Trivia time #30

Can anyone name all the actors (mostly comedians) in the two pictures above? One actor is in both photos. These are also from the 1973 Star & Style Annual.

Bollyviewer was the first to get most of them right; nobody knew Johnny Whiskey or Polson in the bottom photo. I haven’t seen a lot of Johnny Whiskey myself, although Polson was in several Shammi Kapoor films among others that I’ve seen him in. He very often sported a mustache and usually played a servant or havaldar type (much like Asit Sen and Ram Avtar). Johnny Walker’s real name was Badruddin Jamaluddin Qazi and Tun Tun’s was Uma Devi, which several people pointed out too. Here they are, from left to right in the top photo:

Mohan Choti, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Rajendranath, Rashid Khan, Mukri

and in the bottom photo:

Johnny Whiskey, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Agha, Polson

  1. I’ll try.

    1. –, Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi, Mehmood, Rajendranath, –, Mukri

    2. is more difficult. 4th from left is Tuntun, and the guy next to her – is that Bhagwan Das?

  2. All I can name are Mehmood in the top middle and Tun Tun in the bottom middle! The rest are vaguely familiar faces with no names… :(

  3. Is the guy next to Mukri in 1. Keshto Mukherjee?

  4. My lips are sealed until readers in every time zone have had a chance to answer, that has been my solemn promise to everyone on the other side of the world!

  5. 1. l-r: Mohan Choti, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Rajendranath, Rashid Khan, Mukri

    2. Dont know, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Agha, Dont know.

    Cant even remember seeing the two unknown comedians!

  6. Johnny Walker second from the left in the first picture.

  7. Great collection photos. I can recognize almost all of them but know names of only a few.
    L to R:

    1) (no idea), Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Popatlal, (no idea), Mukri
    2) (no idea), (this guy is same from left most on first pic), (again very familiar but no name), Tun Tun, (no idea), (no idea)

    There’s more comedians that are missing from these pics.

  8. Whew, this is a toughie! I don’t know all of them, but here goes:

    1. ?, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Rajendranath, Rashid Khan, Mukri
    2. ?, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Tuntun, Agha, ?

  9. great pic! here are my two cents…

    1. Mohan Choti, Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi (Johnny Walker), Mehmood, Rajendranath, Rashid Khan, Mukhri

    2. (don’t know), Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Agha, (don’t know)

  10. Maybe you could post a screen capture of each of them when you’re posting the answer so we could recognise them?

  11. Oh my goodness, that is Johny Walker 2nd from left in the top picture. I didn’t recognize him with that sober look on his face. :D

  12. lol how funny that johnny and mehmood are standing next to each other after declaring how much they hated each others comedy styles!

  13. I think Bollyviewer recognizes the most faces. In the 2nd pic, isn’t the guy on the extreme right, Coca Cola? The guy on the extreme left, don’t know his name, but didn’t remember him as a comedian. Have seen him as a baddie though in many films.

  14. I have the same guesses as bollyviewer on the first one. On the second, other than Mohan and Tun Tun, I can’t name any of the rest.

    ~r

  15. same as Bollyviewer… I dnt know Rashid Khan in the first pic so wont go with it…
    Second Pic – same as bollyviewer

  16. Pic 1 l-r : Mohan Choti,Johnny Walker,Mehmood,Rajendranath,(not sure) and Mukri.
    Pic 2 l-r : (not sure-seen him as villain’s henchman in some movies),Mohan Choti,Dhumal,Tun Tun/Uma Devi,Agha,(can’t place him-have seen him lots of movies,though).

  17. Ah, so that’s Johhny Whiskey. I remember seeing him in movies, and seeing his name in the credits, but never got around to figuring out who he was.

  18. i enjoy this image. Old is Gold.

  19. Polson was in Apradh!!! I noticed his name in the cast and thought “Wonder who that is and if he is related to Canadian beer?” :) And now you have shown me the light!

  20. Johnny Whiskey is the guy who sings “O paape na sharma” in Sagaai.

  21. Ah, so that’s Johhny Whiskey. I remember seeing him in movies, and seeing his name in the credits, but never got around to figuring out who he was.Ha! You are right! :-D

  22. And I guess everybody knows that Polson’s sister is Indra Bansal (another ‘fat’ comedienne) and ‘Polson’ was a brand of commercial butter before Amul..
