When `baddies' jam up


Arre oh Samba! Remember Gabbar Singh roaring those famous lines in Sholay? Villain he did look onscreen, but anyone seeing him and his black and white hair and equally streaked but trimmed and well-kept beard would not think of him as a villain.

Macmohan has acted in oh-so-many films and has drawn applause for oh-so-many roles. He started with a solid foundation in theatre and after about three-and-a-half decades of films, is getting back to theatre again.

In the city for the inaugural of the Children's Film Festival the other day, he was pleasantly surprised to find another villain walking up to him and shaking hands. The villain Ashok Kumar is also a film producer but is better known for his role in `Osey Ramulamma'. It was fun watching two villains meet and chat up. And as flashbulbs popped, camera shutters went clickety-click at the Lalitha Kala Thoranam.
