On Balraj Sahni's birth anniversary, here are some facts about him

Balraj Sahni was a popular actor in Hindi films in the 50 and the 60s. He passed away at the age of 59 in 1973, just a month before his 60th birthday. To fully understand his character of a rickshaw puller, Sahni actually ran barefoot on Kolkata's streets and also pulled rickshaws. Sahni was arrested for his left-leaning in 1951 while doing K.Asif's 'Hulchul'. The director had to take the court's permission for Sahni to shoot under police escort.
