Best Known for his roles in Agneepath as "Kancha Cheena" which was later portrayed by "Sanjay Dutt" in a 2012 remake. It was a different charm to play a negative role in films during 1970 to 1990 as villain's role was second most important during that period. The actor made his Bollywood debut in 1971 with film "Zaroorat". Soon after that the actor came to lime light as a popular villain of that times.His anti hero work in films like 36 Ghante, The Burning Train, Bandish and Agneepath is still remembered.

In last few years the actor has featured in movies like Naam Shabana ,Baby and Bang Bang. He has slowed down his work as he feels that he can do other things when he's not acting. The actor said:  "I can do that, I can meditate and go around the world. I can paint and do gardening but it is nice to do a film when there is a good script. I keep getting scripts, I read them and then I do one film a year which is a nice change." He further added that he mostly shoots during winters as it's a relaxed situation for him. His latest flick "Bioscopewala" has released this friday. The film is an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore's story "Kabuliwala". the film is set in 19th century in the 1980's during the Taliban Regime and changed the profession of  a dry fruit seller to a man who goes around showing films to children through his Bioscope.
