Gabbar Singh, the iconic villain from Sholay (1975) is etched into every Indian’s memory. Played by the legendary Amjad Khan, Gabbar Singh has been the quintessential Bollywood villain ever since - ruthless, vengeful, merciless, and indefatigable. Sholay (1975) marked the turning point in Amjad Khan’s acting career and catapulted him to fame. He went on to portray negative characters in films such as Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977), Des Pardes (1978), Nastik (1983), Satte Pe Satta (1982) to name just a few.

His unique diction and mannerisms, which he meticulously practised and mastered made him the prime choice as an anti-hero throughout the 70s and 80s. However, that didn’t prevent him from excelling in other roles in films such as Yaarana (1981), Utsav (1984), Chameli Ki Shaadi (1986), and most importantly as Nawab Wajid Ali Shah in Satyajit Ray’s Shatranj Ke Khilari (1977).

12th November marked the birthday of this versatile actor. Honouring his legacy, we have curated this quiz based on his filmography.
