Aatank (1995)

Inspired by The Godfather, Aatank Hi Aatank was the last time Rajnikanth featured in a Hindi film in a prominent role. The only other time he made a foray into Hindi movies was his small appearance in RA.One. But in Aatank Hi Aatank he played Munna, an orphan who’s adopted by the central character of Shiv. The movie also features Aamir Khan as Shiv’s real son. Young Aamir and Rajnikanth feature as brothers who make a mean, crime fighting team.

Bollywoods’s greatest comedians- do you know who tops the list ?

Our Hindi movies are incomplete without the pinch of comedy and comedians. The comedian’s quest in Bollywood is to captivate the moviegoers through jokes and acting weird. Although the standard of comedy is open to debate there is no denying the fact that the stature of a comedian has only gone down over the decades. But there has been a sudden rise in all things comic in Hindi cinema. Bollywood is currently endowed with many ingenious and exceptional actors with eugenic taste for comedy who have taken the arduous challenge to make people laugh throughout their life. And without further ado, here we go a list of top 10 comedians who gave Indian cinema a new dimension.

Rawal makes us laugh even in the slackest movie with his preposterous acting.

8. Rajpal Yadav:

Rajpal Yadav has his own simple and unconventional sense of comedy. Yadav started his career with Doordarshan’s serial ‘Mungeri Ke Bhai Naurangilal’. He is a pass out of National School of Drama and truly a wholesome entertainer besides being a rib tickling comedian. Even his physical presence on the screen brings a smile on faces of viewers. Very few are aware of his talent as a screen play writer for ‘Mein, Meri Patni Aur Woh’ which earned him a lot of positive accolades.

7. Johnny Lever:

John Prakasa Rao Janumala commonly known as Johnny Lever has nearly 350 films to his credit. The journey of the extremely talented actor in the film industry is like a fairy tale.

He is the one of the most senior and hard working comedians who has worked in more than 450 movies in Hindi and Urdu.

5. Asrani:

Anyone who has seen ‘Sholay’ can immediately identify the hilarious jailor in it. That role catapulted Asrani to legendary status. His full name is Govardhan Asrani and he is still entertaining us with the same zeal as before. Asrani completed his professional acting course from Film and Television Institute of India, Pune and got his break in the movie ‘Hare Kanch ki Choodiyan’ in 1967. But comedy is not this immensely talented actor’s only skill. Asrani has also played pretty serious roles in films like ‘Mere Apne’. He also sang a song in the movie ‘Alaap’ in 1977 and a duet in the movie ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’ with Kishore Kumar.

4. Jagdeep:

Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jaffry known as Jagdeep has one of the oldest associations with the film industry. He stepped in Bollywood as a child artist in BR Chopra’s ‘Afsana’ which was followed by some very memorable performances. The year 1957 proved to be a breakthrough for Jagdeep. With Bimal Roy’s movie ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ he began his journey of comic roles. His role of Soorma Bhopali in ‘Sholay’ is unforgettable. He is one comedian who can make you laugh without uttering a single word.

3. Rajendranath:

Rajendranath played a side actor in Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor films, but he was more famous for his comic roles. And he made a remarkable mark of his in this area. His struggle continued till Shashadhar Mukherjee offered him a comic role in 1959 film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, directed by Nasir Hussain. His funny contrivance pushed the audiences to swim in the pool of laughter. His Hindi film legacy apart, very few are aware of his contribution to Punjabi cinema.

2. Mehmood:

Mehmood Ali, popularly known as Mehmood, was an Indian actor, director and producer but more revered as an all time comedian. A vast career of more than four decades and 400 movies, Mehmood was a king of comedy in 1960. His laurels are more in a comic role because of his typical Hyderabadi-Urdu accent. ‘Bombay to Goa’, one of the movies he directed, was the first film with Amitabh Bachchan as the male lead. His spontaneity made him the leading comedian of the silver screen and his versatility was alluring to the audiences. Mehmood and all his six sons acted together in the movie ‘Ek Baap Chhe Bete’ in the year 1978.

1. Johnny Walker:

Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi, who later became popular as Johnny Walker, was a bus conductor before becoming a comedian. Actor Balraj Sahni introduced him to Guru Dutt, who was impressed with his screen test as a drunkard and rechristened him ‘Johnny Walker’ after a Scottish whisky brand. Walker’s comic timing is equaled only by Mehmood till date. He was the first comedian for whom legendary music directors S.D. Burman and O.P. Nayyar composed unforgettable numbers like “Sar Jo Tera Chakraye” and “Ae Dil hai Mushkil”. The reason why he is on number one in our list of top 10 comedians is because despite having portrayed a drunkard in many films to perfection, Johnny Walker was a teetotaler; that speaks a lot about his acting skills.
