Veteran actor Sanjeev Kumar was one the best actors of the Hindi cinema. The actor’s birthday today will be celebrated by his million fans. After conquering the film industry with some powerful roles, he passed away at the young age of 47. From essaying the role of an old man in Sholay to playing the protagonist in Koshish, Sanjeev proved his versatility as an actor. On the legend’s birth anniversary, here are some of his unseen pictures.

The actor always had interest in films and that led him to Filmalaya acting school and theatres.  

Not many people know that Sanjeev was just 30 when he played the role of Thakur in Sholay. He was applauded for his performance as the film is still called as one of the finest arts of Hindi cinema.

The actor won hearts with his role in Sholay but not much people know that veteran actor Dharmendra wanted to play Thakur in the film.

Well, the actor is not here with us but his performances and memories will always inspire the new talents.
