Feroz Khan tasted success with the very first film he produced and directed. 'Apradh' (1972), co-starring Mumtaz, was the first Indian movie to showcase auto racing in Germany
Feroz Khan, it was, who presented Hema Malini in a glamorous avatar in 'Dharmatma', his grand remake of 'The Godfather'. The 1975 movie was the first Indian film to be shot in Afghanistan
Apart from his stylised looks, memorable dialogues were also key to Khan's popularity. Nothing beats this gem from 'Qurbani' (1980) "Bhagwaan to ho nahi sakte, Insaan to lagte nahi, aur shaitaan se mein nahi darta." 'Qurbani' also introduced Nazia Hassan to the Indian audiences. Her 'Aap Jaisa Koi' track remains a cult hit
