The actor,whose real name Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jafri, was not keeping well. “He passed away at 8.30 pm at his residence in Bandra. He was not keeping well due to age related issues,” producer Mehmood Ali, a close family friend, told media.

Jagdeep, famous for his expression ‘khambha ukhadke’, started his career as a child actor at the age of nine to support his family. In his first film, BR Chopra’s Afsana, he was a face in the crowd who later got a speaking part because he could say the dialogues in chaste Urdu.

Afsana opened the doors for him, and he went on to work in Hum Panchi Ek Dal Ke — for which he was felicitated by the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Raj Kapoor’s Ab Dilli Door Nahin, K A Abbas’ Munna and Bimal Roy’s Do Bigha Zameen.

It was the character of Soorma Bhopali from Sholay which would become his most memorable.
