As you may have heard, Bollywood actor and writer Kader Khan is making a comeback of sorts. The 79-year-old, who has written dialogues for iconic Hindi films such as Amar Akbar Anthony (1977) and Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978) and has appeared in more than 300 films, has largely been absent from mainstream Hindi cinema in recent years as compared to the '90s. However, this year, aside from appearing in Tevar, he will also be seen in Welcome Back and Hero.
On Sunday, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted about the veteran's return to the industry.
T 1957 - Kadar Khan .. great colleague, writer, contributor to many of my successful films .. returns to film after a long hiatus ! Welcome— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) August 9, 2015
As an actor, Khan regaled audiences in the '80s and '90s with his sharp, often-acidic wit, impeccable comic timing, and deadpan delivery. We asked people on Twitter to share with us some of their favourite scenes and moments featuring the actor. Here are five that most seemed to agree on.
