‘Maqsood Bhai’ says goodbye to Bollywood
Surendra Rajan, who played the famous role of ‘Maqsood Bhai’ in the popular Bollywood film Munna Bhai (MBBS), has said goodbye to the film industry.
Veteran Bollywood actor Surendra Rajan, who last appeared in Bachchhan Pandey, is known for his work in films like Munna Bhai (MBBS), The Legend of Bhagat Singh, R Rajkumar, Phas Gaye Ray Obama and Dhamal.
Although 84-year-old Surendra Rajan has been away from films for a long time and lives in Uttarakhand, he decided to try his mettle once more for a movie, which will be his last.
Surendra Rajan film ‘WHO AM I’ will have its 24th UK Asian Film Festival World Premiere this month.
‘Who Am I’ is helmed by Shireesh Khemariya and bankrolled by Shirish Prakash. The story is set in a small town on the banks of river Narmada which also features Panchayat actor Shashie Vermaa, Pagglait fame Chetan Sharma, and debutante actress Rishika Chandani.
According to Indian media, talking about the role of his last film, Surinder Rajan says, “I’m playing a character of Narmada Parikrama Wasi, a person who is spending his old age time on the banks of river Narmada. At this age, it was like enlightenment to play such a character hence I gave it a nod. I left the film industry and started living in Himachal but the concept struck a chord in my heart so I decided to do the role and gave my all.”
“This will be my last film,” he added.
Notably, Surendra Rajan had engraved a name for himself in the hearts of his fans with his ‘Jadoo Ki Jhapi’ scene with Sanjay Dutt in Munna Bhai MBBS.
