  • Angoor
    As two sets of identical twins separated at birth, Deven Verma and Sanjeev Kumar are irrepressibly hilarious in this laugh-a-minute riot. Their funny antics are pretty much unmatched in Bollywood. This is widely regarded as one of Verma's finest performances
  • Khatta Meetha
    In this evergreen 1978 film, Verma portrays the character of Dara, who is desperate to tie the knot, and eventually ends up marrying Ashok Kumar's daughter Preeti Ganguli in the film. In real life, Verma was married to Kumar's other daughter, Rupa
  • Buddha Mil Gaya
    In this surprise hit, Verma teams up with the underrated Navin Nischol, as one of the two unemployed slackers, who come across a paper advertisement about a missing millionaire, and make him their paternal uncle
  • Golmaal
    In a loveable cameo, the comedian plays himself in the film, who helps out Amol Palekar when he gets into trouble. On the left is Amitabh Bachchan, who made a special appearance in the movie
  • Chamatkar
    In this 1992 ghost comedy, Verma portrays inspector PK Santh, who is earlier terrified by Shah Rukh Khan's miraculous ways, but ends up helping him in the climax
  • Andaz Apna Apna
    In this hilarious 1994-cult comedy, Verma made a special appearance as Aamir Khan's dad. In spite of limited screen time, he made his presence felt with his wit
  • Ishq
    Verma had a small role in the 1997 comedy too. He played a rich Parsi character of Behram, who runs his own store. Again, Verma's versatility came to the fore as he tickled the funny bone
