Bollywood actor Jagdeep passes away at 81, Celebrities mourn his death

Bollywood will always remember Jagdeep for playing Soorma Bhopali in the cult film Sholay

Veteran Bollywood actor-comedian Jagdeep is no more. He passed away at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on Wednesday due to age-related issues. He was 81.

Jagdeep appeared in around 400 films but it is his role as Soorma Bhopali in 1975 film “Sholay” that is etched in audiences’ minds even today. His catchphrase “Mera naam Soorma Bhopali aise hi nahi hai”, much like other dialogues of the film, became a hit.

His last-released film is “Masti Nahi Sasti” in 2017. The Ali Abbas Chaudhary-directed comedy also featured Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Johnny Lever and Prem Chopra.

Jagdeep is survived by sons Javed Jaffrey and Naved Jaffrey who also made their mark in the entertainment industry. Jaaved is a noted actor and dancer, and along with Naved, he hosted the long running and popular dance show, “Boogie Woogie”. The show was created and directed by Naved.
