Trivia time #7

Which Hindi film star was first seen in this film, and what is the film’s name? I think it is one of the best Hindi movies ever made.


Karishma guessed correctly that it’s a very young Sanjay Dutt on the left; the movie is Reshma Aur Shera (1971) which was produced and directed by Sunil Dutt, who also starred in it. Sanju appeared in a qawwali performance at a fair. I think Philip Lutgendorf’s review is the best one I’ve read on this amazing film.

  1. I definitely won’t be able to recognize the movie but is that a very very young Sanjay Dutt we see here??????

  2. Yes, it is a very young Sanju Baba :-) Hint: he only appeared in this qawwali in the film.

  3. I would never have come up with that, but now that you say so, I can totally see it. Very impressive!

  4. I don’t know the answer either, but I need to say that I covet that qawwal’s tiger-skin cap.

  5. I covet both that one and the one Sanju is wearing.

  6. Who is that other kid? She looks like a familiar face.

  7. Ah! Found the name. It’s Master Shaheed.
