On the 70th birth anniversary of veteran actor, Farooq Sheikh, search engine Google has paid homage to him with a special doodle.
Google on Sunday honoured late actor Farooq Sheikh on his 70th birth anniversary with a 'doodle'.
Born in a small village in Gujarat in 1948, Sheikh studied law at college, and eventually decided to try his hand at acting.
He debuted with MS Sathyu's 'Garam Hawa' in 1973 and soon gained wide acclaim for his acting skills.
He was known for his work in the movies Chashme Baddoor, Noorie, Shatranj Ke Khiladi and Umrao Jaan, among several others.
"Beyond the silver screen, Shaikh was integral to Indian theater, and his epistolary play, 'Tumhari Amrita' with Shabana Azmi delighted audiences for over two decades. TV audiences also loved him, be it for his humility in Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai, or for his comic wit in Chamatkar," said Google about the versatile actor, crediting him with "bridging the gap between mainstream and arthouse cinema in India."
