Dara Singh breathes his lastDara Singh (Raja Azaad Singh), who etched the four letter word ‘MARD’ on the chest of his son Raju (Amitabh Bachchan) in the Manmohan Desai-directed film Mard is no more. The Rustam-e-Hind, who never lost a fight in the ring, sadly, breathed his last early this morning (12 July 2012).
He died at his house where he was shifted from the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. The wrestler-turned actor had been undergoing dialysis at the hospital.
“Angel now gone to shine like a star up above,” the actor’s son, Vindu Dara Singh texted after his father's death.
The wrestler who started his film career way back in 1967 with the film Saat Samunder, ended with Jab We Met in 2007.
Singh has also been the owner of prestigious Dara Film Studio at Mohali, Punjab that he founded in 1978. The studio, that has been operational from 1980, is a self-contained mini-city with every facility within the compound.
It is a fully a equipped studio with camera, camera equipment, Nagra lights and all type of extra equipment like stands, trolleys, cables for filming movies, serials and pop albums throughout North India.
Singh is survived by his wife and six children - three sons and three daughters.
