Manoj Kumar came to Bollywood as a ‘beggar’, learn why he was beaten up by police

I used to tell the story of India through movies. In the age of romance and tragedy, she showed a new direction for movies. We are talking about Manoj Kumar, born on July 24, 1937 in Abbottabad (now in Pakistan), whose real name is Harikrishna Giri Goswami. In his birthday special, we present you some stories from his life.

Tell them that Manoj Kumar also bore the brunt of the partition of the country. When he was only 10 years old, his family left Pakistan and came to Delhi due to partition. After spending a few days at Kingsway Camp, he started living at Old Rajendra Nagar. Manoj Kumar graduated from the Hindu College of the University of Delhi. After this, he began planning to try his hand at movies. Actually, Manoj Kumar liked to watch movies and he was crazy about Dilip Kumar. When Dilip Kumar’s film ‘Shabnam’ was released, his character’s name was Manoj Kumar. Harikrishna Giri Goswami liked this film and his character so much that he changed his name to Manoj Kumar when he entered the world of cinema.

Manoj Kumar, who showed his great performance in many successful films like ‘Shaheed’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’, ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Upkar’, started his film journey in the year 1957 with Lekhraj Bhakri’s film ‘Fashion’. In this film he played the character of a 90-year-old beggar. In the year 1960, he appeared as a leading actor for the first time in the film ‘Kaanch Ki Gudiya’. However, Manoj Kumar’s first successful film was ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ which was released in the year 1962. Tell them that Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri was also listed in the queue of those who loved Manoj Kumar. After the Indo-Pak war of 1965, Shastriji asked him to make a film about ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’. After this, in the year 1967, Manoj Kumar made the film Upkar.

At that time, Bhagat Singh’s mother was admitted to the hospital, after meeting Manoj Kumar, whom she cried bitterly. In most of the movies made about patriotism, Manoj Kumar’s character was called Bharat. Due to this, people started calling him Bharat Kumar.

You would be surprised to know that Manoj Kumar also had to face the police baton. In fact, after the partition, when he lived in the refugee camp, he used to get angry very quickly about the situation. Once he even hit the doctors and nurses in the refugee camp with a stick. Similarly, in order to show anger, he once had to be lathi-attacked by the police.
