Sambha of Sholay, Mac Mohan is dead

Character actor Macmohan, best known for playing the role of Gabbar Singh’s sidekick Sambha, in Ramesh Sippy’s superhit 1975 film Sholay, died this afternoon at the Kokilaben Dhirubhani Ambani hospital at Andheri (West).

He was suffering from cancer.

Macmohan, who started his career with the film Haqeeqat in 1964, acted in over 175 films in a career spanning 46 years.

But his greatest moment came in the 1975 blockbuster when Amjad Khan’s character asks him, “Arre o Sambha, kitna inaam rakhe hain sarkar hum par?” and he answers, “Poore pachaas hazaar”.
