Villains in Indian Cinema

Pran Kishan Sikand

Pran Kishan Sikand dreamt of becoming a professional photographer. Little did he know that a measly, humble ‘paan’ (betel leaf) would change his life and set him on his destined path. It was 1939 or thereabouts. Pran was at a ‘paan’ shop at Lahore, enjoying a munch with his friends when a stranger approached him and asked whether he wanted to act in films. Pran was amused and asked his name. Stranger introduced himself as Muhammad Walli, a renowned film maker in the flourishing film district of Lahore. He said he was making a Punjabi film and Pran looked a perfect fit for the role of a villain in the film. Pran just brushed him off. Walli kept insisting that he pay a visit to the studio, and pushed a piece of paper with his address into Pran’s hands. The film was Yamla Jat (1940), a runaway hit that year. »

Mahie Gill plays Mona Darling in Zanjeer remake

9 April 2012 3:57 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Bindu's iconic 'Mona Darling' act in Zanjeer in 1973 is now being taken over by the audacious and saucy Mahie Gill.

This week, Gill was signed for the coveted role above the other top contenders for the iconic part--Mallika Sherawat, Malaika Arora and Jacqueline Fernandez-- on the strength of her "raw earthy appeal".

We also hear that Mahie's seduction of the arch-villain Teja, played by Ajit in the original and by Prakash Raj in the remake, would exceed all the limits imposed by Bindu's conservative vamping in the 1970s.

While Bindu (married to her husband and to self-censorship when she reigned with her vampish voluptuousness during the 1970s) got away with slit dresses and body stocking showing thunder thighs and buxom torsos in Zanjeer, Mahie, we are told, would be doing some heavy duty love-making scenes with Prakash Raj and would also need to get into better shape for a bikini. »
