    Lollywood celebrates Rangeela on 13th death anniversary

    The 13th death anniversary of legend comedian Mohammad Saeed Khan, widely known as Rangeela, will be celebrated in Lahore tomorrow.
    Film related personalities classed him as one of the greatest stars of Lollywood back in the day. Khan, who was also a producer, writer, director, singer and actor, performed in around 300 Lollywood films during the ‘golden days’ of the Pakistani film industry. He worked within showbiz for around four decades and was considered to be one of the top comedians in all of Asia.
    “Rangeela not only showed his talent in the field of comedy but was one of the best in every other aspect of the film industry,” senior film and stage actor Shiba Butt told The Express Tribune. “He was an extraordinary man who impressed everyone with his talent. Rangeela not only won awards for comedy but won a number of awards in other fields which included singing, directing, producing and writing.”

    Fellow stars say that he was someone who entertained and impressed through his own style of comedy, winning dozens of awards and hearts all over. “There is currently no one like Rangeela in Lollywood. He was a simple man but was enriched with God gifted talent. He truly ruled in the industry for about four decades as he excelled in every category, be it acting, writing or producing,” said senior film director Altaf Hussain.

    Khan was born in Nangarhar, Afghanistan, in 1937 but his family migrated to Peshawar when he was just a young boy. He eventually moved to Lahore when Lollywood was at its peak and started off his career writing billboards for films.

    With time, Khan landed a small comedy role which went on to open many doors for him in the film industry. He started his budding film career in 1958 with Punjabi film Jatti, an M J Rana directorial. Soon enough, the late star made a name for himself and earned much fame due to his unique acting.
