Dara Singh who passed away today was first a world-renowned wrestler in the late 40s and the 50s and was given the title of Rustam-e-Hind for his wrestling prowess. He later turned to cinema and acted as an action hero in a large number of film in the 60s and 70s. He also famously went on to play the role of Hanuman in the epic television series Ramayan.

 

He surely deserves an elaborate post as a tribute. But till we come up with it, here is the wonderful scene from his last released film Jab We Met :-
