Hindi cinema popular villian 'Mogambo' was rejected for his face look

Amrish Puri, who won everyone's heart with his stellar performance in Bollywood, was born on this day. Amrish Puri played the villain in many of the best films and the same role made him make a deep impression in the hearts of the people. It was because of this role that girls started afraid of him. His screen test for an actor was first held in 1954, and the producers did not like him during that time.

At that time, the producers had categorically refused to take him to films saying that his face was not worthy of being a hero. Amrish Puri was deeply hurt by this. He then chose the role of a villain in films which was his compulsion. But then perhaps he did not know that by playing a negative character he would join the great 'villains' of Bollywood. Though Amrish Puri may not be among us today, he is still one of the most famous villains in the film industry.

Amrish Puri was passionate about acting and that is why he did not give up acting even after the producers turned down and started working in theatre. Amrish won the hearts of the people by working in films like 'Nishant', 'Manthan', 'Bhumika', 'Iman-Dharam', Papi, Alibaba Marjina, Jani Dushman, Sawan Ko Aaya Do, Aarogya and Qurbani. After becoming a superhit villain, Amrish started charging the desired fee and if he did not get that fee, he would leave the film. He made more headlines by working in superhit films like 'Ram Lakhan', 'Saudagar', 'Karan-Arjun', 'Coal'. Apart from negative, Amrish also played positive characters and on January 12, 2005, he bid farewell to the world.
