"Veteran actor Farooq Sheikh, who is best remembered for his performances in films like ‘Garm Hava’, ‘Shatranj Ke Khiladi’, ‘Chashme Buddoor’ and ‘Kissi Se Na Kehna’, died after suffering a heart attack here (Dubai). He was 65."
"...Gul Anand, the producer of funny, quaint, off-beat romantic films such as Chashme Baddoor, was interested in distributing Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (JBDY) when it was complete. At the last minute, the deal went sour for some reason. However, what he said to me personally was very revealing. “See, I am going to buy your film, Kundan,” he said, “but if you had come with the script of this film to me to produce it, I would’ve thrown it out of the window. It’s so difficult… impossible… to see this film on paper.” ..."
Mr. Sheikh died on Friday December 27.
I have seen three of the four films mentioned above. And although I like Garm Hava, I love CB and SKK. I don't know what KSNK is.
Sai Paranjpye's (सई परांजपे) CB, 1981 became a cult film for me like Kundan Shah's JBDY, 1983. I could not shake them off for a long time.
Then I thought of myself as a nerd and Mr. Sheikh proved that the nerd could win the girl. I wanted to name my future wife Neha after Deepti Naval in CB.
Mr. Baswani died on July 27 2010 and I called him an eternal Sancho Panza.
Now he is joined by his Don.
