Farooq Sheikh, happy birthday!

The original Chashme Buddoor star celebrates his 65th birthday today

Farooq Sheikh was born on March 25, 1948. He is a popular actor, television host and a philanthropist. He was born to Mustafa Shaikh, a Mumbai based lawyer and Farida Shaikh, a Parsi in Amroli in Gujarat’s Baroda District near Naswadi village. His involvement was mostly with parallel cinema with directors like Satyajit Ray, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Ketan Mehta.

He acted in many notable films like Satyajit Ray’s Shatranj Ke Khiladi (1977), Manmohan Krishna’s Noorie (1979), and Sai Paranjpye’s Chashme Buddoor (1981). His most successful paring was with actor Deepti Naval, his co-star in Chashme Buddoor. The film has been remade by funnyman David Dhawan and stars Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Dibyendu Sharma and South hottie Taapsee Pannu. But the gossip mills are rife with stories that both Farooq and Deepti are not very happy with Dhawan’s remake.

Which of these movies will recreate the magic once again on the big screen on April 5? Do tell us what you think, BollywoodLifers!
