She is also known for her sizzling roles in classic Indian movies like Karz and Mera Naam Joker.
6) Om Puri (18th October) –
Sometimes, people leave such a big mark on our collective conscience, it seems like they’re still here. It’s been more than 3 years since Om Puri passed away in January 2017. But, we still celebrate the birthday of Indian Cinemas’ most gutsy performer. At a time when his contemporaries were chasing money-spinning yet low on substance movies to further their image, Puri chose the road less travelled, with critically acclaimed performances in lesser known movies like Aakrosh, Bhumika Tabbaliyu Neenade Magane.
7) Kader Khan (22nd October) –

He is a brilliant comedian, and we usually remember the slew of movies he did alongside Govinda all through the 90s and early 2000s. But what many people forget is the serious, cerebral side to the man. His dialogue “Zindagi toh khuda ki rehmat hai … joh nahi samjha uski zindagi pe laanat hai”, or “Life is a blessing of God … those who don’t understand that, their life is a shame”, is a seminal note for many of us. Also, before entering Bollywood, he was an extremely successful engineering professor. Kader Khan passed away recently in December 2018.
