Gabbar Singh’s Kaalia, Viju Khote, is no more

Despite his reminder to Gabbar Singh that he had been loyal to him, Kaalia was not spared. For years to come, “Tere kya hoga Kaalia” delivered in a menacing tone became the line for retribution about to strike.

Viju Khote, the man who made that scene iconic along with Amjad Khan, passed away in Mumbai on Monday morning. He was 78. Khote had been ailing for some time now. 

Apart from `Sholay’, Khote also was to make his mark as Robert in the rib-tickling comedy `Andaz Apna Apna’.
