Mehmood was one of the most celebrated comic actors of the Hindi film industry. In spite of rarely playing the lead role, he was a superstar alright. His name helped producers sell more tickets and his picture on the poster ensured that scores turned up at the theatres. He had worked in over 300 Bollywood films in his entire career span. Some of his most loved Bollywood films include Padosan (1968), Bombay To Goa (1972), Do Phool (1973), and Kunwara Baap (1974).
