Ajit Khan

Postby aryan on Sat Apr 09, 2011 10:33 am

Ajit (Hindi: अजित), screen name of Hamid Ali Khan, (born 27 January 1922 in Golconda, died of cardiac arrest on 22 October 1998 in Hyderabad) was a Bollywood film actor. Ajit, a popular villain of Hindi films, was known for his stylish and peculiar dialogue delivery. His dialogues ``Mona darling, smart boy, Lili don't be silly, mona loot lo sona, went on to become a rage and they sometimes overshadowed his earlier remarkable performances.

Born Hamid Ali Khan, near the historic place Golconda, Hyderabad, Ajit had his early education in Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh.One can trace his roots in Shahbaad Dist Hardoi U.P. Hamid was the son of Bashir Ali Khan who was in the Nizams army. Ajit had a younger brother Wahid Ali Khan. Ajit entered the film industry to become a hero and did quite a few creditable films as lead artiste in Nastik, Bada Bhai, Milan, Baradari, and later as a second lead in Mughal-e-Azam and Naya Daur to name a few. Film Director K. Amarnath, who directed him in Bekasoor, suggested that the actor change his long name of Hamid Ali Khan to “something shorter”, and Hamid homed in on “Ajit”.

Ajit Khan

Ajit, who ran away from home to Mumbai after selling his college books, started his career in the 40's. Luck did not favour him in the initial stages of his career, he started his career with the 1946 movie Shahe Misra opposite heroine Geeta Bose & also did films as Sikander (van mala), Hatimtai(1947), Aap Beeti (Khursheed), Sone Ki Chidiya (Leela Kumari), Dholak (Meena Shori) & Chanda Ki Chandni (Monica Desai) as leading hero but flopped. He did most of films (15) with Nalini Jaywant. Ajit switched over to play the villain. His first movie as a villan was Suraj and with films like, Zanjeer, Yaadon Ki Baraat among others, there was no looking back for Ajit.

In the mid-seventies he had acted in over 57 films mostly as a villain. His dialogue delivery remains so popular even till this date. His colleagues in the film industry—leading personalities who have acted with him, grown seeing him in Mumbai—have expressed deep sorrow over the death of the legendary actor.

Writer Javed Akhtar, who scripted Zanjeer, said, ``Like Bachchan, Ajit found a new image as villain after Zanjeer. He started a new innings in his career though he was an established hero in the fifties. His villainy started a new trend. Here was a new villain who was soft-spoken yet forceful. We wanted to give a different image to villainy which matched the hero.

He had three sons Shahid Ali Khan, Zahid Ali Khan and Abid Ali Khan

Another `villain' Amrish Puri said Ajit's death is a sad loss to films. ``Ajit developed his own style of acting and delivery of dialogue. We still remember his style of acting which is guidance to the new generation of actors. Prem Chopra, who starred with Ajit in many films like Jugnu, Chupa Rustom and Ram Balram as father and son team, said Ajit was devoted in his work. He had a subtle sense of humour. He was a cultured man. We had a common interest -- reciting Urdu shairi.

New generation villain Kiran Kumar was shocked to hear that ``his Ajit uncle had died. ``Our relationship was more personal than professional. I must have been hardly eight or ten years when my father(veteran character actor Jeevan) used to take me to Paradise Bakery opposite which was Ajit's residence. Father would call him by his first name Hamid, and would call him down. Ajit would come down, wearing lungi and Jaali Banian to chat with my father.

Acting in over 200 films, he specialised in playing suave villains with memorable catch-phrases delivered in now iconic Ajit style nasal drawls such as "Mona, darling" and comic threats such as "Dump this man in liquid oxygen. The liquid won't let him survive, the oxygen won't let him die". Ajit also brought to fame the smuggler as the villain. In his movies, he is generally seen smuggling gold biscuits in or out of the country. It has also been noted that most of his gang members had Christian names like Robert, Michael, Peter etc. This also has been used for comic purposes in parodies.

It was the menacing voice he was most famous for. He is still remembered for bringing the most famous villains in the history of Indian cinema to life. His contemporaries include veteran actors like Amrish Puri, Pran, Prem Chopra and Amjad Khan. Some of his popularity in present time is due to the innumerable jokes and parodies made on his famous lines by comedians.

Famous catch-phrases

* Mona, darling,
* Lilly, don't be silly,
* Sara shehar mujhe Loyan (Lion) ke naam se janata hai,
* "What's your problem?"
* " I lost my glasses"
* " Smart Boy"
* " How very interesting.."
