     460s Hindi film star, esp. in musical romances. 
     5Born R.K. Tuli in Sialkot, West Punjab. Film 
     6début as assistant to director H.S. Rawail and 
     7played a small role in his Patanga. Introduced 
     8by Kidar Sharma in Jogan, followed by a 
     9leading part in Awaaz; first major starring role 
     10in the V. Shantaram production Toofan Aur 
     11Diya. Early films capitalised on his 
     12resemblance to Dilip Kumar. In his early 
     13films, he is remembered as the straight man 
     14who throws into relief the histrionics of the 
     15other actors: e.g. Mala Sinha as the betrayed 
     16woman in Dhool Ka Phool; the rebellious 
     17Sunil Dutt contesting familial authority along 
     18with feudal oppression in Mother India; 
     19Ashok Kumar as the court judge suspected of 
     20murder in Kanoon; the other man in the Raj 
     21Kapoor love triangle, Sangam; the doctor 
     22who treats the cancer-affected husband (Raaj 
     23Kumar) of his former lover Meena Kumari in 
     24Sridhar’s Dil Ek Mandir. However, his 
     25musicals in the 60s were more popular and he 
     26was often called ‘the Jubilee hero’ because his 
     27films would have a ‘jubilee’ run. In the 80s he 
     28launched his son Kumar Gaurav, effectively 
     29directing his début feature, Love Story (1981).
